After capturing their first victory of the season last Thursday night at home against in-town rival Ellwood Christian Academy, The Meadow Christian School Trojans will hit the road Friday night.

The Trojans (1-3, 0-2) will head to Prattville to play the East Memorial Christian Academy Wildcats at 7 p.m. Meadowview coach John Glasscock said his team will have a tough challenge when it plays a Wildcats team that’s from a higher division.

“They’re a 3A school and they’ve got a lot of kids,” Glasscock said. “They’ve got a lot of talent and a lot of athletic ability in their receivers.”

Glasscock said, along with athletic receivers, the Wildcats have a tremendous signal caller in Corvin Shaw who is a dual threat.

“Their quarterback is excellent,” Glasscock said. “He throws the ball real well and he runs the ball real well.”

Glasscock said the Trojans will have to bring the heat to stop the Wildcats’ offense.

“We’ve just got to put pressure on him (Shaw) and we’re going to have to cover their receivers. We’re going to have to keep them from getting off the line easily.”

Glasscock said the Trojans will have to block well, and throw the ball in order to keep the Wildcats from keying in on the run.

“They’re really big up front, so we’re going to have to do a good job blocking on the line of scrimmage,” Glasscock said. “It’s going to be hard to block them because they’re so big. We need to be able to throw the ball on them some because they’re so big and they put eight and nine guys in the box.”

We’re going to also need to hold on to the football because we didn’t do a good job of that last game,” Glasscock said. “Of course Ellwood have something to do with that because they were hitting us hard. So, this week we’re going to work on fumble drills.”
