Northside working to turn their season around - WRBL

Northside working to turn their season around

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, GA -

Northside knows they come into Friday's game as an underdog. To reverse their season, they are relying on their seniors.

"Quarterback Jonathan Karastury is one of our big leaders. We are leaning on him a lot to do a lot of things actually: to improve practice and get the most out of younger players. That is one of the main roles he has got," said Northside Coach Mark Ingram.

"We are just trying to keep our heads up. When somebody makes a good play, we will tell them good. When they make a bad play, we tell them the things they need to fix. That is just to make them better," Karastury said.

In practice, the Patriots are working on fundamentals. In order to compete with Harris County, the Patriots will have to be physical.

 

Coach Ingram says every region game is tough. But, when you try to stop Harris County, you know you're going against a very explosive offensive attack.

"They have got the duel threat. The quarterback and running back. They are dynamic and very good athletes. Defensively, they're always good with Coach Parks. We have got our work cut out for us for sure," Ingram said.

While practice can be tough when you have a losing record, the Patriots feel better as the heart of the region schedule arrives.

 

"At points it was down, but right now, we feel rejuvenated. I feel like we got a good energy level right now," said Northside Linebacker Victor Ballesteros.

Harris County vs. Northside is this week's WRBL Tailgate Game of the Week. We will set up and tailgate around three hours before kickoff. Please come and join us.
