Knights confident heading into postseason

COLUMBUS, Ga. -

The Calvary Knight kick off the 2013 high school football postseason on Friday when they host Unity Christian in a first round ICSGA matchup.

Calvary came home second in their region, good enough to open at home against a team they're familiar with. Unity beat Calvary, 36-35, on a late touchdown in week one.

"We made it second seed in our region, so we got a home playoff game, which is a good start for our playoff run," said head coach Brian Osborne. "We're excited. We're playing a team we're familiar with. That's good for us. We know it's a team we can play with and hopefully get a victory this Friday night."

Osborne cited the play of the offensive line as to the reason for the team's success. He says the Knights rushed for 38 touchdowns this year, compared to just 20 last season. They hope to ride that all the way to a state title, but Osborne's mantra is "one game at a time."

"That's what we've tried to do all year long," he said. "We're trying to say, ‘Just be 1-0 at the end of the week. That should be your goal, then everything else can take care of itself.' We're lucky this year that the state championship game is going to be played at [A.J. McClung] Memorial Stadium, so that's another motivation for our guys. They want to play for a state championship here in Columbus."

Kickoff for the Knights' game against Unity is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET Friday.
