Kersey/Przybylo Point-Counterpoint Class C, B
By Robert Przybylo and Jason Kersey
Robert: Well, not much to be said here considering we have the exact same bracket.
Robert: Yep, not one game different. I guess you could say great minds think alike.
Jason: I figured you’d might go crazy and pick Maud to beat Shattuck.
Robert: No, I’m not that crazy…yet. Maud over Temple was a big enough reach for me.
Robert: We joke around about each other having certain “boys.” One of your favorites is easily Cashion. How much of a chance do you think Cashion actually has against Morrison?
Jason: I think Cashion has a pretty good chance to pull the upset. Cayden Cochran is an outstanding quarterback, and Travis Seaton has rushed for 13 touchdowns this year. Don’t forget that Cashion only played two games that weren’t over before the fourth quarter because of the 45-point rule.
Robert: What about that fourth quarter against Dewar? You talk to Lynn Shackelford (Cashion’s coach) yet about that?
Jason: I just talked to him. He said he doesn’t think it made a difference because Dewar was in the same boat. They haven’t played many fourth quarter games either. He also said that “If you’re gonna win a state title in Class B, you’re gonna have to beat Morrison. It’s just a matter of when.” He said he likes his team’s chances against Morrison though, and feels like the biggest hurdle to beating them is not being intimidated. He said his kids aren’t intimidated.
Robert: What about confidence?? Losing at home and in that fashion to Dewar, any lingering effects??
Jason: No, I don’t think so.
Robert: Safe to say, I’m going out on a limb with Davenport. If you would have followed the Bulldogs’ path last year, you would see that they’re a road-tested bunch of kids. No Billy Jack Murphy hurts, but Greenfield is an outstanding coach.
Jason: I agree, but I don’t think there is any way they beat Porter. Porter is on an emotional high right now, being the first group of kids from the school to make the playoffs since 1994.
Robert: End B with this, how big of an impact do Cashion and Morrison make next year in A?
Jason: I think that remains to be seen. How big of a difference will it be for the kids to move from 8-man to 11-man? But based on what I know about those coaches and those kids, they will be tough. Cory Bales at Morrison and Lynn Shackelford at Cashion get the best out of their kids, and they are winners. That’s the biggest thing. The schools are full of winners.
Robert: My only concern, cause, as you said about the great coaching staffs, is the number of kids coming out for the team. Eight-man you can get by with less than 20 kids on the entire team. No top-notch team in 11-man can stand a chance going with 20 kids.
