ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Miller County and Seminole County have been waiting all season for Friday's game.
"Since the season started I already know what we had on our mind that Seminole so we coming to get them" said Miller County LB/FB Cosby Salter.
"Come Friday night they're enemies because they're trying to do what we do. They're trying to take something from us and we have to just show them what we can do" said Seminole County FB/DG Tamichael Fedd.
The schools are separated by about 12 miles but have no separation in the standings. Both teams are unbeaten in the sub-region and both want to claim the title.
"Everybody want it. I know I really want it bad. That's why I come out here every day and practice hard" said Seminole County FB/LB Barren Rambo.
"It's major you know. Our whole county want to beat Seminole so I mean we're trying to do it. We're just trying to play ball and do what we got to do so we can win the game" said Miller County RB Shawndre Sheffield.
Seminole County head coach Alan Ingram has been part of the rivalry for decades. He spent twenty years coaching at Miller County before taking over at Seminole six years ago.
"All those guys coaching up there I coached those guys and you know I tell everybody it's a family feud" said Ingram.
Also part of that family feud is Miller County head coach Frank Killingsworth. He spent several years coaching the Pirates alongside coach Ingram.
"They're 12 miles down the road, we all know each other, coach Ingram coached here we all know the whole staff, we talk and hang out when it's not football season" said Killingsworth.
What makes this rivalry even better is the balance. According to coach Killingsworth the all time series is tied with each team winning 31 times. Kick off is at 7:30 Friday night in Donalsonville.Feedback
