Moultrie (WALB) - First year Colquitt County head coach Rush Propst has gotten the Packers turned around with three straight wins to start the season.
The Packers unbeaten record will face a big test in their region opener at number one ranked Lowndes this weekend.
Packers head coach Rush Propst is quick to give the Vikings plenty of respect at Packer practice Monday. I
Propst said "If there's 5 better teams, 4 better teams in the country than Lowndes County I want to see them. I mean they're very good. They're program wins as many games as they're team does and when you get your program to that point that you're program can win games or win more games than your team wins that's when you know you've got you're program where it needs to be."
Meanwhile the Packers have already totaled more wins than last season's squad.
Colquitt County quarterback John Michael Harrison said "It's so much more of a different feeling around here. Everybody's all into the preparation that we do every week, practice is a lot harder and we work much more than we ever have before."
At Viking Practice head coach Randy McPherson said Monday that his team still has a lot of work to do if they're going to be ready for the Packers.
Randy McPherson said "Mainly fundamentals you know blocking, tackling, executing you know we're not there yet but our kids are working hard and they want to get there and Moultrie's gonna be a huge test."
When asked about Friday's game with the Packers McPherson summed it up best by saying quote: it should be a war.
The battle begins Friday at 8:00 p.m. at Martin Stadium in Valdosta.
