Thursday would have been legendary coach Erk Russell's 89th birthday. Nearly a decade after his death, he is still one of the most revered characters in state football history.

“They’re a big, strong, physical team. It was a tough game. It was good for our fans because we play a lot of the teams down there in south Georgia, Valdosta, Lowndes, Colquitt,” Pruitt says. “It was nice to play somebody different that some of our fans and some of our players don't have a past with. They were a worthy opponent, and very big, very strong. It was tough game for us.”
