Cumby and Como-Pickton go back to work, trying to get a district win upcoming Friday football action.
Detroit at Cumby
The wet weather this week has hampered practices, but has not put a damper on the enthusiasm of Cumby.
The Trojans host Detroit and a win over the Eagles would be a big step for them in district play.
The two teams collide at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Frazier-Lawrence Field in Cumby. Cumby is 1-6, 0-1 in district.
Detroit is 4-3 overall and 1-0 in district.
“ We went to our indoor facility, the gym,” joked Tom Dracos, Cumby head football coach. “It is has beeb wet, wet, wet. I thought I was swamped... now I really am.”
The Trojans are coming off a tough 28-21 road loss to Overton.
“We had a pretty good Monday considering the weather and the tough loss. You can see a champion on how they come to work after a tough loss. Our kids showed up to work and worked hard. Detroit is a good football team. They have a solid offensive line that has been playing together for years. They run the ball well and their quarterback is definite leader and a special player. Their defense is very solid and run a 4-2 defense,” Dracos said.
The coach continued, “This is a big game for us and our theme this week is ‘Rise up.’ We must rise up to the challenge of this game and get a win to keep our playoff hopes alive.”
The winless Eagles will trek to Edgewood for a District 8-2A, DII game at 7:30 p.m. Friday.

“Practice is going well and the wet weather did not affect our schedule,” said Conley Bland, Como-Pickton head football coach. “We did lose a tough game against Alba-Golden, who was very physical, as they usually are. The players we have out are ready to play and will give a great effort against a very good Edgewood team. Edgewood has a lot of speed and they like to throw the ball.”
