Trojans Look To Stay Undefeated As Matchup With Rival Ware Looms
Enterprise Staff Writer
The Coffee High School Trojans will face off against the Ware County Gators this Friday night, September 1, at Jardine Stadium, as the Trojans look to move to 3-0 to start the season. Ware lost their season opener last week to Glynn Academy by a final score of 31-7.
Ware was routed by Glynn Academy last week on the road and will look to pounced back from one of the team’s poorest performances in recent memory.
The Gators are always talented, but their run-heavy offense had little success last week against a team that was beaten the previous week by a Class AA school. Turnovers also plagued he Gators.
Senior running back Raja Bradley is the focal point in the Ware offense, though fans can look for junior John Jones to receive some carries as well.
Ware’s offensive line is a team strongpoint, as it is every season, led by seniors Jalynn Strickland and James Lucas.
Junior wideout Jeremiah O’Hara is a deep threat, and Roger Burley is also a top target.
Defensively, Ernest Jones is ranked as one of the state’s top linebackers, and senor defensive lineman Trey Cobb leads a talented group upfront. Touiassant Benjamin is also a skilled linebacker, and Burley leads the Gators’ secondary.
Ware County has won the last three matchups versus Coffee.
Kickoff on Friday night at Jardine Stadium is set or 7:30 p.m.
