Parkway On the Road Again

Posted: Updated:
BOSSIER CITY, La. -

Back in the first week of the season, Zachary was blown out by C. E. Byrd.  Because of that many didn't give the Broncos a chance last Friday against undefeated Parkway.  But the Panthers got all they could handle in the quarterfinals pulling off the win 49-34.  Head coach David Feaster says when you're fighting for a state title games like that are going to happen.

"We like blowouts, we would have loved to blow them out. We were amazed by how easily the East St. John game started out and how well we played over there. That's what we'd like to see every week, but we just know it's not realistic. Our guys are going to have to have some gut checks. We're going to have some situations where guys get hurt, where guys drop passes, make mistakes, miss assignments and so forth, that's going to happen. It's the idea that we've got to respond to them," Feaster said. "The thing about our team all year long is we've never gotten down. You've never seen arguments with each other on the sideline, you've never seen heads hanging and guys feeling bad about it. Whenever something bad happens we just forget about it and play."

As well all know, the Panthers are on the road again this week and this time they go to Covington to face a team that eliminated district foe Airline from the first round of the playoffs.   Coach Feaster says his team has plenty more to worry about when it comes to Covington other than the way they handled a familiar opponent.

"We do look at those scores.  We do compare stuff like that, but the truth is that we look at the film and see how we are going to match up against them.  Can we block their front, can we tackle their backs? That's the type of things we're looking at; Covington's really good. They've got one big timer up front on defense and a lot of other guys that can play as well, a couple of great running backs.  So, it's certainly going to be challenge for us that we're certainly looking forward to.  When you get to the semi finals it's supposed to be hard," Feaster said.

Feaster also says if his team heads down south and plays Parkway football they should have nothing to worry about.  A pretty tall order though when you consider how well his unbeaten Panthers have played all season.

     Mississippi State may have their most complete team yet under Dan Mullen with 30 returning starters. Experience can be invaluable in the SEC, especially when it comes to the position of quarterback. And that's why Mississippi State has all the confidence in the world in Haughton native, Dak Prescott.
