The Salina Liberty will be back in action tonight as the staff travels to Gillette Wyoming for a matchup with the Mustangs tonight at 8pm.
Wyoming enters this game at 1-1 after falling to Dodge Metropolis 20-18 in the team’s CIF debut previous 7 days even though Salina will come in at 3-.
The Liberty have been rolling to start off their season, outscoring opponents by 50 details via the groups 1st two online games, and producing it very tricky for the relaxation of the league to place details on the board.
“Our defense hasn’t been a shock but it is unquestionably a person of the points I’m the most happy of,” Liberty head coach Heron O’Neal mentioned. “We understood they would be great but we’re undoubtedly loving the rookies that have occur in and performed well for us on that aspect of the ball.”
That stout Salina protection will have to have to be on full display this 7 days as the Mustangs boast a roster with two strong quarterbacks in Faustino Saucedo Jr. and David Perkins.
“Offensively they have two quarterbacks that can make each individual single toss,” O’Neal said. “They’re cellular and they have some guys that they can toss the soccer to. Their receiving corps is just one of the better types in the league and their offensive line is in all probability the greatest in the league.”
On the other facet of the ball, the Liberty will have to have to remain sharp on offense, pursuing 52 and 39 place performances in the team’s initially two league video games.
A massive motive for the Liberty’s offensive results has been star managing again Tracy Brooks, who qualified prospects the league in hurrying yards for each recreation, 30-yards obvious of the subsequent greatest back in the CIF.
“Tracy is participating in like the all league operating again that walked off that subject in 2019, maybe even far better,” he stated. “His vision has enhanced, he’s even larger and much more bodily and I would say he’s more rapidly side to side.”
In addition to Brooks, Salina has located their sign caller with Tyrie Adams getting over and finding good results at quarterback.
“His poise has impressed me,” O’Neal stated. “He’s never rattled and I like the way the group gravitates towards him and the way he interacts with everyone on the staff. I consider he’s only scratching the surface of what he’s likely to be as we get him far more reps in our method.”
Inspite of the truth that this is the initial year in the league for Wyoming, the Mustangs will deliver a tall process for the Liberty tonight on the back stop of a 12-hour bus journey to Gillette.
“They’re heading to be a formidable check for us,” he mentioned. “They’re most likely main the league in attendance offering out their arena each match so that’s going to be difficult to deal with. It is likely to be tricky for us to get out of there with a gain but that’s what we’re heading there to do.”
Kickoff involving the Liberty and Mustangs is set for 8pm in Gillette and the video game can be listened to on KINA (910 AM or 107.5 FM) on Eagle Radio.
