South Christian and Grand Rapids Catholic Central played a very memorable game last season with the Cougars winning 28-27 in overtime to take the OK Gold title outright.
"Just the fight from our team to bounce back after being down 14-nothing to get a tough win in overtime," Catholic Central quarterback Joey Silveri said when asked what he remembered about last year's game. "Just the amount of fight and competitiveness to get that win."
The old rivals are set to meet again Friday in our game of the week on the Blitz.
"We are just trying to get our plays in," Sailors safety Jace DeMann said about preparation for this week's game. "Just execute them every time to the best of our ability not taking a play off or anything but every play is the play that could decide the game."
