Fast start has Rebels ready for home game

NATCHEZ — The Adams County Christian School football team has already collected more wins through four games this season than it did last year.

There is a buzz around this year’s squad, senior Shane Pollan said, and the Rebels have a new attitude.

“We are trying to bring winning back to this school and get the fans excited again,” Pollan said. “Everyone is real positive, and everyone thinks we can win tougher games. We are working a lot harder and now we are more focused.”

Pollan said the Rebels’ new attitude is why he thinks they have started the season 3-1, and head coach David King agrees that the team has improved.

“It’s not even the same group of kids,” King said about the team. “We’ve transformed into a football team, and it’s been a joy to take part in this transformation.”

The Rebels will look to keep their winning streak going tonight when they face Bowling Green School.

“(Bowling Green) beat ACCS 44-21 last year,” King said. “They’ve been up and down, but they are coming off a good win over Columbia Academy, and at this stage we can’t overlook anybody.”

The Rebels have not played at home since Aug. 24, and Pollan said hopes the team can put on a good show for the home-town fans.

“We are real excited,” he said. “We haven’t played at home much.”

King said he has seen great improvement since the jamboree, and he expects the Rebels to continue to improve each week.

“Each week we have to play more consistent, and continue to progress,” he said. “They have to understand that we’re not good enough or talented enough to overlook anybody or to be complacent. Every series, play and every snap is the most important snap of the game.”

The Rebels (3-1) will host Bowling Green (2-1) at 7 tonight.
