Trinity wins, but King not impressed

GALLMAN — Even though the Trinity Episcopal Saints shut out both of their opponents at the Copiah Academy Jamboree Thursday night, head coach David King was not happy with the team’s performance.

Trinity defeated Copiah by a 6-0 score and then beat Hillcrest 28-0.

“The score was impressive, but the playing was not very good,” King said. “We were not ready to play high school football. That’s to be expected in a jamboree.”

And even though the defense pitched the back-to-back shutouts, King didn’t single out any player on offense, defense or special teams.

Instead, he said, “Every mistake we made is correctable. The intensity was below lackluster. In all my years of coaching, I’ve never been impressed with the way we play in jamborees and this is no exception.”

Trinity Episcopal will open up the regular season next Friday when it travels to Toxey, Ala., to take on South Choctaw.
