Trinity Episcopal hosts Prairie View

NATCHEZ — Trinity Episcopal looks to have its physicality tested in the opening game of the season.

At 7 tonight, the Saints will host Prairie View Academy, and head coach David King said his team would have to match their opponent’s physical play — and go a step beyond.

“Just from looking at them on film, they have some good size. They have a new coaching staff, and are looking pretty physical in their jamboree film,” King said.

The Trinity coaching staff has also been paying close attention to the film from its scrimmage versus St. Aloysius in the Cathedral Jamboree last Friday.

“Defensively, I though we were a little indecisive and more passive in that game than we’re used to playing,” King said.

“We just looked unsure. We had some young guys out there on the field, so that’s things are going to happen early on. I feel like we’ve improved in that area.”

King said practices on Monday and Tuesday were very physical, and he expects that physical play to carry over into the start of the season.

“It’s our first game of the year, at home, so we want to come out and be physical,” King said.

“As cliché as this sounds, our goal is to always get better each week. I think we’ll be better than we were in the jamboree, and we still have a lot of things we haven’t put in yet on offense.

“We’ll keep adding and adding, and we want to be a lot more fundamental this week.”

A lot will ride on senior leadership this season, and King said his seniors have stepped up to the challenge so far.

“I hope everyone’s as excited about the season as the coaching staff is, and I think they are. We’re really excited. We have a good group of seniors, and they’ve really put a lot of time in,” King said.

“All the work you put in from late May until the first week of August, and here it is, the first home game. It’s time to go out and have fun now.”
