Trinity travels to face ASC

NATCHEZ — Trinity Episcopal Day School will take its “respect all, fear none” mentality into a district matchup against Amite School Center this Friday.

The (2-3) Saints will take on a “streaky” (2-2) Rebels team Friday in Liberty.

“They’re real streaky because they played Centreville close for a while, and then whooped up on Ben’s Ford,” Trinity head coach Zach Rogel said. “They’re a bit stronger than Porter’s Chapel, and they like to run the ball. They know the blueprint to beat us.”

Rogel said Amite will have more players than Trinity and will look to run the ball with quarterback Davin Booty and David Leyendecker.

“They’re pretty quick,” Rogel said.

But the Saints are coming off of a dominant performance defensively, limiting Porter’s Chapel to only 32 yards of total offense in the shutout win.

In the victory, wide receiver Demond Fleming and running back C.J. Chatman had big games. Rogel said it was nice to see them breakout, letting future opponents know there’s not one player like Kevontaye Caston, Jakarius Caston, Cade Wells or David Jackson to plan for.

“We feel we have six really big playmakers,” Rogel said. “They would each have big games every week if they were in a different scheme. We’re trying to build young men to be a part of a team with discipline and unselfishness. We’re going to have a balanced plan of attack this week.”

The Saints will look to go 2-0 in district in the contest at 7 p.m. Friday.
