Adams County Christian School coach David King said his team has divvied up the slices of humble pie .

After starting the season with two losses to two Class AAAA teams, the Rebels (0-2) are ready to pick on someone their own size when they host Bowling Green Friday night.

“(Madison-Ridgeland and Jackson Prep) aren’t easy games to cut your teeth on,” King said. “We don’t make excuses around here. We got beat, we don’t like it, and we need to work hard on the basics.”

King said back-to-back losses to open the season can be tough on a locker room and reveal holes a team might have. The veteran coach said he is calling on his seniors to steer the ship.

“(The seniors) don’t like getting beat. Anytime you get beat, the problems you have are magnified.”

King said playing higher classifications helps his team in the long run.

“I really feel like last year we needed tests like that,” King said.

ACCS’s first home game also marks the annual military appreciation game.
