St. Mary’s (5-4, 3-1) is No. 11 in the Division IV power ratings.

“The tough schedule we’ve got keeps us this high,” Block head coach Bo Sproles said. “If we win, we should jump a few spots.”

Sproles said his team is going to have play solid, fundamental, mistake-free football in all three aspects of the game Friday.

“We’re gong to have to stop making immature mistakes,” he said. “If we can eliminate penalties and run the football, we’ll be OK. We also have to tackle a lot better than we did against Logansport.”
