HS FBall: New-look Shiloh Christian starting to turns head

Sports

In 9-Man football, the new-look Shiloh Christian team is starting to turn heads.

The Skyhawks started moving around some key pieces and the offense has really exploded.

Since moving potential all-state quarterback Jaden Mitzel to tight end, Shiloh has scored 69 points and 44 points in back-to-back weeks.

This week presents a big challenge: The Skyhawks face New Salem-Almont Glen Ullin, the only team to beat them in the regular season.

“The big advantage to playing a team the second time around is that you have a decent idea of how they are going to play you in some of your sets and some of your formations that you don’t use quiet as often,” Skyhawks head coach Funnon Barker said.”

This is the second time these teams will square off this season. New Salem won the first time 50-22. Kickoff this Saturday is at 2 p.m. in New Salem.
