PREP FOOTBALL ROUNDUP: Vinemont inching closer to playoff berth

Bearcats’ Glenn makes most of start at QB

CULLMAN — Coming off a 33-12 victory over Good Hope, the Eagles are looking to soar into the playoffs as they come upon the remaining three games of their schedule.

“The guys played really hard, sound football Friday night,” coach Alan Scott said. “We are looking forward to continuing that play into the next few games.”

Scott defeated his alma mater Friday night, but maintained that winning games, no matter whom they are against, is the biggest priority for him and his team.

“Good Hope will always have a place in my heart,” Scott said. “ I have a lot of respect for them, but it doesn’t matter who’s on the other side of the field as long as we get a win. That’s the most important thing for me.”

A bit piece of the Eagles’ success has been the wildly consistent play of Ty Jones and the offensive line.

Jones has four 200-yard rushing games so far this season, and Scott believes its been a two-way street when it comes to Vinemont’s success on offense.

“The line is doing an excellent job of coming off the ball and creating running lanes,” he said. “But, at the same time, Jones and (Tyler) Boland don’t need a lot of space to make things happen. Both of them have incredible ability.”

The Eagles will have a chance secure a playoff spot in the coming weeks as they take on Winfield and Winston County in their next two games.

Winfield is in the midst of a three-game losing streak, but Scott says the Pirates will pose a challenge to his team.

“They’re a really big, physical team,” Scott said. “It’ll be a big challenge for our defense to step up and make plays.”

Scott added that it would ultimately come down to his team making the plays.

“We just need to go take care of us,” he said. “If we do that and play hard, then we have a good shot of winning all our games.”
