TALLAHASSEE, Fl. (WTXL) - It's week six of the high school football season for teams in North Florida, and District play is starting to heat up. The Godby Cougars host Wakulla on Friday night, and it's a toss up of two top ten teams, as Wakulla is ranked 4th in the state in Class 5A, while the Cougars come in 5th.
"The game is going to be a physical game," said Wakulla head football coach Scott Klees. "I think taking care of the ball and the team that makes the fewest mistakes will probably win the game."
"It's a great opponent we're playing and they've had a lot of history down there the last five to seven years," added Corey Fuller, who's in his first season at the helm of the Godby program. "It's not going to be an easy game by no measurement."
After dropping their opener, Wakulla has won four straight games, something that Klees said is a testament to the work his group has put in.
Fuller and the Cougars are a perfect 5-0 on the season, which was their total win amount over the past two seasons. Still, a lot of work to be done with both teams, and both coaches agree that getting ahead in the first District game of the year is a good place to start.
"You always set your goals and the first goal we start with every year is to win our District," said Klees. "Godby and Wakulla will be the first game in the District and it should be, like I said, just an out standing football game."
"We just have to be very disciplined this week," said Fuller. "They look to do a lot of motion and move guys around, unbalanced football. We just have to watch we watch, know what we know, and do what we do."
Friday's match-up kicks off at 7:30 at Gene Cox Stadium in Tallahassee.
