Eagles prepare for success on the road
Players get extra reps and rest during bye week
The Brady football team travels to Trenton Thursday night to take on Hitchcock County in the final game of the regular season.
The Eagles are coming off a bye week looking to replicate their performance last year against the Falcons.
Brady beat Hitchcock County 62-42 in the last game of the season
“The focus has been getting better on defense,” head coach Andy Seamann said. “We have to recognize their formations and improve on what needs improving.”
Hitchcock County comes off a 24-14 win over Hayes Center, a team that beat Brady earlier this season.
The Brady defense has to execute the game plan well to stop the Falcon attack averaging 44 points a game.
“They throw the ball more than any team we’ve played this season,” Seamann said. “Last year we pressured their quarterback and he didn’t like it very much.”
Offensively the Eagles look to establish the run with athletes in the backfield to open up the passing game.
Brady averages just under 20 points a game and has a high score of 54 points this season.
“We have to establish the run on offense,” Seamann said. “We put in some different tweaks but will run similar stuff as always.”
Seamann said he feels the kids have a benefit from the bye week giving them a chance for extra preparation and rest.
“We are focused on Hitchcock County,” Seamann said. “We look to play like last year against them and get better.”
