MOBILE, Ala (WALA) - Our Game of the Week for week 4 of the high school football season features a huge 6A Region 1 match-up, as the Davidson Warriors (1-2, 1-1) head to the Lip to take on the McGill-Toolen Yellow Jackets (3-0, 2-0).
On the Jackets practice field you’ll see work, repetition, sweat, success and failure. But one phrase carries them through hours of preparation. It’s concise and clear: “The only easy day was yesterday.”
“We want to come out faster everyday," said McGill senior quarterback Harry Satterwhte explaining the message. "The faster we play in practice, the faster we’re going to be in the game.”
“Each day is a new day," said Jackets head coach Bart Sessions. "We want to come out and improve as a team, each rep, and really attack practice and have great practices each and every if we want a chance to repeat as region champions.”
Standing in the way of that goal, their rival, the Davidson Warriors, who aren’t afraid to admit things are different when these teams get together.
“Higher intensity, everything comes down to the end," said senior safety and quarterback Anthony McArthur. "We have to play hard.”
“It’s a region game, a lot more at stake," said Davidson head coach Fred Riley. "The fact that all these kids know each other and know each other well, it just makes it that kind of game.”
6A Region One boasts competition unlike any other.
Put simply, if you want to make the playoffs, you don’t lose these region games. However, that's much easier said than done.
“We know our region is going to come right down to the final week and you know you just can’t have any slip-ups," Sessions said. "Each and every week there’s a tough opponent waiting for you, and our kids have to continue to have a good week of preparation and go out and play our best and see how it turns out.”
Davidson owns this series 27-2l all-time, but in a 'what have you done for me lately' sport like football, Warriors fans know they’ve dropped back to back regular season games to the Jackets.
“We don’t think about it as the rivalry, we think about it as another game to win and get it over," McArthur said. "We’re just going play every game like everyone’s the same.”
“It’s always a good game," Satterwhite said. "They’re always a really good team, so hopefully we can come out on top Friday night.”
