An inside look at Blair sports you'll get nowhere else
The Blazers key to success this week may be different form weeks in the past. The passing game may become a more pertinent part of the offense against Wooton. Without wide receiver Avon Jackson, senior James Mccrae will be split out wide as a receiver. Mccrae who played wide receiver last year expects to get the ball multiple times. Coach Short has implemented three new plays, which will make use of McCrae's talents out wide.
The Blazers running game must step it up. Last week against QO the Blazer backs did not get the job done and in the past when the running backs don't run well the Blazers don't win.
Against a traditionally weak Wooton team that has only one win this season all the backs should have career days. The top four rushers in the region should all be Blazers. If the rushing attack takes off that will open up the passing game. The balanced attack will keep Wooton's defense honest, meaning that they will refrain from putting eight to nine people on the line of scrimmage to stop the run or dropping their linebackers to stop the pass.
On defense the Blazers should have a field day. They should come up with multiple turnovers, from the secondary and off fumble recoveries. Big plays on defense will make it easier for the offense to get into a groove. As long as the Blazers linebackers are able to stop Wooton's favorite play the guard trap Blair should be fine.
Short should be able to go deep into the depth chart and get everyone some reps on D. Wooton's offensive star is not playing this week so this will make it easier for the Blazers.
The Blazers have victimized Wooton two out of the past three years and Friday should be no different. The Blazers are much better and by looking at Wooton's record they aren't. Friday October 26th should be remarkable day in Blair football history. The Blazers should win homecoming for the first time in countless years and win it handily.
