Senior captain Roury Glanton, a two-way star at mike linebacker and fullback, leads the team in tackles. Senior defensive end Mario Gamble leads the team with 2.5 sacks, and senior running back Jarvis Terrell is averaging 7.1 yards per carry for the Trojans. Senior defensive backs Keegan Hill and Conrad Jackson, who moved from running back to safety this season, also have made significant impacts on the Trojans’ turnaround, Dudley said.
Sandy Creek (6-2, 2-1 5-AAAA) has won the last five meetings with Carrollton. Dudley says his players believe they can end the streak Friday.
“We don’t kid our self,” Dudley said. “We look at Sandy Creek as a top four or five team in the state … great coaching staff, great players, great program. We know we’re going to have to go in there and play clean, not turn the ball over, not make those fatal errors that we’ve done in the games that we haven’t won.”
