David Moneypenny says he doesn't know much about Friday night's scheduled football foe, but he also frankly admits he doesn't know a lot about his team, either.
Barring any late scheduling changes due to Covid-19, Moneypenny — the first-year head coach of the Oak Hill Red Devils — will lead his team into Friday's 7 p.m. home contest against Mingo Central. The Red Devils, as well as their Fayette County counterparts Meadow Bridge and Midland Trail, are slated to open their 2020 seasons Friday. All previous games have been shelved due to Covid-19.
Mingo Central opened its campaign Wednesday with a 28-24 loss to Man.
"I don't know a lot about either (team), to be honest," said Moneypenny.
The Mingo Central quarterback, Daylin Goad, is a "really, really good quarterback" and is "going to be our focal point," Moneypenny said.
He said his team is anxious to finally get the chance to play a contest.
"Our kids, we're still plugging right along," said Moneypenny. "The ones that have stuck with this are ready to play Friday."
After the frustration of being poised for games only to have them postponed or canceled, he says his players are "ready to compete."
Midland Trail will visit rival Meadow Bridge at 7:30 p.m. tonight. The Patriots will be seeking to avenge a 14-2 setback to the Wildcats a year ago.
