Chiefs chasing dreams

Published 9:28am Wednesday, December 1, 2010

The Northview Chiefs make a six-hour trek to Jacksonville, Fla. this Friday night for what is currently the biggest game of their lives.

Northview will take on Trinity Christian Academy at TCA in the semifinals of the Florida High School Athletic Association.

The game is another on the “Road to Orlando” where the state championship will be held at the Citrus Bowl.

The Chiefs are currently riding a five-game winning streak including a 21-12 win over the only team to beat them this season the Freeport Bulldogs.

Looking at this Friday’s game it will all come down to tackling and winning the battles up front.

If the Chiefs are able to swarm to the ball, wrap up and make tackles then they could have a good chance at stopping an offense that boasts the No. 4-rated running back in the nation.

Stopping such a sought after recruit would show the talent that makes up the Chiefs’ defense and has held opponents back all season.

Offensively, the Chiefs will need their offensive line to continue to win up front against the Trinity defensive line.

If the offensive line can find success and open holes by securing blocks then the Chiefs’ backfield has the opportunity to control the clock and keep Trinity’s offense off of the field.

By chewing up clock and picking up yards, the offense gives Northview a great chance to put important points on the board.

This is a huge game for Northview and they need the support of their fans.

It’s a long drive, but well worth it if someone wants to see their team possibly earn a berth in the state championship game.

Chiefs head coach Sid Wheatley is confident in his team and sees the chance they have to do something big.

He believes if they play smart and execute properly then they have a great shot at a win.

The Advance will have a photographer at the game to make sure all the action is captured and hopefully able to be in the Saturday edition with the help of a Wi-Fi connection.

This game has the makings of something great and hopefully Northview will get the opportunity they have worked so hard for all season.

This team has proven they have what it takes to be champions and four quarters to earn the right to get to the game where they could become champions.

Chiefs fans load up and hit the road early Friday to make sure you get a good seat for the game.

Keep it moving Chiefs.
