To take down Baker High School, the Northview Chiefs are going to have to stop a locomotive in the name of Cameron Domaingue.
Domaingue is the Baker quarterback and he has rushed for more than 1,000 yards in four games for the Gators this season. The Gators also bring a three-game win streak into Bratt for their contest with the Chiefs.
"Baker is a good football team," NHS head coach Cody Keene said. "If we want to stop their quarterback we have to be where we are supposed to be and make the tackle on defense."
Keene said if the Chiefs take care of what they need to do, there will be nothing to worry about.
"We have to take care of us and play well," he said. "We need to come mentally prepared and ready to play. I know we are physically ready, but we have to be ready mentally."
The Chiefs are coming back from an off week and Keene said that has helped his team heal.
"The open date has given us a chance to get a couple of guys who are banged up back working and healed up," Keene said. "The extra week also gives us a chance to work extra on the things we are not executing in the games."
The Chiefs put a 42-7 shellacking on the Holmes County Bonifay Blue Devils Sept. 24 and Keene said he hopes that intensity carries into the Friday matchup with Baker.
"This is a district game so we have to play well and fly all around the field like we did in our last game," he said. "And we also need our fans to continue to come out and support us."
Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. in Bratt.
