“They’re well coached, and do exactly what they’re supposed to do,” he said.

Mason said, like a well-oiled machine, the Bulldogs play as a unit as all of their parts work cohesively.

The coach said UMS has a good quarterback, running back and wide receiver.

Last week, the Blue Devils fell 28-0 to Andalusia.

Mason said the players got a little tired late. ECHS only trailed 8-0 in the fourth quarter.

He said the main keys this week include making no mistakes, penalties and turnovers against the Bulldogs.

Kick off tonight in Mobile is at 7.
