He says Valley will present a number of challenges, as he says they’re where every team in the conference wants to be.In class 2A, third-ranked Williamsburg visits ninth-rated Tipton with the outright lead in district six on the line. Tipton coach Gary Stamp felt he had a talented team coming into the season, but he wasn’t sure how long it would take them to play at a varsity level, as many didn’t have varsity experience. Stamp say what this team lacks in talent it makes up for in effort, as he says it has been a fun group to coach that’s found a way to win.In eight-man action, fifth-ranked Farragut hosts third-rated Nishna Valley of Hastings. With a victory, Farragut would take a big step toward the district three crown and the scool’s first-ever trip to the playoffs. Farragut coach Shane Stephens says the Admirals will need to control Nishna Valley’s passing attack, which includes a lot of screen passes. He says his team needs to run the ball to be effective on offense.
