“Our kids do a good job each week of executing the game plan and I expect that again (today),” Lee said. “They guys need to keep taking care of the little things, and of course, blocking and tackling will be huge, and taking care of the football.”
Although the Greyhounds’ offensive trio of Nowak, King and Alison seem to get a lot of publicity, the Strawn defense may be the best of the two units.
The ‘Hounds lead Division II in points allowed in the playoffs and have allowed just 12 points in two playoff games – six in each contest.
In fact, Strawn defense has scored as many touchdowns during postseason play as it has given up.
Despite the facts, Lee said his defense will have to continue to play at a high level in order for the ‘Hounds to advance.
“This game will be all about making stops,” Lee said. “Our defense needs to step up and make some stops. Making stops is what it is all about this deep in the playoffs.”
