West said beating good teams on the road is all about belief.
“It needs to stop being, ‘we can play with these teams,’” West said. “It needs to be ‘we can beat these teams.’ It starts with me being a senior quarterback. It starts with the all other senior leaders. We need to tell our guys we can beat them. Not just play with them and keep it close.”
Behind a balanced and potent attack, the Redskins average more than 42 points per game. Quarterback Hunter Atyia has thrown for 1,677 yards and 14 touchdowns and Justin Silmon has rushed for 842 yards and 13 TDs. But it’s the receiving trio of Jeffery Mead, Chris Hall and Kahlil Barnett that has toe Jags coaching staff concerned.
“They have some really good wideouts, Tall and athletic,” Langford said. “Our secondary guys are going to have their hands full. Everybody on defense will have to play well.”
Westmoore will use its running game to control the clock and keep the Redskins offense off the field. But it can’t have the same rash of turnovers it has had in other big games if they intend to win.
“We can play with anybody in this state,” West said. “We feel that in order to go beat those teams we have to limit the turnovers and just play discipline football all around. Including me. For us to beat Union, that’s what is going to have to happen. But we can play with them. We can play with anybody.”
