CCS Looks to Make More History Hosting CPA in Playoff Semifinals
Chattanooga-(WDEF-TV) It has been an historic season for Chattanooga Christian.
They’ve never played football this deep into November.
Chargers now have a chance to extend their season into December.
They host Christ Presbyterian Academy on Friday with the winner, advancing to the state Championship game in two weeks.
Said quarterback Jordan Gile:”A semi-final game. Something CCS has never done before, so I think the school and especially the players are super excited for this week.”
Even the CCS teachers have playoff fever.
Said defensive lineman Devoris Havis:”Every time I come to class. Every time I walk into the hallways my teachers are like what’s the game plan? What are we doing this Friday? I’m like hey, we are going to do what we did last week to get the dub.”
To get a playoff dub, it takes all phases of the game, just ask Chargers coach Phil Massey.
Said head coach Phil Massey:”If they don’t think the kicking game is very important. I can tell them about losing a state championship game 7-6 because we only missed the extra point.”
At least the Chargers passing game is in good hands with quarterback Jordan Gile.
Said Massey:”He has completed 70 percent of his passes, and that’s a pretty good percentage. He has given us that dimension in the passing game to where it has really helped us to stay balanced because we’ve got about 26-hundred yards rushing and 2,000 passing.”
CPA heads to CCS with a 7-5 record. Looks kind of good for the Chargers right?
Until you look at the Lions schedule and history.
Said Massey:”You’ve got to look at the last four years. They’ve been in the state finals. They’ve won two and been runner-up twice.”
Said Gile:”Tell yourself hey, you are probably going to get hit tonight. Where other games you might not get hit as much. But as a quarterback you’ve got to keep level-headed.’
Said Massey:”I think our kids. I told them the biggest thing is take advantage of this opportunity because you never know when this opportunity might come around again.”
