Two of those teams being Leesville and Tioga, who will face each other this Friday night in one of our two high school football Games of the Week.

MaxPreps ranks both schools in its top 50 for the State of Louisiana.

Currently, Tioga ranks as the 47th best team, and Leesville stands three spots ahead at 44. The two are nearly identical, and both coaches spoke about what it will take to slow their opponent down.

“In a game like this where both teams are pretty evenly matched. It’s really going to be the team that makes the least amount of mistakes that wins,” Kevin Cook, the head coach of Tioga’s football team said. “That’s what we want to do, just go play a clean football game.”

Leesville’s head coach, Robbie Causey, jokingly agreed with Cook’s statement.

“Probably some sort of plague or sickness hits their bus before they head this way, and it hits the right players,” Causey joked. “There’s no secret to it. It’s going to boil down to execution.”
