PLEASANT GROVE'S JOSH GIBSON: "Spring Hill has a good football team. They lost a close one to L-E last week. They were leading 15-6 with three minutes to go, but L-E scored two touchdowns in those last three minutes to win. It was a disappointing end for them. They are coming into our place playing good football.

"I think we match up well with them. Most of the time, we are just focused on ourselves. We had, probably, our best week of practice of the year this week. We have been getting better and our kids feel good with where we're at. It is showing on the field and we are looking forward to the game. It's an important game because if we win we'll be 3-0 in district. We'd be 1 of only 2 teams who are undefeated at that point. We'll almost assure ourselves a playoff game if we win. We are fired up about it."

RADIO: KTRG 94.1 FM, 7 p.m. pregame.
