FOX 11 Sports Prep Expert goes 1-on-1 with Kimberly coach Steve Jones.
DR: Here with Kimberly coach Steve Jones. His team taking on Appleton North tonight in our game of the week. Steve, it's Appleton North, you've struggled against them in the past four years not winning a game. What's been the biggest difference in those outcomes?
SJ: "They have exceptional athletes and playmakers over there and tonight it's going to come down to how well we can tackle, how well we can block and if our players can make plays when they are there to be made."
DR: Your offense has been putting up 50 every week, it seems. It's going to be tough against North to do that, but how happy, though, are you the way Scott Schreiber has run this offense halfway through the season now?
SJ: "He's done a great job. It's his first year playing quarterback and he's done a great job with his progressions. With his decision making he's done an exceptional job, about 70 percent, and making some plays with his arm and his feet."
DR: Since Week 1 against Menasha, you guys have rolled. Are you interested with the way the kids respond to maybe a stiffer opponent? I'm sure you're not expecting to beat Appleton North by 30.
SJ: "The speed of the game's definitely going to pick up Friday night and it does every year we play them. It's more physical, it's faster. The kids are going to have to adjust quickly if we're going to play well."
