(Oct. 4, 2019) The Stephen Decatur football team hopes to turn its three-game losing streak around this Friday when the Seahawks host the Kent Island Buccaneers on their homecoming night.

Decatur Coach Bob Knox said the Seahawks’ practice earlier this week involved more contact play to prepare for Kent Island.

“We’ve got to get more physical to match their physicality,” he said.

To be successful, Knox said the Seahawks need to match the Buccaneers physically, and they need to be disciplined.

“If we can do that we’ll come out with a win,” he said.

With a number of homecoming activities this week at school, Knox said it would be important for the Seahawks to remain focused.

Knox said the coaching staff has good offensive and defensive plans, the players just need to execute them.

The game is scheduled to kick off at 6 p.m. Decatur’s homecoming queen will be announced at halftime. Fireworks will also be shot off in celebration of homecoming.
