FNF: SATURDAY SPOTLIGHT - NYM AT ORISKANY

HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL
THE NEW YORK MILLS MARAUDERS AND ORISKANY REDSKINS ARE TWO OF THE SMALLEST SCHOOLS IN SECTION 3 FIELDING FOOTBALL PROGRAMS YET THEIR RIVALRY DATES BACK DECADES.
EACH WEEK WE PICK ONE SATURDAY AFTERNOON GAME AS OUR SPOTLIGHT MATCHUP OF THE WEEK AND FOR WEEK 3 OUR SPOTLIGHT SHINES BRIGHTLY ON NEW YORK MILLS AT ORISKANY.
ORISKANY COMES INTO THE GAME AT 0-2 BUT AS IT IS WITH ANY YOUNG SQUAD THE REDSKINS HAVE BEEN IMPROVING WITH EACH GAME.
NEW YORK MILLS MEANWHILE WILL BRING A HIGH POWERED PASSING ATTACK AND THEIR ONE AND ONE RECORD DOWN THE BOULEVARD AS THEY TRAVEL TO ORISKANY.
THOUGH THE RIVALRY IS OLD, A NEW WRINKLE HAS BEEN ADDED THIS SEASON, AS BOTH TEAMS ARE PLAYING FOR THE MARAUDER-SKIN TROPHY.
A HALF-MAROON, HALF-ORANGE BALL THAT WILL STAY WITH THE VICTOR UNTIL NEXT SEASON.
" YOU KNOW ORISKANY IS ALWAYS A RIVALRY BECAUSE OF THE PROXIMITY TO OUR SCHOOL, THE KIDS KNOW EACH OTHER.  WHAT THEY DO IS THEY RUN MULTIPLE OFFENSIVE SETS, SO WE HAVE TO BE READY FOR ANY FORMATION THAT THEY SHOW.  AND THEY'RE GOOD, BIG TOUGH KIDS THAT PLAY DEFENSE SO WE HAVE TO BE READY FOR THAT TOO.  "

" WELL THEY'VE GOT SOME GREAT RECEIVERS OBVIOUSLY, THAT HAVE CAUGHT THE BALL AND HAVE DONE SOME NICE YARDS AFTER THE CATCH.  SO WE'RE GOING TO TRY TO SLOW THAT DOWN A LITTLE BIT.  YOU'RE NEVER GOING TO STOP THEM BECAUSE THEY DO A GREAT JOB WITH EXECUTION AND THEY GOT GREAT COACHES OVER THERE.  WE'RE REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO IT.  BUT AT THIS POINT, THEIR QUARTERBACK, THEIR RECEIVING CORE IS VERY GOOD AND THEIR LINE DOESN'T GIVE UP TOO MANY SACKS SO WE'RE HOPING TO PUT A LITTLE PRESSURE ON THEM. "

SEPERATED BY LESS THAN SIX MILES, CLASS D CENTRAL FOES THE MARAUDERS AND REDSKINS WILL KICKOFF IN ORISKANY AT 2PM TOMORROW.
