Gulf Coast faces option again

Gulf Coast faces option again

PERKINSTON — Mississippi Gulf Coast will head to Summit on Thursday looking to break a two-game losing skid. Waiting for them at Hurst Stadium will be a Southwest team waiting to throw its new offense at them.

 

"They're a triple-option, wishbone," Bulldogs coach Jack Wright said. "That's always a very difficult offense to prepare for, just like Holmes. It takes a lot of discipline, a lot of patience. It's gonna be a test of discipline Thursday night to stop it."

 

Kickoff for the clash between the Bulldogs (3-2, 0-2 MACJC South) and Bears (1-4, 0-2) is set for 7 p.m. The game can be watched online at https://southwestbearathletics.com/watch, or the MGCCC radio broadcast can be listened to at SuperTalk 103.1 FM or https://livestream.com/MGCCCBulldogs/events/8396761.

 

Twelve different Bears have run the ball out of the option, led by freshman quarterback Da'Bryan Magee who has 252 yards. Southwest is averaging less than 20 pass attempts per game and is completing 46.7 percent of those.

 

Gulf Coast has lost its last two games to No. 7 Jones and to Copiah-Lincoln despite outgaining the Bobcats and Wolves. The Bulldogs committed 14 penalties and had three turnovers last week.

 

"I'm just disappointed we didn't play as we did in the first four games," Wright said. "There were several breakdowns in several areas, on both sides of the ball and on special teams. A lot of those were untimely."

 

The Bulldogs have run for more than 200 yards in all five games, and rank 10th in the country with 219.8 yards per game. Gulf Coast leads the country with 21 rushing touchdowns.

 

Wright credits the offensive line for its strong play this season.

 

"We only gave up 52 yards passing," he said. "I think our secondary played really well, too. Those two units coming into the year were going to be a strength of our team. In games like Co-Lin and Jones, that's when that comes out."
