In his interview, Pruitt discusses what it will take for his team to win against Baldwin High tomorrow night.

FHSAA Classification Changes
This is the first season where the FHSAA classification changes are affecting local high school football. Pruitt is not necessarily a fan of the changes yet, but he says that he is going to see how it goes and that “change is kind of hard when you don’t know how the change is going to work out.” He will have to change the way he schedules his team’s games in order to maximize points.
He refers to this new system as a “double-edged sword” because of how complicated it is, yet how it will help them in certain situations. He explained that depending on how well the team they play did last season, they could get points regardless on whether they win or lose.
