ANDERSON, Ind. —
“They’re a very classy school,” he said. “Great game tonight, a lot of sportsmanship. We look forward to going to their place next year and getting one against them on the turf, maybe.”
The Jets coach said that he spoke to his team about playing all out on every play after the game. He said that is something his kids struggle with and one of the struggles of having a young team.
“The biggest thing is hustling every play,” he said. “We’re still trying to find that inner strength, and especially in practice, just to be at game speed. The two punt returns are an exact example of what we face in practice at times.”
Things don’t get any easier for Anderson Prep as it travels to Jay County to take on a Class 4A team next Friday.
Heritage Christian got 198 yards passing and three touchdowns from sophomore quarterback Jackson Heath, who rushed for another score. Junior Andy Hunt had 152 yards receiving and two touchdown receptions.
Hunt also had one of the punt returns for a score.
