At this point in the football season, it matters not who youâ€™re playing or where you play. Competition is going to be tough.
The Ridgeland Titans (13-0) are coming to West Point to take on the 12-1 Green Wave in the North Half title game tonight for a reason. They are just plain good at what they do.
