After being away from home for the last five weeks, Red Level is back home to take on Brantley (6-0, 5-0) Friday, Oct. 15 at 7 p.m.

The Tigers fell to Samson last week, 30-8. The Bulldogs earned a home shutout over Georgiana, 46-0.

Head Coach Kenny Skipper said his team played well at times in Samson but still needs to execute better.

“We’re playing hard and getting after people, but we’re not executing like we need to be,” Skipper said. “We looked over the film this weekend and showed it to the guys this morning. We had some bad snaps down inside the 10 and dropped balls that would have probably produced some touchdowns.”

He added that things will not be getting easier against Brantley. “Brantley is pretty sporty with athletes all over the field. We’re going to do the best we can to match up with them and hope to give them all they want,” he said.

The two teams first played in 1950 and will meet for the 67th time. BHS holds a 42-14 lead in the series and has outscored RLS, 1,351-611.

Brantley earned a 54-0 home win over Red Level last year.
