|WOHS looks to bounce back against Pineville|
The West Ouachita Chiefs open the regular season by hosting Class 5A playoff contender Pineville Rebels on Friday night at Sims Stadium.
The Chiefs will have plenty to improve upon after a 31-0 jamboree loss at Ouachita last Thursday.
The extra day of practice was well used by all accounts and the Chiefs are correcting mistakes made and lessons learned from the jamboree contest.
West Ouachita is looking to improve their offensive option attack that moved the ball some on Ouachita, but could not consistently maintain drives or find the endzone.
Running back Billy Minnifield was the leading rusher in the game for the Chiefs and will be counted on again to be one of the go-to players for the Chiefs as they begin the regular season against a stout Pineville defense with plenty of returning talent.
Quarterback T.J. Murphy looks to continue improving as he prepares this week for his first ever varsity start in a regular-season game.
Where Pineville could have a question mark is at their quarterback position. Senior signal-caller Mike Scott broke his leg in a jamboree win (17-14) against Grant High School last Friday night. Running a naked bootleg near the sideline, Scott fell out of bounds and had to be taken from the field in an ambulance.
Junior quarterback Cole Farrar will take over at quarterback for Pineville this week. He has been practicing with the varsity squad at Pineville for about two years and has waited for the opportunity to lead the offense.
He has gotten plenty of work with the starting offense as of late, but will be making his first start for the Rebels varsity squad at West Ouachita on Friday when the two teams kickoff at 7 p.m.
Starting running back Derrick Milton scored a pair of touchdowns that proved him to be someone that will take the pressure off of Farrar and make the Chiefs take notice of the Pineville rushing game on Friday night. Milton has had constant recruiting interest from programs such as LSU and Oklahoma this season. The senior had a 13-yard rushing score and a 21-yard receiving touchdown on a screen pass.
Defensively, Pineville stuffed the run up the middle thanks to defensive tackle Kevin Dorn who will be a key blocking point for the experienced West Ouachita line when they attempt to get their rushing attack clicking.
