Air It Out: Montgomery, Perry talk about Friday's contest in Oakwood

By Jeff Hart

Our sixth episode of the Air It Out series will look at the East Hall-West Hall game. The game will kick off Friday at 7:30 p.m. at West Hall's Spartan Field and can be heard live on FM 102.9 WDUN.

We talked to East Hall coach Michael Perry and junior quarterback Clete Cooper. We also talked to West Hall coach Krofton Montgomery and senior quarterback Clayton Jenkins, as they all discussed the upcoming contest.

To watch, click play.

EAST HALL at WEST HALL
-- WHEN: 7:30 p.m. 
-- TICKETS: Pre-sale only at each school; 35 percent capacity
-- WHERE: Spartans Stadium, Oakwood
-- RADIO: WDUN 102.9 FM
-- EAST HALL (0-0, 0-0 Region 8-4A): Season-opener; 
-- WEST HALL (0-1, 0-0 Region 7-3A): Lost 26-18 to Jackson County last week
-- COVID PROTOCOLS: Mask/face coverings and temperature will be required to get into the stadium. Masks should be worn at all times. Concessions will be prepackaged.
-- NOTABLE: East Hall leads series 11-10. The Vikings won 24-7 in 2015. After East Hall won four straight from 2003-06, the Spartans have won 5 of the last 9 meetings. ... The Spartans had an up-and-down opener against the Panthers last week. They struggled most of the game on offense but used a 5-minute, 18-points barrage, sparked by a pair of defensive safeties, to grab the lead. But they were shut out the rest of the way as the Jackson County offense wore down the defense in the 2nd half. ... The Vikings defense was one of the most porous in the area in 2019 (42.7 ppg) and made some slight changes in the offseason. Expect the Spartans to be able to find some success after adjustments from their opener. ... But the key to this one will be if the Spartans defense can stop a bigger, more experienced Clete Cooper and an explosive East Hall offense. The now-So. QB threw for nearly 2,500 yards (tops in Class 3A) and will have returning WR/RBs in Mon Taber and Macere Walker.
