Each Friday night can tell quite the story about the consistency for a football team.
Starkville Academy (3-0) is no exception and tonight when they face off against Hillcrest Christian (1-2), head coach Jeff Terrill is looking for more out of his Volunteers.
Some teams find time to correct some things during an open date from competition.
That has been the case this week for the Starkville Yellowjackets.

Week in and week out each and every team has weapons it possesses that can strike hard at their opponent.
In a precursor to the varsity matchup tonight, the junior high squads of Starkville Academy and Hillcrest Christian met on the gridiron Thursday.
Even though the action was pushed back later into the evening, once underway it never slacked as the Volunteers concluded the contest with a 16-0 victory.
Starkville Academy soccer coach Cole Andrews knew for a fact that Thursday's match against Washington School was going to be tough.
