The Friday Night Football, Comcast Team of the Week is G.W. Long. All the Rebels did was break their sixteen game losing streak, by beating the Elba Tigers. That seems team of the week worthy.
Elba came into the game 3-0, until the Rebels outlasted them. Long scored on a 74-yard run from Dwayne Whigham to get the win. And, this one was a long-time coming!
Long Coach George Kennedy said, "We got some breaks our way. And, for the first time too, when things went against us, we didn't get that oh no here it goes again attitude. The guys stayed positive. We were able to turn some bad things into some positives and were able to win."
Long hopes to run its win streak to two when the rebels pay a visit to Wicksburg Friday night.
