(WIAT) — Our High School Football Game of the Week is going to determine Region 6 of 5A as undefeated Mortimer Jordan takes on Hayden, whom is also undefeated.
In region play, both teams are 5-0 and the winner is going to get a very good seed come playoff time. Mortimer Jordan is the reigning state runner-up, so they have experience on the big stage.
Hayden has no such luck, as last year was their first winning season since 2004. The Wildcats’ ability to deal with the nerves on the road will make all the difference.
Their head coach has a plan on how to deal with the pressure.
“Don’t get focused on hype or the scoreboard, just play each play and try to win each play, and keep focused on what we are trying to accomplish,” said Keith Register, Hayden’s head coach.
