The Weevil State University Fightin' Weevils will be taking on the Monks of Minot [North Dakota] Jesuit Seminary on Saturday at Weevil Field
. Kickoff is scheduled for 11:30 a.m.
Coach Bull Winston says he has been pleased with practices this week, "I have been pleased," he said. Offensive Coordinator Red Winston will be using a variation of the single wing which was used during the first game of the season against Moore's Bridge Barber College to such devastating effect. "I figure if we can score some points, and the other side don't, we should be okay," said Coach [Red] Winston.
Quarterback D'Wontavius Jackson has been working hard all week on fumble recoveries and throwing the ball. Quarterbacks Coach Sonny Winston says, "Yeah, he can throw it a real long ways, and we haven't done no whole lot of throwing this year, since his hands is so little and all. But we're going to throw it some Saturday."
Coach Hick Winston's defensive squad will continue to build on their past success in the game against the Central North Community College Peccaries this past weekend. "I got one of them boys to show me that Madden Football game, and there's really some good stuff in there," he said. "I think we might do some of that blitzing and we might not. It's still up in the air." He did note that the Monks do seem to have trouble breaking huddle, and their quarterback has been flagged countless times for delay of game while standing under center. "I don't know why that might be," said Coach [Hick] Winston, "but it might be something we can capitalize on. Or not."
Nose guard Lucius Roosevelt, a junior majoring in Hotel and Motel Artwork Acquisition from Luverne, Alabama, is excited about hosting the Monks. "I am very excited," he said.
Special Teams coach Rory Winston is pleased with the kicking game. "I am real pleased with the kicking game," he said. "We are averaging about 30 yards per punt, which I think is pretty good." Freshman punter Czrmladc Buteriskavianiesta from the Czech Republic has been mastering both a new language and a new skill, coming as he does, from a background in quoits. "Is hard, no? I no understand and wish going home now."
Weevil State University is currently third place in the Great South USA American South Conference, and will play Miskatonic University
next week in Arkham, Massachusetts. The next Great South USA American South Conference game will be on October 11, when the Weevils are again home against Bay Minette A&M.
