BC hosts Chapin, Burnett to start for Airport
Airport hosts Richland-Northeast Friday night and Chapin will be at Brookland-Cayce. BC Head Coach Rusty Charpia said Chapin may be the best 3A team in the state. “They are the best team we’ve played this year,” Charpia said. “They have a lot of good players. He also said based on history the game could be close. “I’ve played them four times and every game has been close,” Charpia said. Charpia said it’s important to keep the game close in the first half. “We have been a second half team,” Charpia said. “Hopefully we get them to the second half.”
Chapin QB Logan Bailey has been drawing lots of attention for his ability. “He’s something special. He can run,” said Charpia. “That’s where he hurts you. He’s a running back who can throw pretty good.”
Airport will play at home versus Richland-Northeast Friday. Airport Assistant Coach Trey Wallace said the Eagles are fortunate to be 3-0. “We did not play that well on defense in the first two games. We gave up a lot of yardage, but we won,” Wallace said. Last week Airport’s defense shut out Lower Richland (RNE) and Wallace said the Airport coaching staff wants to see the trend of good defense continue. Wallace also said not much will change, but QB Brett Burnett is expected to start against RNE. Burnett was hurt in the BC game three weeks ago. He has not played since. Wallace said Burnett will play Friday night.
