“Dixie is a lot like us,” said Winnsboro coach Don Addis. “They are inexperienced at key positions. We’re both 0-4 so someone is going to be happy Friday night. It will be a challenge for us becuase they run the double wing offense very well. Hopefully, we’ll prepare well this week and be ready to play the game. We do have a couple of injuries that may limit playing time for a few of our guys.”
