“Let’s hope it’s not a shootout but it could be because their offense has evolved,” Kirschner said. “They have a two QB rotation. One is a better runner, one a better thrower. That presents a problem for our defense because it’s a different scheme.”
Luckily, the Giants will have their home crowd and, as opposed to last year, experienced starters, when they battle it out with Carmel.
“Win a championship; that’s what we told them (Friday) night,” Kirschner said. “Go win it. Last year we were in the same boat and had so many young kids that were instrumental to our success. It’s a matter of how focused they want to be. We worked all winter, spring and summer to win a championship and they’ll have that opportunity next week.”
