NEWBERN &8212; This week Sunshine High School&8217;s football team has not looked at implementing new plays or changing around formations as they look toward their first round playoff game against Brantley High School. Instead, the group has focused on perfecting everything they have learned this year up to now &8212; perfecting to the point of mistake free ball.

Jenkins said the Brantley team the Tigers will face off with tonight isn&8217;t the best team out of Brantley he has faced before, but he said they have found a way to win all but one game this season. And he said they have done it without the glitz and glam the team normally brings.

Jenkins said his group is out-matched, however, when it comes to experience. He said he is fielding a relatively young team as opposed to the Brantley team with a number of seniors starting.

Jenkins said the key to a first-round road win for his team is an early lead to feed off of for the rest of the game. From there he said it all depends on no turnovers &8212; playing what the Tigers play perfect.
