Kelly says the team will take the next two weeks to prepare for the game.
“We will breakdown their offense and defense, find a way to use our strengths and make them play our game, our style of football,” said Kelly. “I will also look into throwing some new plays – wrinkles in, just in the event we need to use them.”
According to the website, SCJAAF is the largest youth football conference in Southern California. The organization is a 7 on 7 passing league – a non-contact way to play football on a 40-yard field plus 10 yard end zone that allows scoring both on the offense and defense.
