Ray Perkins excited for challenge East Mississippi presents

The 4th ranked JCJC Bobcats are one win away from a state championship, but standing in their way is the number one in the MACJC, East Mississippi.

The Lions are number one in total offense and are tops in passing and rushing defense across the board.

The Bobcats meanwhile come into the game with second-ranked offensive attack to go along with the seventh best defense.

Head coach Ray Perkins spoke about how exciting it is to face such a tough opponent.

"It's a pleasure for us to play a team of their caliber and to establish or try to establish ourselves in a likeness. I think we're a pretty good football team so we'll have plenty of opportunity to try to prove that."

Kickoff is set for 2 p.m. at Sullivan-Windham field in Scooba.
