But, the Rebels have former Jackson Academy standout Kinkead Dent on the bench that could possibly get some snaps with three games left on the schedule.

Matt Luke was asked about Dent Monday.

“We are focused on trying to win the game,” Luke said in his weekly press conference. “If some situations present themselves, we’ll look at trying to play people. But again, our focus is on winning the football game.”

“I think our guys are hungry to go get better. I think that is the unique part about this team. They keep fighting and competing and working to get better each and every week. They’ll continue to do that. We have three games left that are promised to us.”
