Darius Philon big in Vigor win
"I just went out there on Friday night and played to the best of my ability," said Darius Philon. "I am not sure how many tackles I had in the game. I know I had at least one sack that was for a pretty big loss.
"When we do everything right things are going great for us. Our defense is playing as one unit. We knew we had to try to hold them [Hueytown] to 14 points or less. We did a great job of doing that. They have been putting up big yards every week and scoring a lot of points all year. We shut them down."
The Vigor defense is stout with ends Darius Philon and Arkansas bound Jamichael Winston. They also have Kentucky bound defensive back Jacoby Glenn. The Wolves have an impressive group hoping to add another state title. They face undefeated Hartselle Thursday night at 7:00 p.m.
"We play every game like it's our last," Philon said. "This week it's the championship, so we know it's the last game. We have to play harder than ever before. We played against the best quarterback in the country last week [Jameis Winston], and we stopped him. We have to do our best to make sure we shut down their offense too."
Philon enjoyed Alabama's 42-14 win against Auburn.
"There was no doubt who was going to win that game," he said. "They played really good. Alabama's defense is great."
