Flucos ready for first playoff appearance since 2000

PALMYRA, Va. (CBS19 SPORTS) -- Throughout Fluvanna County's breakthrough season has been the ability to grind it out against anyone and after a couple disappointing losses to end the season they are looking to get back to their ways.

"There's no team that's better than us," junior defensive end Eli Hartzog said, "So when I look at another team they're out equal, so when we play them there the same as us and we can beat ourselves or we can lose to ourselves, so it's up to that basically."

The Flucos are set to make their first playoff appearance since 2000 after going 6-4 as they go on the road to play Brookville Friday at 7 p.m. at Amherst County High School. Even in losses this season the Flucos have kept games close, such as a 35-7 loss to Louisa County where Fluvanna was tied 7-7 at halftime.

"If we play that way every week we can beat anybody that we're going to play in the playoffs, but you got to limit the turnovers," Head Coach Michael Morris said, "Turnovers have kind of have kind of killed us the last few weeks."

Heading into the playoffs the Flucos believe if they can hold onto the ball they can compete with any given team.

"Without the turnovers, I think we could have come up with a win," freshman quarterback Kobe Edmonds said, "But coming to practice, work harder, hold the ball tighter, just do what we got to do."
