Interim George Penree commented on the team's preparation the Greenville match. 

"Right now, we are kind of coming into our own on D and coming off a good performance and it'll be a chance to respond against a rushing attack which is pretty formidable."

Junior defensive back Will Halloran notes how the team has grown in skill and execution since the beginning of the season. 

"Especially against Northwestern, we played [the] lights out and had a ton of three and outs and the linebackers are filling holes and the defensive backs we are covering everything up on the back end, so it has been fun to be a part of."

The Saints have won the last seven matches against Greenvile. Last time they played Greenville for homecoming CSS defeated the Panthers in 2012 45-3.

The homecoming game commences Saturday at 6 P.M. at Public Schools Stadium.
