Friday Night Fever Game of the Week Preview - Arnold vs Mosley

For week six of high school football, our Friday Night Fever Game of the Week centers around one of the area’s most fierce rivalries: Arnold vs Mosley.

It's Arnold who holds the current bragging rights – they've won two years in a row, including a 20-19 win last year on a gutsy walk-off two point conversion.

The Dolphins are desperate to get the win back this year.

They're coming into the game with a record of 3-2, but reeling from two straight losses in road games in Pensacola.

Arnold is 2-2 on the year, and coming off a bye week into this game.

Perhaps the biggest thing is the winner of this game gets a huge leg up, and is the probable winner of the county title.

Seniors from both schools want to go out with a win against their biggest rival, and explain just what this game means to the players and students involved.

"It's not a pretty relationship, that's for sure,” Arnold’s Dylan Gandy says, “Off the field, we're alright. We mind our own business. But once you're on the field, the whole atmosphere changes. I mean, a big rivalry with so much on the line."

"We're the two best teams in Bay County,” Mosley’s Geoffrey Lancaster adds, “We look at it as we have to get through each other. We grew up playing with each other. We've got a couple guys that are there, and we're trying to make them regret it."

"It's definitely something crazy,” according to Arnold’s Jarrett Dutton, “It's a rivalry like no other in the county. When you get on the field it's kind of like war, it's like a battlefield out there. Everyone goes 110% every play, just because nobody wants to live with that loss for a year."

"We've just to stay focused up as a team,” Mosley’s Nari Masslieno says, “I feel like Arnold having that bye week to have extra practice for us isn't going to work for them. I feel like we're going to come out, be nasty, and play better than them, just come out and get the W."
