|Vidaila visits Pearl River|
Vidalia High has the tough test of stopping one of the top running backs in Louisiana as the Vikings travel to Pearl River Thursday.
The game was moved up a day because Pearl River is out of school Friday.
James Gillum, who is the Times-Picayune Preseason Player of the Year, rushed for 346 yards and six touchdowns in the Rebels 48-46 lost to Bogalusa last week.
"There were more than 1,000 yards of offense between both teams in that game," Faircloth said. "We've got a tough task trying to slow them down. We have to try and control the ball and keep it away from Gillum. He can flat-out fly."
Pearl River head coach Joe Harris said Gillum has 5,000 career rushing yards and is closing in on the school all-time rushing record.
"He's a good one and is a definite college football player," said Harris, adding Gillum has received scholarship offers from Louisiana-Lafayette, Arkansas State, Northern Illinois, McNeese and Southeastern Louisiana, and has been invited to visit Mississippi State.
"Our team is similar to Vidalia in that we both like to run the ball," Harris said. "They have good size, a big tall receiver (Gary Stewart) and some good running backs."
Rumeal Morris accounted for more than 500 yards as Bogalusa (2-3) held off Pearl River (3-2) 48-46 in a non-district game Thursday at Bogalusa.
Morris passed for 421 yards and ran for 113 to go along with three touchdowns and three two-point conversion runs. He also made a key interception that killed a potential game winning drive by the Rebels.
Gillum had given Pearl River a 40-36 lead by scoring his fifth touchdown on a 1-yard run.Pearl River scored on its first three possessions - a 1-yard run by Conravey, and two more touchdowns by Gillum on runs of 7 and 42 yards.
