“We finally have everybody healthy and are playing good football at the right time,” Jones said. “Linden is very big so we hope to go fast on offense so they will get tired quick. We are playing with a lot of confidence right now and that is going to go a long way for us.  I hope we play some good football and give a lot of effort and hopefully the score will be in our favor at the end of the game.”
