The Eagles are coming off a 35-13 win over Model, while the Tigers were idle last week.
Adairsville coach Jim Kremer said he and his coaching staff tried to keep players "hit ready," as the varsity team also got to watch its junior varsity counterpart stay unbeaten with a win over Sonoraville last week.
"We had a good off-week last week," Kremer said. "It really wasn't an off-week. ... It's been a good week and a half, and I feel like we've made some strides."
In the Tigers' last game on Sept. 17, a 49-28 win at East Hall, Adairsville showed some of the progress it's made since losing its first two games of the season to Ridgeland and Dade County.
"We cut mistakes down the last two ballgames and have had a lot of offense," said Kremer, whose Tigers have had 450-plus yards of offense in consecutive games, including a 35-7 win at Sonoraville on Sept. 10. "We have shown sparks to move the football against everybody."
Coosa itself has shown offensive proficiency, most recently in last week's game, but coach Chad Perry knows that won't matter much for today's game.
"Yes, winning three in a row has definitely given us a shot in the arm," said Perry, whose team lost to Starr's Mill and Gordon Central before reeling off wins against North Murray, Heard County and the Blue Devils last Friday in its sub-region opener.
"We don't look in the past, we try to look at our next (game)," Perry added.
The Coosa coach knows that next game will come against a team he said has better overall speed than the Eagles, even though he acknowledged some speed in his team's defensive ranks.
"Coach Kremer is doing a tremendous job. He's got a veteran staff," Perry said. "Those guys definitely have got the Adairsville program headed in the right direction."
"It may come down to one of those games where you don't beat yourself," he continued. "Their quarterback (Cody Kremer) obviously makes great decisions with the football."
"Cody has matured along the way and has gotten better every week," Jim Kremer said of his team's signal-caller.
"Our offensive line, their assignments are coming together and they are making some holes for our running backs," he added of his offense, which helped senior back Bradford Austin rush for 192 yards and three scores in its last game. "No one has really stopped us per say. We have shot ourselves in the foot."
The Tigers will need to avoid those type of self-inflicted wounds against a formidable Coosa team.
"They run a very good Wing-T offense. They run multiple sets," Kremer said. "They don't miss hardly any blocking assignments. It seems like they handle just about everything you can throw at 'em."
The Eagles, he said, have a couple of fast backs, a good receiver and a game manager at QB.
"Our kids are playing pretty solid football," Perry said. "We're gonna have to play good fundamental football and guess right every now and then."
Kremer, who doesn't expect much rust from his team following some high-tempo practices, knows his team will need to protect the ball for a chance at a win.
"We're probably four or five plays away from being 4-0," he said. "If we can just keep the mistakes minimal ... we're gonna have our chance to win our share of games the remaining part of the season."
Adairsville (2-2, 0-0) and Coosa (3-2, 1-0) kick off at 7:30 p.m. today.
