757 Showdown Preview: Greenbrier Christian vs. Norfolk Christian

Posted at 1:08 AM, Oct 14, 2016

NORFOLK, Va. - Greenbrier Christian is in a season of change. A program that went 5-5 in 2014, 3-6 in 2015, and is now 0-6, they still have fight in them, even when people think they're out for the count.  "We don't try and do anything by ourselves. we're not trying to be individual players. were trying to be a team and that's really whats keeping us together right now and that's whats going to get us over this hump," says quarterback Luke Bussel.

The Ambassadors, didn't have a chance to get wins last season, or the last two for that matter. With low numbers in interest, Norfolk Christian hasn't fielded a varsity team since 2014. The Ambassadors quickly knocked the cobwebs off and are sitting at 4-2 on the season. The players feel like they haven't lost a step, mainly because they were hungry to show why they deserved to be playing on Friday nights. "When you go all week for a whole summer working out, getting sweaty with the guys, putting in work with fundraisers, doing things that nobody else is doing, and you have a group of people who are buying in and believing. and then outside of that you have a bunch of people who don't believe in you. It's something about pressure, that makes people come together," says running back Albert Reid.

Kickoff is at 7 p.m. and News 3 Sports' Mitch Brown will be live starting on News 3 at 4 previewing the 757 Showdown.
