Pleasantville on the other hand returns Quarterback and leading rusher Zeb Adreon, and their top three tacklers on defense including inside linebackers Gunnar Sampson and Sawyer Phillips. Pleasantville Head Coach Gabe Bakker said at the end of the day you can’t worry about the other team too much, you just have to play your game. The Pleasantville vs Colfax-Mingo game is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. tonight, pregame coverage will begin at 6:30 and can be heard live via the KNIA 3 stream on KNIAKRLS.com.
