"He sets our line calls and he's usually getting a fullback or someone else redirected and lined up correctly. He's definitely a great leader and when he leaves it will be tough to replace him, but hopefully we still have three more games left with him."
Daugherty doesn't know everything about the Big Blacks, but he has seen enough of them on film to be impressed with what he's seen.
"They don't make very many mistakes and they run the ball very, very well," Daugherty said. "You worry about them not shooting themselves in the foot and just grinding out first downs and defensively they run to the ball really well and they tackle well when they get there.
"Overall, they're a very well coached and disciplined team that doesn't make many mistakes."
Point is led on the ground by sophomore back Cody Mitchell, who tallied 142 yards and a touchdown in the Big Blacks' opening round win over Logan last weekend.
Speedy, senior back Chase Walton added 124 yards and two rushing scores last weekend, while pulling in three passes, including a touchdown.
Junior quarterback Aden Yates controls Point's offense with a strong arm, while presenting a running threat.
"We're going to have to play as close to mistake-free football as we can," Daugherty said. "We'd been good all year at not having too many penalties, but we had a couple too many last week. If we get into a very tight game with a very, disciplined team, we might not be able to get out of that if we make too many mistakes.
"We've got to limit mistakes and just do what we do and try not to waste possessions. We've done a good job of that, so hopefully that will continue Friday night."
