Coverage Breakdown: Petal @ Hattiesburg
Players To Watch
Stephon Huderson-Arguably the best true running back in the state. Can win hurt defenses with his legs and his pass catching.
Charlie Marlow- Marlow has great range for a defender. He can lock down sideline to sideline and also blitz off of the edge casuing major disruptions.
Xavier Yancy- Sensational athlete that can play a number of positions.
Julian Conner-Leader of the offense. Distributes the ball to his playmakers very well.
Fabian Franklin- Top back in the state for the Class of 2018.
Jordan Murphy- As athletic as they get at the wider receiver position.
Keys To The Game
Petal will rely on Huderson’s ground game but will need production out of quarterbacks Tanner Estill and Jordan Wilson to counter what Tigers’ QB Julian Conner will be doing.
While the Hattiesburg offense is loaded, it will be their defense that will have to get a stop and force turnovers to keep this one from becoming a shoot out.
With chances that this one will mainly be a battle won in the trenches, who wins may come down to which set of running backs can protect the football.
Xavier Yancy: Once a star for Hattiesburg, Yancy now wears the Petal Red & Black.
