Coverage Breakdown: Petal @ Hattiesburg

Players To Watch

Petal Panthers

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.

Hattiesburg Tigers

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.
