Coverage Breakdown: Pontotoc @ North Pontotoc
Players To Watch
Pontotoc Warriors (4-0)
Jacob Carter- Carter is getting the job done for the Warriors on offense. He has been nearly perfect this season throwing the football. He will have another tough secondary to go against tonight.
Gabe Harmon- Harmon is rushing for well over 100-yards per game this season and is doing it by running away from, around and over defenders. He is the perfect complement to the Warrior passing attack.
Brandon Hale- The team leader in tackles and celebratory selfie videos will have his hands full chasing down playmakers from NP.
Dawson Ruth- The veteran full back has been MIA thus far this season but may return tonight adding another key element to an explosive offense.
North Pontotoc Vikings (3-1)
Clark Mills- The consistent force at quarterback has helped the Vikings get to a 3-1 record. He has thrown 12 touchdowns to just two interceptions. He will need to light it up tonight to keep pace with Pontotoc.
Zay Cullens- Cullens can do a little bit of everything. He is the team’s leading rusher and is locking down things in the secondary as well. Offensively he can take it to the house on any given play. Defensively he is capable of making things difficult for Pontotoc’s passing attack.
Tanner Turk- Turk has been a favorite target of Mills this season and has big play capabilities. If Pontotoc worries too much with Cullens, Turk will beat them deep.
Jaylon Simpson- Simpson can provide a solid pass rush for the Viking defense and tonight, more than ever, they will need it.
Keys to the Game
North Pontotoc cannot allow the Warrior train to leave the station. Is Carter gets hot early, look out!
Pontotoc needs to lime their mistakes and eliminate giving up big plays.
It is a rivalry game so if it is close in the end it will come down to who wants it more.
Austin Morphis- Morphis rarely comes off of the field. Chances are, he will have an opportunity to impact this fame on one side of the ball or the other.
