Week 5 High School Football Preview
Check out our game previews for this week!
Tioga is on the road at South Beauregard with a 3-0 record. Antonio Logan showed a glimpse of his play from last season last week, rushing for 143 yards and 2 touchdowns. Also, Blake McGehee threw for 227 yards and 4 touchdowns. With those two in action again this week, It will be tough for the Knights defense to stop them.
As for the Pickering Red Devils, their offense came out firing against Grant last week-scoring on its first three possessions and two of them from running back Marlon Freeney who finished with 194 yards and 3 touchdowns. Pickering is at home tomorrow night, so that should give them an advantage. Their main challenge will just be trying to stop Lake Arthur’s running back, Torrell Levias. If the Red Devils’ offense and defense can come out equally ready, they have a shot at winning.
Montgomery will be at home hosting Bossier. With JT Turner connecting with Mikel Auge all last Friday night, it led him to finish with almost 250 yards rushing for 15 carries and 2 touchdowns himself. The bears should maintain a strong offense this week to beat Bossier.
Last week’s game of the week proved that ASH is still at the top of the throne of Alexandria. Junior quarterback, Judd Barton, threw five first-half touchdown passes. It’s also homecoming for the Trojans, so facing a 1-3 team at the rate they are going won’t be much competition, along with their unstoppable receivers like Bud Clark and Derrald Moore Jr.
The Marksville Tigers are at home against Crowley. As an undefeated team, Coach Dunbar is making sure they continue to make a statement in Class 3A. Daniel Miller, a former Athlete of the Week, continues to put up numbers, after rushing for almost 200 yards and 4 touchdowns. With their offense clicking and Gavin Laird leading on defense, this team will be a hard team to beat.
For the Mustangs, they are looking for another win this weekend having to face Lakeview at home considering both teams are carrying a 3-1 record. Last week, their offense was led by Donnel Carter, another former Athlete of the Week, who rushed for 159 yards for 25 carries and 4 touchdowns. Their defense, on the other hand, forced 3 fumbles out of Winnfield. If both sides of the ball can keep this up, they should be okay this week against the Gators.
Rosepine is also at home against Jonesboro-Hodge with a 1-3 record. On offense, Ethan Frey, who went 13 of 22 or 150 yards and one touchdown last week, hopes to connect with Josh Cummings all night. On defense, with Hunter Herriman making eight tackles last week, hopefully, the Eagles can make a statement on both sides of the ball to produce another win.
As for the Wampus Cats, they are at home taking on Dequincy, and Quan Williams will be the key to their success. Williams had a pair of interceptions that helped Leesville get their last win. With Jacob Mount at quarterback, Darius Sawyer at receiver and the Gallashaw bothers at running back, this offense will be one hard line to stop. Last year, this team went undefeated at home, so this year, they expect to bring the same results.
Holy Savior Menard will be hosting Many. Last year, Menard lost to Many in district play, but this year Menard is going into this game with a different mindset. They are walking in with a 3-1 record, but most of all, they have a defensive back and wide receiver in Dru Scully who’s locking people down and putting up numbers. Now for Many, the key to their offense is Terrence Williams, who finished last week’s game with 189 yards and five touchdowns. We will see who comes out on top between the two.
