PC-Lawton Ike preview capsule
Lawton Eisenhower at Putnam City
When: 7:30 tonight
Where: Putnam City Stadium (map)
Why Ike could win: The two-QB combination presents a unique run-pass threat, and though it can be predictable at times, it can be effective, too. Lawton Ike will be able to neutralize Putnam City’s speed, especially at receiver. But most importantly, the Eagles are big and physical, a combo that has caused problems for the Pirates this year.
Why Putnam City could win: Though the Pirates are 1-3, they’ve only been blown out once. They went double-OT with Westmoore and had the ball down by seven in the fourth quarter against PC North. There’s talent on this team, and they’re trying to get all the pieces together. The secondary, which had some struggles at times the first three games, seemed to come together last week.
Quote: “I feel like we can face anything. I think we’re ready; we’ve just got to put it together, come together as a team. I feel like that’s really important for me as a leader.” – PC safety Devon Bruner
Key matchup: PC running backs vs. Ike defensive front. Nothing goes well for the Pirates if the run game struggles, and that includes the use of the RBs on screen passes. Josh Stanley seems to be a spark with his move from receiver to running back, but it’s yet to be seen if that will be enough to divert defenses’ attention away from QB Caleb Lee.
The pick: PC 24-21. After the way the last three weeks have gone, the Pirates are in line for a few good breaks.
