Game preview: Millwood at Jones
Millwood (5-0, 1-0) at Jones (4-1, 1-0)
When: 7:30 p.m. Friday
Where: Jones High School
Last week: Millwood rolled past Luther 60-6 in its district opener. Jones knocked off Morris 29-8 in a district off week.
Why the Falcons could win: The list is long. Earlier this week, I wrote about how well QB Kevonte Richardson has been playing. Brandon Swindall has made as many big plays as anyone around. Larry Seals and Davion Pierson anchor the middle of the defense. And after losing to Jones last year before the ‘Horns had to forfeit, this is a growing rivalry that will provide the Falcons with plenty of motivation.
Why the Longhorns could win: There are a ton of good receivers on the field in this game, and Jones has the one with the most yards this season. Tylor Seabolt has 516 yards and seven TDs for the Longhorns. QB Michael Lowe has thrown for more than 900 yards with 13 touchdowns and just two picks. Jones has thrown a couple of shutouts this season, but no one has been able to stop the Millwood offense so far, so it’ll probably take a team outscoring them to beat them.
Key matchup: Millwood passing game vs. Jones DBs. Though they’ve had big leads in the last four games, Jones has only allowed 111 passing yards per game. So this game pits strength against strength right here. If Jones can slow the Falcon passing attack, it will make the upset easier to pull. But that’s no easy task.
