Merrell is already reviewing film on this Morrison team, which crushed Stroud 41-7 last Saturday night.

"I said last year that that was the biggest Morrison team I’d ever seen, and they’re bigger this year,” Merrell said. "They’ve always been a very physical football team.”

That’s nothing new for the Crusaders, though, who have been outsized in virtually every game they’ve played.

"We’ve gone and competed hard and found ways to make up for that,” Merrell said. "That’s what we’ll have to do Saturday.”

Morrison is used to playing at this time of the year, having won 13 state titles in eight-man football.

CHA isn’t used to playing this deep into the fall. The Christian school playoffs, which CHA won 13 times, usually end in early November.

"Our goal has been to make it to Thanksgiving and have to adjust practices,” Merrell said. "It’s all new to us.”
