When: 7:30 p.m., Friday
Where: Tornado Bowl
Last week: Heritage Hall 30, Casady 22; Lawton MacArthur 31, Clinton 13
Players to watch: Heritage Hall — Connor McGinnis, QB. The junior accounted for more than 400 total yards last week, but now he faces a pretty potent defense in Clinton at the historic Tornado Bowl. It’ll be a different atmosphere that could present problems for a young player.
Clinton — Marquiz Simpkins, RB. The junior standout struggled to stay on the field last week due to hydration issues. If he stays on the field, Clinton is clearly a better team.
Storylines: Heritage Hall — The Chargers’ main storyline in the offseason was finding an offensive line. The line will need to protect McGinnis against Clinton’s aggressive front in order to have any success.
Clinton — Keep Simpkins on the field. It sounds simple, I know. Last week’s game would have been closer had he been able to remain on the field and be effective.
The pick: Clinton 31, Heritage Hall 24
