Game details: Sept. 11 (Friday), 7:30 PM, Central High School
Coach: Ty Scroggins
Last year: 10-5; lost to Belfry in Class 3A State Championship
Player to watch: Senior QB Myron Norfleet will lead the Yellowjacket offense when they take on your Tigers Friday night. Norfleet only threw for 93 yards in Central’s first two games, but he does lead the team in rushing. Norfleet has run for 119 yards on 18 attempts in Central’s first two games of the season. Stopping the run will be the key to the game with junior Cory Johnson also in the backfield for the Yellowjackets.
Season vibe: The Yellowjackets lost their first two games of the season to Knox Central and DuPont Manual before defeating Christian Academy 28-21 last week. Central went to the Class 3A State Championship last year, but they haven’t shown much these first couple of weeks. Although they are the underdog Friday night, they will be scrappy and trying desperately to get a big win.
