ArkansasVarsity.com/KATV GOTW Cabotvs Conway- September 24th

Cabot

Last Week: 28-10 loss to Springdale Har-Ber

Key Players: QB Zach Craig, FB Spencer Smith, HB Jeremy Berry, HB Austin Alley, G Nathan Cash, G Tyler Tarant, DT Jared Dumais, LB Riley Hawkins, S Logan Spry

Key Factor: For Cabot to have success against Conway they must find a way to limit the big play for the Wampus Cats. The Panthers have been prone to giving up big plays this season when playing against passing teams (Pulaski Academy and Har-Ber). If they can force Conway to earn their touchdowns with long, drawn out drives Cabot can keep
themselves in the ballgame.

Conway

Last Week: 34-14 victory over Rogers Heritage

Key Players: Key Players: QB Tyler Langley, RB Jamarkus Harmon, WR Tristan Eddings, WR Jalen Jones, WR Desmond Cox, DE Marquez Massey, LB Darian Hill, and DB Hunter Moix

Key Factor: Conway needs to continue to do what's worked for them so far this season, try to exploit the undermanned Cabot defense with the long ball. Conway has been a quick strike team all season jumping out to big halftime leads then cruising in the second half. The Wampus Cats skill players on the edge give them a huge advantage over a young Panther secondary, Conway must take advantage of it.

Kyle O'Neal's Pick: Conway by 14 | Luke Matheson's Pick: Conway by 14

Pulaski AcademyvsPulaski Oak Grove- September 24th

Pulaski Academy

Last Week: 41-24 victory over Lake Hamilton

Key Players: QB Fredi Knighten, RB Greyson Skokos, WR Garrett Lamb, WR Zac Reyna, WR L.J. Wallace, G Matt Kolb, G Jason King, NT Dirk Tanner, FS Aum'Arie Wallace

Key Factor: The Bruins have now settled on Knighten as their starting QB, which is a good decision by Coach Kelley considering he's the sparkplug for that offense. Kelley will have to find ways to use Knighten's athletic abilities both inside and outside the pocket. Knighten has scored in just about every capacity one can so far this season and his versatility will be key for the Bruins against a very athletic Oak Grove team.

Pulaski Oak Grove

Last Week: 52-21 victory over LR Fair

Key Players: QB/S Trooper Tolbert, RB/WR Devontae Malone, G Kevin Buchan, T Ryan Elkins, LB/RB Eric Park, LB/RB James Burkes, LB Vernon Hall

Key Factor: The Hornets have to keep pace with the Bruins in this game. Pulaski Oak Grove can ill-afford to fall behind by more than a score to Pulaski Academy because the Bruins have the ability to keep pouring it on. The Hornets can certainly score points, they've score 136 combined in their first three games, but they'll need at least 35 on Friday night to stay in the game with PA.

Kyle O'Neal's Pick: Pulaski Academyby20 | Luke Matheson's Pick: Pulaski Academyby 28

Des ArcvsHazen - September 24th

Des Arc

Last Week: 8-6 loss to Harding Academy

Key Players: QB Justin Hollis, RB/DB Cody Robinson, WR Carl Weaver, OL Shaq Mosby, OL Stephen Wiggs, DT Hunter Hambrick, S Luke Devorak

Key Factor: Des Arc must find consistency on offense. Against their better competition, the Eagles have only scored a total of 20 points (14 against Parkers Chapel, 6 against Harding Academy) and they lost both games. They exploded for 52 against Brinkley however, so there is offensive firepower they just have to find it every week. Six points won't cut it this week against a Hazen team that averages almost 41 points per game.

Hazen

Last Week: 42-12 victory over McCrory

Key Players: QB Devin Bonds, RB Matt Tenison, RB Marcus Smith, WR Alex Thompson, WR Tyler Holmes, DE Andrew Sayger, S Demonte Anderson

Key Factor: The Hornets need to sustain the momentum heading into conference play this season, much like they did last year. In 2009 Hazen started 3-0 then reeled off nine straight before losing in the quarter-finals to Spring Hill. Des Arc has been a stumbling block for the Hornets in years past. Hazen has a 5-5 record against the Eagles this past decade, but only a 1-4 record against them over the last five seasons.

Kyle O'Neal's Pick: Hazenby12 | Luke Matheson's Pick: Hazen by 14
