Both teams enter the game with 0-2 record. The Patriots lost 83-34 to Nashville this past weekend.
“Massac County had three, 70-yard touchdown runs,” A-J head football coach Brett Detering said after viewing the game film. “They gave up a lot of points, but they have big play capabilities.”
Running in the backfield for Massac County are seniors David Thompson and Dawson Troutman, and junior Devin Scott.
Quarterbacking Massac County is senior Bruce Neill.
Some of the top offensive linemen are seniors Lance Reed and Mason Search and junior Austin Perjenski.

“It’s a tough match up,” Detering said. “Hopefully, we can stay away from giving up the big play and our kids are ready to play.”
