Game of the Week

 

King (6-1) vs North Shore (7-1)

 

Game preview: This will be one interesting battle between two very talented teams. King features a two-headed monster out of the backfield in senior running backs Jerrell Wimbley and D’Koreion Hammond. Both combing over 1600 yards this season ( Jerrel with 1,197 and Hammond with 573) on the ground the season and are led by a very well-run offensive line.

North Shore doesn’t really need any introduction as they walk into this one favored and feature many talented players on both sides of the ball. They walk into this game being first in the district and are led by some very special players like quarterback Wyndell Mitchell jr. who has been very consistent this season on offense spreading the ball around to a wealth of talent.

Defensively North Shore is one of the best if not the best in the state, with too many high-profile names to mention. King has their work cut out for them and it will be interesting to see who comes out on top on this one.
