Paradise Panthers (1-7, 1-2 in District 4-3A Division I) at Brock Eagles (8-0, 3-0 in District 4-3A Division I) Preview
▪ When: 7:30 p.m. Friday
▪ Players to watch: Paradise RB Darian Sotoni, LB Hunter Anthony. Brock: RB Leddy French, DB Kyle Thiel.
▪ Outlook: A Brock win, combined with a Breckenridge win over Boyd clinches another district championship for the Eagles. This is the final home game for the Eagles (pending a postseason game there), and they are 9-0 on their own field since they began University Interscholastic League play last season. In that span they have outscored their opponents by an average of 51-6. Brock RB Tyler Gray has 1,031 yards and 15 TD and French (875 yards, 19 TD) could surpass 1,000 this week. The Brock defense has posted five shutouts this season. While the Eagles are headed for a return to the postseason, the Panthers have just three victories since 2012. Brock won the only meeting, 49-14 last season at Paradise. - Richard Allen
