Week 7 features several big matchups on the high school gridirons. PrepXtra’s Chris Thomas previews a few of those in the video above.
Christian Academy of Knoxville (6-0) hosts Loudon (2-3) in the PrepXtra Game of the Week on 10News2 Friday at 7:30 p.m. The Redskins will have their hands full with a stacked Warriors offense. CAK quarterback Cole Smith has recorded over 1,500 passing yards and only two interceptions this year. Warriors’ tight end and UT commit Austin Pope and wide receiver Phillip Nichols look to give the Warriors offense an edge in this one to keep CAK undefeated.
Campbell County (4-2) will head south to face a highly talented Farragut team (5-0). The Admiral offense has been explosive so far this season thanks to the quarterback play by Jacob Naumoff and the explosive running game in Tanner Thomas. The strength up front from defensive end and University of Tennessee at Chattanooga commit Cole Strange will be essential to stop Campbell County quarterback Josh Lay in the air and on the ground.
The rivalry matchup between Halls (2-3) and Gibbs (3-3) features two teams knotted up at 1-1 in region play. The Eagles will use speedy running back Desanta Smith to establish an early run game against a tough Gibbs defense. The Eagles look to extend their two-game winning streak over the Red Devils.
You can see highlights from these games Friday night at 11:15 on PrepXtra on WBIR.
