The Duke’s Preview: Warren County vs Clarke County featuring Coach Breeden

This week’s Friday Night Game of the Week on Fox Sports Radio 1450, The River 95.3 and streaming at theriver953.com and the Tune In Radio App features Clarke County (3-0) hosting Warren County (0-2), two team’s trending in opposite directions.

There is still plenty of time for Head Coach Josh Breeden’s Wildcats to turn things around and they have showed some bright spots.

Sr. Sully Zewar has looked strong at wide receiver, a position featured much more in the new spread offense.

Sr. QB PJ Dellinger has showed confidence at quarterback, his first year in the position.

Before the bye week, Millbrook applied a lot of pressure on Dellinger, but he stayed calm and confident in the pocket throughout the game.

The early bye week could help Warren County get their offense back on track, as they are still scoreless in the second half of their first two games.

Clarke County looks to be back in their usual form as a power in Class 2.

They have destroyed their opponents through the first three games averaging 38.7 points per game and allowing just 6.7 points per game.

Clarke County relies on a balanced rushing attack with a number of ball carriers who carry the ball efficiently.

The entire offensive line returned from last season and features four seniors.

They helped lead the Eagles to 305 yards on the ground against Buffalo Gap last week.

Warren County’s bye week and recent experience against Millbrook’s single wing offense could help the Wildcats keep it close early, but Clarke County’s rushing attack may be too much, Eagles 34- Wildcats 16.
