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 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.

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

This edition of the Friday Night Lights High School Football Game of the Week features Millbrook (1-0) travelling to Warren County (0-1).

The two teams have not played since 2013 and have split the all time series 3-3.

Millbrook’s season debut saw an incredible rushing attack pile up nearly 400 yards without attempting a pass against Harrisonburg.

Junior running back Kyler Jackson made his varsity debut with 5 carries for 182 yards and 4 touchdowns.

Millbrook ran away with a 40-0 victory after pulling the starters in the second half.

The Pioneers will have a tougher test this week against a Warren County team coming off a strong season last year.

Warren County struggled finishing drives but in my discussion with Head Coach Josh Breeden, he did not seem too concerned about it.

He felt they just had a few things to clear up, and he is confident his squad will have better execution on Friday.

New QB PJ Dellinger and RB Gavin Dodson were the main contributors on offense while Dodson scored the lone TD for Warren County on a pick six.

Warren County’s defense responded well after an opening drive touchdown and did not allow a score in the second half

The defense will face a familiar formation when they see Millbrook’s single wing offense.

The Wildcats ran the same formation the past few seasons under Coach Jerry Sarchet.

When Warren County is on offense, keep an eye on the battle between the Wildcat’s offensive line led by four seniors against the Millbrook defensive line which features All-District selections Cole Purdy (6’3″ 250) and Ezra Doyle-Naegeli (6’0″ 245).

This game will truly be decided in the trenches as the skill positions look very even.

I predict Millbrook will win the battle up front as they dominated the line of scrimmage last week and come away with the victory, 27-14.

Tune in to the action on Fox Sports Radio 1450 WFTR, The River 95.3, streaming on and the Tune In Radio App.
