The Duke’s Preview: Central vs Page County featuring Coach Mike Yew

Central (8-0) hosts Page County (1-7) for their Senior Night in the penultimate regular season High School Football Game of the Week on The River 95.3, Fox Sports Radio 1450 WFTR, theriver953.com and the Tune In Radio App.

Central has continued their great success from last season which ended in a State Championship game appearance into an undefeated regular season so far this season.

They have used the same formula including a bruising rushing attack led by an experienced offensive line and a battering ram at running back, senior Tyler Forbes.

Forbes leads all area rushers in Region 2B with 1,172 yards and 19 touchdowns.

The Central defense has remained stout all season long, allowing only 7.8 ppg with only two opponents scoring more than once all season.

Page County and Coach James May continue to try to build up their program and the offense has been able to produce points at times.

Quarterback Hunter Petit has been dangerous on the ground and in the air.

Last week against Madison County, he had a passing touchdown and a highlight 51 yard touchdown run.

He has two young weapons that he has formed a great connection with including tight end Isaac Foltz and wide receiver Dawson Richards, both of who are sophomores.

Defensively, Page County has struggled, allowing 46.6 points per game and 69 points last week against Madison County.

Central will need to avoid looking ahead to a potential, de-facto Bull Run District Championship Game against Strasburg.

The Falcons should be able to stay focused on their game plan and get the win due to their experience and control over the line of scrimmage, 56-8.
