The Duke’s Preview: Sherando vs Millbrook featuring Sherando Coach T.J. Rohrbaugh
Tonight’s Game of the Week on The River 95.3, Fox Sports Radio 1450, theriver953.com and the Tune In Radio App will feature a contrast of styles when Sherando (5-3) travels to Millbrook (5-2).
This game comes at a crucial stretch in the season as teams are jockeying for playoff positioning.
In the recent VHSL Power Rankings, Millbrook was ranked third and Sherando fifth, with the top eight teams making the postseason.
The Warriors deploy an offense led by a talented and experienced quarterback, Micah Carlson.
Carlson leads the area in passing with 1,481 passing yards, a 59% completion parentage, and 15 touchdowns.
He will spread the ball around to a variety of receivers including the speedster, Brady Hamilton.
Hamilton leads the area in receiving yards (541), receiving touchdowns (7), and receptions (26).
Millbrook on the other hand would be completely content without attempting a pass the entire game.
The single wing offense has dominated games with its rushing attack totaling 360 yards per game.
Kyler Jackson has led the backfield and the area this year with 1,083 rushing yards and 17 touchdowns.
The Pioneers recently got Tyson Mallory back from injury after he led the area in rushing last season.
On the sidelines, Sherando Head Coach T.J. Rohrbaugh makes his return to Millbrook where he briefly served as the Coordinator of Student Activities.
In his role, he worked closely with Millbrook Head Coach Josh Haymore and the two share a mutual respect heading into this rivalry game.
Millbrook will try to control the clock and the line of scrimmage, but if Sherando can come out to an early lead like Jefferson, it may be too much for the Pioneers to overcome.
I predict Micah Carlson to have success through the air and Sherando will bounce back from a really poor showing last week with a win over a cross county rival, 31-21.
