Game: Peoria (Az.) Liberty (2-0) at Glendale (Az.) Mountain Ridge (1-0); 7 p.m.
Mt. Ridge Players to Watch: senior RB Troy Williams, senior LB Jake Skadeland, senior LB Billy McEowen, senior OG Ryan DeLung
Keys to a Mt. Ridge Win: Shut down Tyler Wyatt. He is the heart and soul of the Liberty team. He does so much for them and has the ability to run when things break down. LBs Skadeland and McEowen are very good players that need to have good games tonight.
The Mt. Lions need to establish a run game early. Troy Williams is a load, weighing in at 6-2 215.
Liberty Players to Watch: senior CB Kory Wilson, junior WR Alex Jackson, senior QB Tyler Wyatt, senior RB Jake Schuiteboer, senior DL Aaron Blackwell, junior OL Brandon Sandoval
Keys to a Liberty Win: Liberty has been throw first team over the years but right now they are 2:1 run:pass. Shuiteboer has established himself as a quality RB, rushing for nearly 300 yards in 2 games. Liberty has quality wins this year over Ironwood Ridge and Desert Edge, I expect them to try and lean on Mt. Ridges front 7.
Key Match-up: I love battles in the trenches and we should have a great one here. Liberty DT Aaron Blackwell has been unblockable while Mt. Ridge OG Ryan DeLung is one of the best interior OLs in the state.
