Battle of unbeatens
Zachary (3-0) at Dutchtown (3-0)Louisiana Class 5A football is alive and well, and this weekend Zachary and Dutchtown will put their perfect records on the line in one of the state's marquee matchups. For Dutchtown keep a watch on Landon Collins, the state's No. 1 overall prospect. A college safety prospect, Collins will also play running back on Friday night. For Zachary, the difference-maker could be Dillon Beard, an athletic, 6-foot-2, 220-pound senior who provides a big mismatch at tight end.
Note: Dutchtown is No. 3 and Zachary is No. 5 in the Scout.com 5A state rankings compiled by Mike Coppage
