In order for Columbus to pull an upset, offensively QB Chris Masson must catch fire and connect with WRs Guinn and Kyle McDowell, and defensively DT Jarvis Givins and LB Johnny Daniels must find ways to control star RB and Rutgers recruit Antwain Easterling. "Chris has played well and we have some weapons. Offensively, we have to go out and execute. Defensively, Jarvis and Johnny have been great. They need to come up big".
In addition to this being an important game on the high school level, there will be college recruiters at the game to impress. "Demo [Coach Demarest] called my coach and said that he'll be at the game. I hope I can show him something that he likes. Rutgers is the place I want to be at".
On the year, Guinn's numbers have been diminished by a shoulder separation in Game 2, but he now feels 100% and ready to go this week. In last week's contest, he had 5 catches for 82 yards.
"The shoulder feels fine right now and I feel ready to go out and make plays".
