Center Louis Darras (shoulder), WR/DB Steven Shiver (deep bruise) and sophomore DE Justin Smith (hand) will all be close to 100% for this week's game.
As we mentioned last week, the Rebels travel to the Halls Red Devils in Week 9, then close the season at the lair of the Lenoir City Panthers. Halls is 4-4 coming into the Maryville game and Lenoir City, with only 1 win, will definitely be below .500 and just looking for positive momentum going into the 2007 season.
Halls biggest weapons on offense are a strong ground game, led by juniors Wesley Kitts and Reese Kelley and solid receiving from WR Daniel Dayton.
The duo of Kitts and Kelley has combined for over 670 yards on the season. Dayton will finish with somewhere between 800 and 900 yards receiving on the year. He's averaging just under 90 yards a game in 2006.
Defensively, the Devils swarm to the ball. There aren't many occasions where one man makes a solo tackle on this defense. The Red Devil D is lead by LB Brandon Dutton, with 65 tackles on the season.
They'll be stretched to the limit against Maryville's three headed rushing monster composed of seniors Adrian "Tank" Baker, short yardage monster Ryan Singleton and scat back Mike Kelley. The trio has rushed for 1058 yards through Week 7, for 15 TD's.
Dayton and QB/DB Gary Cooper are impressive in the Devil defensive secondary as well, but they will also have their hands full with the likes of UT commitment Tyler Maples, junior Steven Shiver and TE Aaron Douglas. The trio has combined for 1075 yards and 13 scores for the Rebels.
Defensively, the Rebels have only allowed 10.6 points per game on the season.
