Class 3A Football Top Games of Week 7 by Jeremiah Johnson
WOW!! Is all I can tell you going into league play this week.
We start off with the oldest High School Rivalry game west of the Mississippi!
3-2 Central Wildcats take on the 2-3 Centennial Bulldogs in the 122nd Bell Game. Throw the records out for this rivalry game, Centennial is trying to recapture the Bell as central has had it for the last 3 seasons. The overall series Central leads 59-53-9. This year’s Wildcats are led by #84 Sophomore Amari Brown who leads the powerful running game of the wildcats averaging 145.5 yds per game, followed by #22 Junior fullback Michael Montoya averaging 65.6 yds a game. But not to be outdone the Centennial Bulldogs have a 3 headed monster of a running game led by seniors Blake Roberts 94.8 yds per game, Logan Marquez 80.4 yds per game and dual threat Senior Quarterback Trinity Fesuluai 60.2 yds per game, Trinity has his leading wide receiver as a deep threat in Junior Immanuel Hanrahan. This game which averages 15,000 fans divided one side blue and one side red is the top game this week.
This game is always decided by who takes control of the game and crowd early, seizing the momentum and limiting turnovers is the key, who ever does this will win the bell and be able to say the Bell Rings _____?
