The Perryville Pirates bring a stubborn defense to the field, having allowed just 26 points through the first three games. Head coach Blane Boss has a tough secondary that features Carter Dix and Seth Rousseau, but as a whole, all of the players just complement each other very well.
Fredericktown head coach Chuck Ford shares his perspective of what makes the Perryville defense tough.
Perryville junior quarterback Drew Hotop was given the reigns for the offense this season, his first at the varsity level, and after a few games, coach Boss reports he’s handled things well.
Coach Ford says Fredericktown is essentially in the same boat with its quarterback situation, starting sophomore Evan Burrows.
