Jackson Prep will face off versus Presbyterian Christian Friday in a critical road matchup for the Patriots. Prep comes into this game looking for a little revenge, seeing as the Bobcats were the Patriots lone loss last year.
Time: 7 pm, Friday, September 22nd
Location: Hattiesburg, Mississippi
Records: Jackson Prep (5-0) PCS (4-1)
Matchup of the Week:
Cooper Carroll and Co. versus Brandon Thornton —
PCS’s Junior Quarterback, Brandon Thornton, has shown flashes of consistency throughout the year but has struggled as of late with it. Thornton threw for 112 yards and a touchdown last week in a loss to Lamar, but he also had problems with his composure as he threw three interceptions to go with his one touchdown pass. It will be a tough task for Thornton seeing as the Patriot defense is one of the more elite in the conference. The Patriots have already forced opposing quarterbacks into 7 interceptions on the year. Thornton will have to have a memorable performance Friday if he wants to get past star secondary members like Cooper Carroll and Nevin Wells.
