Matchup to Watch:


St. Joe’s Kiland Harrison versus the Jackson Prep Secondary


The Bruin’s star wide receiver #6 Kiland Harrison will be one of the names that Patriot fans need to know before game time on Friday. Harrison has proven to be a key contributor for the team all season, and he even has offers from the college level. Per his twitter, he has a Division I offer from Southern Miss and college interests from schools such as Tulane and Central Arkansas. Also, at a camp during the summer he was timed at a 4.29 s in the forty-yard dash. For the Patriots to keep him in check, they will have to focus in on him all game which could be difficult seeing that they are short-handed at the cornerback position. On one side of the field, they are missing both Carter Stockett (injury) and Nicholas Sanford (illness) so they will be forced to shuffle around players through all four quarters.
