Unbeaten Enterprise-Clarke looks for win No. 4 when Raleigh comes to town on Friday night.
Enterprise is coming off a 38-6 romp past Kemper County last week. Raleigh, 0-2, was bombed by long-time 2A power Taylorsville 55-6.
Bulldog Coach Jud Gartman isn't taking Raleigh light. This is Enterprise's last tune-up game before starting a brutal Region 7-2A schedule next week.
Senior quarterback Don Moore directs the Bulldogs' multiple pro-I that features a double-slot. Kelly Jimmerson is the tailback but has also lined up in the slot and at end.
Gartman says his top two linemen so far have been senior left tackle Matt McCloud (6-2, 215) and senior center Bobby Moore (5-9, 180).
The defense is paced by the Swain brothers. Zac Swayne keys the interior line while Zeb Swain patrols at middle linebacker.
As for Raleigh, Gartman said the team is led by a 330-pound nose tackle and a good size tight end who's listed at 6-foot-4, 220 pounds.
Quitman at South Jones
Quitman will try to break a two-game losing streak when they head down to Ellisville to take on the South Jones Braves.
Like Quitman, South Jones is 1-2 on the season. They have scored just 21 points in three games this season for an average of just seven per game. They have allowed 37 points. Last year, the Panthers defeated South Jones 3-0.
Quitman, meanwhile, has been in all three of its games including last week's heartbreaking 18-13 loss to Greene County in the final minutes.
The Panthers are paced by quarterback Prentiss Davis and tailback Evan Pickens.
Heidelberg Academy at Central Academy
The Heidelberg Academy Rebels head to Macon on Friday in a bid to extend their winning ways to two straight. This is the District 3-A opener for both teams.
Last week, the Rebels belted the Lamar School Raiders 35-14 behind a strong second half showing. Heidelberg came from behind a 14-7 deficit to score four unanswered touchdowns including three in the second half.
The Rebels finished with 261 yards rushing, of which 146 came in the second half. They held Lamar to just 14 yards in total offense in the second half.
Pacing the offense was tailback Jeremy Eason who rushed for 103 yards and two touchdowns. Heath Ainsworth added 76 yards on 16 carries. Quarterback Josh Webb threw for a pair of touchdowns on passes of 32 and 13 yards.
The leaders of the Rebel defense are Brannon Sims (6-4, 215) and end J.B. Harris.
Central Academy is 0-3 on the season and have been outscored by a whopping 128-12 count. Heidelberg won last year's game 61-6.
Wayne County at Pascagoula
The War Eagles head to the Gulf Coast to take on the Pascagoula Panthers in the final of four non-regional football games.
Wayne County is coming off a 29-21 loss to Laurel last week that dropped its record to 2-1 on the season. The War Eagles are averaging 20 points per game while allowing 20.5.
Pascagoula enters with an 0-2 record.
Wayne Academy at Newton Academy
Wayne Academy opens District 3-A action on the road at Newton Academy.
Wayne has been impressive to date rolling to three straight wins. They have outscored opponents 99-19 in three games.
Newton Academy, meanwhile, is 0-3 having been outscored by an average of 33-6.
