Week four: Rootstown (2-1) @ Mogadore (3-0)
7.p.m Friday at Wildcat Stadium
Storyline: Mogadore heads into week three undefeated and averaging nearly 30 points a conference. What else is new? Everything with the Wildcats do offensively is predicated on the running game, which is usually a two-headed monster.
Senior Kodey Chance has been out with injury, but senior Jake McAvinew has still been plowing through defenses. Kyle Cramer has helped fill in for Chance at running back too.
Rootstown needs to bounce back from its first loss of the season, a shutout loss to United 14-0. One big way to accomplish that would be to stop allowing the opening kickoff returned for a touchdown. It has happened twice already this season.
Rootstown plays a stout defense and outscored its first two opponents, Sebring McKinley and Jackson Milton, by a combined score of 50-7.
