Todd County Central (5-2) at Butler County (1-5)
Time: 7 p.m.
Location: Butler County High School, Morgantown
After opening the season with five consecutive wins, the Todd County Central Rebels have ended on the wrong side of the scoreboard in the last two weeks and will look to turn that around against Butler County.
The Bears will put their trust in the arm of sophomore quarterback Jagger Henderson today. Henderson is averaging 172 yards per game in the air and has 1,032 passing yards on 72 completed passes this season. He has thrown nine touchdown passes and nine interceptions this season and leads the team with four rushing touchdowns on the year.
Solomon Flener and Bryar Beasley are the top receiving targets for Henderson to throw to. Flener leads the team with 25 catches, 425 yards and five touchdown catches. Beasley adds 14 grabs, 274 yards and three scores.
The Rebels will lean on the ground game with JaTwan Graham, who is averaging over 100 yards per game this season. Todd County as a team averages over 250 yards on the ground per game.
Graham, as well as quarterback Bryce Nolan, has seven touchdown rushes each this year (stats up to date prior to last week's game).
The Rebels are in must-win territory in the district. At 0-2 in the Second District of Class 2A, a loss tonight could put their postseason hopes in jeopardy after a promising start to the season.
