PLAYERS TO WATCH:
THE OUTLOOK After escaping Madison County with a 6-3 victory back on September 20, the Conqueror offense got back on track in back-to-back wins over University Christian (39-0) and Episcopal (59-7) in the last two weeks. But it is Trinity's defense that has been the story this season, allowing a total of just 18 points through their five games.
Led by defensive lineman Jeffrey Holland (eight sacks) defensive back David Crowley (three interceptions) and linebacker Victor Alexander (28 tackles), this elite unit will see its toughest test of the year this week.
After a season-opening loss to DeMatha (Md.), Godby has rolled up 210 points in the last four weeks, hitting the 50-point mark on three separate occasions. The Cougars feature a potent stable of running backs, as five different players have carried the ball at least 20 times. Quarterback J.T. Bradwell is a dual-threat catalyst, as he has thrown for 13 touchdowns and is Godby's leading rusher as well.
On the flip side, the Godby defense will have to content with Trinity's star sophomore running back Jalen Buie, who is averaging better than 8.5 yards per carry this season (81 rushes, 694 yards, 6 TD).
Stopping the run game is the priority for Harris and Pugh, who has committed to Florida State. When the Conquerors throw to Louisville commit Isaiah Ford, the Cougars and DB Tony Fields and company will be there.
Whatever the outcome, this week's game serves as a great test for two teams hoping to play deep into the postseason.
