GAME 7 - The Measuring Stick

The Skinny: Baker County head coach Ryan Sulkowski has been under a microscope since taking over the program - but four points kept the Wildcats out of the post-season and five points kept them from being unbeaten. After a rocky start against Columbia (50-0 loss), the 'Cats have run off four straight and face a Bolles team that has played a gauntlet of a schedule that doesn't seem to get any easier.

vs
BAKER COUNTY
BOLLES
Prediction: BAKER COUNTY

PLAYERS TO WATCH:

Baker County: QB Corey Lawler, RB Falon Lee, WR Brandon Miller, LB Rashad Hadley, OL Blake Mills

Bolles;LB Jordan Smalenski, OL Kian Schoenborn, LB Trenton McGhee, QB Colby Peters RB Arterrious Mitchell, RB Gianlucca Heatherley, DE William Zirzow, RB Dexter Carter Jr.

THE OUTLOOKAfter starting the season with a 50-0 loss to rival Lake City-Columbia, the Baker County Wildcats have quietly ripped off four straight wins. Lawler has aptly filled the role of QB vacated by Thomas Sirk (Duke) and the O-line, led by Mills at center, has opened holes for Lee to get the running game going.

Facing off with the defending 4A state champion Bulldogs is a huge test for the 'Cats, who have their eyes on the playoff berth that was just out of reach last year, following a one-point loss to Clay and a three-point loss to Bishop Kenny.

The Bulldogs are healthy again - which is saying something, considering the rash of injuries Bolles had at the beginning of the season. Peters appears to be returning to pre-season form and Mitchell and Carter are running the wing-T to perfection.

Bolles will focus on stopping Lawler and getting to the senior QB - using McGhee and Zirzow at LB and DE respectively. it's a home game for the 'Dogs, which they rarely lose.

Still, we can't help but sense a possible upset here - as Baker County seems to be playing its best football in some time.

Prediction: Baker County 21 Bolles 20
