BA will have five starters back from last season. William King (6-3, 200. sr.) will start as BA’s quarterback. Left tackle Roger Rushing (5-11, 225, sr.) and center Ben McCarroll (5-8, 223, sr.) bring experience to the offensive line. Madison Smith (6-1, 177, jr.) gives the Cougars at threat at wide receiver.

On defense, King is the team’s top returning tackler. He will joined by Carter Culbertson (5-11, 220, sr.) and JT Cline (6-2, 211. sr.).

Last year: Prentiss Christian edge BA 21-20.

My prediction for this year:  The Cougars and the Saints will give their football fans plenty of excitement as BA edges Prentiss Christian 14-13.
