Lawrence County (2-1), under the direction of second-year head coach Jaymie Palmer, defeated their long-time rivals, the Brookhaven Panthers, 55-33 in an offensive showdown at Monticello.
This week, the Cougars prepare to travel east on Hwy. 84 to Prentiss to take on the Bulldogs.
The Bulldogs (1-2), coached by Tim McNair, lost to the Heidelberg Oilers 20-12 last week.
LCHS’ top offensive performer last week against Brookhaven was junior running back Quitten Brown with 17 rushes for 172 yards. Charl’Tez Nunnery completed 3-of-7 passes for 57 yards and rushed 24 yards on seven carries.
Defensively, senior inside linebacker T-Tez Cole had another great night as he was credited with a whopping 22 tackles, six of them for losses, and recovered a fumble.
Last year, Lawrence County edged Prentiss 21-20 in Monticello.
My pick: The Lawrence County Cougars will prevail over the Prentiss Bulldogs 28-21.
