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.
