PLAYERS TO WATCH
Joe Chylak, RB, Mid Valley: Only a sophomore, he has run for 573 yards and nine touchdowns this season. Luke Yanisko, LB, Dunmore: Has 69 tackles with four for loss, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.
Scouting Mid Valley: Leading rusher Zach Fiume left last week’s game against Lakeland with an injury, but expects to play. The Spartans struggled in the last meeting against the Bucks, running for only 83 yards on 28 carries, and the running game is their bread and butter. The defense yielded 351 yards on the ground in the Week 8 game. Scouting Dunmore: Colin Holmes didn’t play in Week 10 and the Bucks just turned things over to Kyle Lasher and all he did was total 234 yards rushing. Gavin Darcy is an effective quarterback. But this team is fueled by its mass and strength along lines.
