Week 3 Game of the Week
No.7 PENN: Very good depth on the offensive and defensive line for the Kingsmen. The offensive line is Led by Purdue commit (longsnapper) Ben Makowski and 6’7 315 tackle Payne McCaskill. The defensive line is led by sack master Kobe Woods, who led last year’s group with 5 sacks. Good size and a ton of playing experience give the Kingsmen the edge up front. Gone is Oakley at quarterback, but Camden Bohn is a solid player and has a great target in college recruit TE Inoke Moala.
NR Snider: Snider’s defense has recorded two shutouts this season, and kept a Luers team with 2 division one offensive players to 27 points. The defense is led by Toledo recruit Jesse Bates at safety. Bates has a great supporting cast and will give Penn’s quarterback fits. Snider has played 2 quarterbacks this season in Isaac Stiebeling and Colton Painter. Malike Bramley is a threat at the receiver position.
Last year’s meeting was a blowout by Penn, winning 38-0. Snider is a lot better this time around. However, like any game, the battle is won upfront and Penn will dominate both sides.
