Game of the Week
#22 Lafayette Jefferson at #15 West Lafayette

This game features two of the most talented rosters in all of high school football in this state. College coaches and scouts will enjoy this matchup featuring collegiate prospective athletes on both teams. West Lafayette’s defensive star George Karlaftis, a Purdue recruit, headlines tonight’s game from a recruiting standpoint. However, there’s a ton of talent on the Red Devil squad, looking to rebound from last year’s disappointing loss in the regional final. Lafayette Jefferson is also looking to prove that last year’s undefeated regular season was no fluke. Their perfect season derailed by Carmel in last year’s sectional championship has this talented Bronchos’ squad, eager to get back on the field.
