We have a 7-5 record picking games so far this year, and week three looks feature a slew of games that could go either way. Conference play begins for several teams across the state this week. A few of the games on Friday will help shape how the conference will shake out at season’s end. Big matchups across class 6a, including the annual Copper Kettle game.

#16 Whiteland (2-0) at #14 Decatur Central (2-0)

Decatur Central has been the head of the class in the Mid-State Conference for quite some time. Year after year, the Hawks put an offensive product on the field capable of scoring at anytime. The defense is anchored by two of the best in the state. However, Whiteland is showing signs of old and Coach Fisher has the Warriors competing again. Can the Hawks stop the Warrior’s rushing attack that is averaging nearly 400 yards a game? The week one upset defeating defending class 5a state champion Columbus East, is an indicator the Warriors are back.

Players To Watch
Whiteland: RB Jake Perry, DL Marcus Havens, DL Matthew Havens, DB Trevor Larence

Decatur Central: DB Larry Tracy, RB Kenny Tracy, ATH Jason Allen, OLB Chamaar Smith

Prediction: Decatur Central 24-21
