Cooper vs. Conner
Cooper (6-0) will take their undefeated season to Conner (3-2) on Friday. This is a big District game as well, as the Cougars already possess one loss to South Oldham (63-57) in the District.
The Jaguars have only allowed 43 points all season, and they’ll go against an offense that has scored 221 points, 57 last week against South Oldham. Cooper defeated Scott last week 46-14 and they’re led by Senior QB Tyler Morris and Senior RB AJ Collins. Morris has thrown for 693 yards and 10 TD’s and has also rushed for 320 yards and 7 TD’s. Collins leads the Jaguars in rushing with 633 yards and 7 TD’s.

Campbell County vs. Simon Kenton
Campbell County (2-3) has lost two in a row to Cooper and Conner. They played Cooper tough and lost their lead to Conner last week 35-28. Look for the Camels to give Simon Kenton (6-0) a good game.

Simon Kenton is 3-4 against Campbell County since 2005 and lost to the Camels last year in a low scoring affair, 6-0.
