Urban said there could be changes to the offense after the Twin Lakes game, and he said tonight junior Devin Winegardner (6-5, 235) will start at guard and senior Alex Emmerd will move over to tackle.
“It gives us a little more size up front. Peru has size and we’ll be able to counter that,” Urban said.
This is the 111th meeting between the two teams and is the longest running rivalry game in the state. Logan leads the series 57-48-5 and has won 10 straight.
Logan’s 1977 North Central Conference team will be recognized before the 7:30 p.m. kickoff.
Cass (1-0) at W. Lafayette (1-0)
The Class 2A No. 7 Kings travel to Class 3A No. 9 West Lafayette for a 7:30 p.m. kickoff.
The Kings are coming off an impressive road win over Class A power Pioneer to face Class 3A power West Lafayette on the road.
“We don’t have long to celebrate our victory. We’re going right into the fire in the pan,” Cass coach Scott Mannering said.
West Side won at previously ranked Class 3A Tri-West 26-15 last week.
“They just beat a really good Tri-West team,” Mannering said. “They return almost everybody off last year’s team. They have very good skill people and their linemen are all 6-3 or 6-4 and 250 pounds. They have good size and they always have good skill players. They have a very good running back in Maurice Woodard.”
Woodard rushed for 247 yards and two TDs against Tri-West. He became the school’s all-time leading rusher last year as a junior. Parker Ronchetto was 11 of 17 passing for 147 yards and a TD against Tri-West.
The Kings defeated the Red Devils 14-6 last year to snap a five-game losing streak against them. They are 3-5 since the series was started in 2005. Mannering said this will be the final meeting as West Lafayette has added McCutcheon in Week 2 for next year, so Cass will need to find a new opponent.
