CAN KENTLAKE STOP KEIVARAE?
SPSL North champion Kentlake will get an up-close look at All-America running back KeiVarae Russell when the Falcons host Russell and the Mariner Marauders in a Class 4A state play-in game tonight. Russell could have a hard time finding room to run – Kentlake’s rushing defense is second-best in the SPSL, allowing just 106.6 yards per game.
Second-ranked Lakes is piling up points, averaging a Class 3A-leading 55.4 points per game and winning contests by an average of 47 points per game.
