Since allowing 44 points to the Panthers in Week 8, the Indians defense allowed one touchdown to Brookfield in the regular season finale, then shut out Highland and Palmyra in the first two rounds of districts. Allen say the play of senior London Brunk is one of the reasons the Indians are on a roll.
Brunk took home second team Clarence Cannon quarterback honors with his 904 passing yards and six touchdowns, and is also a first team defensive back. He will get to take on the conference defensive player of the year in senior John Saxbury. The defensive tackle has 50 tackles, two sacks, and an interception and fumble recovery this year for the Panthers. Monroe City coach David Kirby explains what makes Saxbury special.
Kirby went onto say Saxbury makes an impact on the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball, and it will also be an important ingredient Friday if the Panthers want a third straight district championship.
Clark County will also be looking for its second straight district championship. Last year, the Indians made it to the Class 2 semifinals as the four seed in their district. Coverage of the Class 2 District 6 Championship gets underway on KRES and centralmoinfo.com at 6:40pm. Scott Lunte has the call.
