HARRISBURG LOOKS TO DOUBLE PROGRAM WIN TOTAL BY SPOILING FAYETTE’S HOMECOMING
Harrisburg began varsity football play in 2014. Junior Wyatt Robinson paces the Bulldogs in rushing with 808 yards and 10 touchdowns, and quarterback Tanner Lanes has thrown for over 1,000 yards and 14 touchdowns.
Fayette also has a first year coach in Mike Thompson, who took over the program coming of a Class 1 state quarterfinal appearance. Thompson says there’s a lot to like about this years group despite the 3-3 start.
Senior running back Dawson Wiswall leads the Falcons on the ground with 481 yards and three rushing touchdowns. In their three wins, the Fayette defense has allowed just over 10 points per game. Hopkins believes the Falcons defense will be the most physical they’ll face all year.
Harrisburg’s lone loss came in Week 1 against Paris. Thomspon says if Fayette wants to win, they need to understand Harrisburg is going to believe in themselves for four quarters.
The Bulldogs are a half game behind Marceline for the top spot in the Lewis & Clark conference, and Fayette is two games back. Coverage of Friday’s game gets underway at 6:25 on KRES and centralmoinfo.com. Scott and Stuart have the call.
