Spartans Face A Record-Setting Passing Combo From Southern Boone

Moberly will face a potent passing combination when Southern Boone visits for a second round district playoff game at Dr. Larry K. Noel-Spartan Stadium Friday night. A.J. Evans has thrown 28 touchdown passes and 15 have gone to Chase Morris. Spartans coach Cody McDowell says his pass defense will be tested….

Morris has 55 receptions and is 79 yards away from a thousand-yard season. First-year Southern Boone coach Mark Ross says Morris helps open up the offense….

Whether rain impacts the passing game or not, McDowell says they have to win upfront and run the football….

Ross came to Southern Boone in the offseason, after leading Marceline to the Class 1 State Championship game a year ago…..

The 4th seed Eagles are 5-5 after winning an opening round district game over Eldon 38-6 last week. The top-seed Spartans had a bye and come into the game with a record of 4-5. The last time these two programs met, Southern Boone won a district championship game at Moberly in 2018. You can hear the game on KWIX AM and FM and Brad will have the play by play and will be joined in the booth by Cord Hagedorn. On KWIX, our football Friday will begin with the Lindy’s College Football Report at 6:06.
