Friday night (9/21), the class of the Mid Illini football conference face off against one another, and the Super Nutrition Red Zone Game of the Week will call the action.
Washington, Metamora and Morton are all 4-0 overall and 2-0 in conference play. After getting whipped by #1 ranked (Class 5A) Washington on last week’s Red Zone GOW, 3-1 Dunlap returns home to face Metamora in our main game of the week. We’ll see if the Eagles can bounce back and just how good Metamora quarterback Tommy Hall and his receiving corps are this season. Former Illini starting lineman and Peoria Pirates coach Tony Johnson and I will stay on the Dunlap train for the third straight week.
Tom Meredith will be in Morton for the Potters game with fellow unbeaten Washington. The Panthers veteran defense wreaked havoc on the Dunlap offense last week (pictured above) and are a legitimate state contender in 5A. We’ll find out if Morton’s high-scoring offense can move the ball against Washington.
