Can Sanders Lead Centennial To A Win Against Clarksville Friday?

Williamson County Football
By: David Wells

After defeating Brentwood High School at home for the first time in school victory, Centennial High School returns to the road to play Clarksville High School Friday night.

The Cougars will once again rely on running back Deon Sanders for its offensive production, as the senior has had an outstanding season with over 500 yards on the ground. Against Brentwood, Sanders rushed for 311 yards on 42 carries and scored three touchdowns.

While not as much of an issue in the Brentwood game, Centennial will likely struggle again with run defense; the Cougars have already given up over 1,000 rushing yards, and many of those have come on big plays.

Passing has also been a struggle for Centennial. Last week, the Cougars only threw the ball 12 times for six completions and 42 passing yards.

Clarksville High School has gone winless in its first three games of the season, suffering losses by as small as one point and getting shut out by Ravenwood High School 46-0.

In its last game, Clarksville jumped out to a 21-7 lead in the first quarter before surrendering two touchdowns in the fourth quarter and losing 33-28 to Rossview.

Kickoff is at 7 p.m. Friday night.
