Forsyth Central vs Etowah: Eagles high flying offense to test the Forsyth Central defense

Scouting the Bulldogs

The Forsyth Central Bulldogs will look to get back into the win column this week after falling short aginst North Forsyth a week ago. First year head coach Chad Pickett has the Bulldogs competitive in their first two games of the season. The offense is led by Drew Reid who is in his first full season as a starter at quarterback. Reid has two experience seniors to help along his development in running back Jayce Todaro and receiver Cade Haertel. Expect for the Bulldogs to run behind Braden Carter. The senior tackle stands 6’6” tall and weighs 285. Forsyth Central’s defense is led by Aidan White. He was an all-region selection last season and has started off this season wreaking havoc on opposing offensive lines.

Scouting the Eagles

The Etowah Eagles came out on top against their county rivals last week. The Eagles had a big night from Xavier Mahoney who did a little bit of everything on his way to amassing 286 yards of total offense, passing, rushing and receiving. Mahoney split time at QB with Jack Strickland who showed off a big arm and plenty of poise as he faced unrelenting pressure last week. Defensively, the hard hitting Vinny Pacini will certainly be patrolling the secondary. He has also proven his worth in run support from his safety position.

Pundit's Pick

We wouldn’t necessarily call this a rebuilding year for Forsyth Central. It is however a transition year. The Bulldogs do have some really good pieces to build around for a successful season. If Aidan White can slow down the Etowah run game and help contain Etowah’s Mahoney, we like their chances. We all know that’s easier said than done. We like the Eagles by three touchdowns.
