Sequoyah vs Cedartown: Chiefs looking to slow the Bulldogs ground game

Scouting the Chiefs

The Sequoyah Chiefs will be at home at Skip Pope for the first time this season. We have historically known Sequoyah as a run first, run often team. This year we have seen the Chiefs incorporate a little more passing as both quarterbacks Kolby Martin and Jaxon Nesbitt continues to gain mastery of the playbook. Players who have stood out as receivers for the Chiefs early in the season include Ean Maria, Will Rajecki, and Brooks Darling. Sequoyah's defense will continue to rely on linebacker Taiwo Ogundele, and safeties Bretton Darling and Jackson Hancock to steady the unit.

Scouting the Bulldogs

Cedartown will visit Skip Pope stadium for the first time ever this Friday. Last year's Class 4A runner up lost a lot of production to graduation. They will try to get back in to the win column as they suffered a mild upset down in LaGrange against Callaway last week. The Bulldogs are off their pace offensively from a year ago, but still have a bevy of backs to help shoulder the load. Expect for Tae Harris and Isaiah Johnson to get the bulk of the carries this week. The two have combined for 167 yards and 1-TD in two games. The Bulldogs are certainly more run oriented but quarterback Drew Ledbetter is crafty enough to beat teams with his arm. Expect for the aforementioned Johnson and DB Tadji Neal to try to limit the Chiefs newfound passing attack.

Pundit's Pick

The Chiefs run defense will certainly be tested this week as the Bulldogs will try to wear down Sequoyah. Cedartown is a dangerous team but they aren’t as explosive as some of the teams that we’ve seen in the past. We think this game will be nip and tuck and like the Chiefs on the heels of their newfound passing attack. Sequoyah by 4.
