WHITE KNOLL AT DORMAN
White Knoll notes: The Timberwolves closed their most successful regular season in history with a 7-4 record and are assured of post the first winning record in the 11 seasons of varsity football White Knoll boasts one of the top running attacks in the state – averaging 355.8 yards per game. The T-Wolves will likely finish the campaign with three 1,000-yard runners – a true rarity. Tyrell Grant (157-1157-14) and Justin Rose (155-1026-12) are already members of the club, and Lamar Ray (126-974-10) is likely to follow suit this week WK is 0-3 in state playoff matters, and breaking into the W column will be a difficult proposition, considering the first-round opponent is undefeated, defending state champion Dorman.
Dorman notes: The Cavaliers (11-0) are on a serious roll, riding a 17-game winning streak dating back to a Week 9 loss to 2009 to Byrnes. Dorman reversed the decision six weeks later in the Class 4A Division I championship game. The Cavaliers can match the longest winning streak in school history with a win this week Balance is Dorman’s offensive calling card is balance. The Cavaliers closed the regular season with 2,093 yards rushing and 1,963 yards passing The individual offensive leaders are RB Raymond Smith (175-1144-13), QB Nelson Hughes (117-179-1892-17) and WR Charone Peake (43-755-6).
Playoff history: WK is 0-3 in state playoff matters, and breaking into the W column will be a difficult proposition, considering the first-round opponent Surprisingly, Dorman does not sport a glittering postseason resume. In fact, aside from the state championship runs in 2000 and 2009 (a combined 8-0 record), the Cavaliers’ playoff record is a hardly stellar at 28-33.
