Somerset — Gameday Briefing

Opponent: Betsy Layne Bobcats (1st round playoff game)

Venue: Betsy Layne, Floyd County

Kickoff:  7:30 pm

Records: SHS  5-4, BLHS 9-1

AP Ranking:   SHS #11, BLHS#10                  

Last Meeting: Nov. 4, 2011. Somerset won 47-6 in first round of playoffs.

Last Game: SHS won at home 35-19 over Middlesboro. BLHS won at Jenkins 56-0.

Media Coverage:        Radio play-by-play action from Jon Burlew and Tim Washam on 102.3 FM. Updates from the game, as well as other games will be posted on the Commonwealth Journal’s Facebook page and on the Twitter handle @cjsportseditor.

Keys to Victory:         Somerset must figure out how to handle Senior QB Dylan Hamilton, who has thrown the ball 1.48 MILES this year. That’s 2598 yards with a blistering 65% reception rate (140-215 with 5 interceptions.)  Not only has he thrown for 32 touchdowns, he has run for 5. His favorite receiver, Junior Peyton Case, has taken the ball into the end zone 13 times through the air and once by land. Somerset must keep possession of the ball and thereby keep Hamilton from scoring. Somerset must win the battle of the turnovers. In the last two games, it has lost that battle even though it has won the game.
