Wow it seems like this football season just started yesterday and here we are at the last game of the regular season. After this week is when the real season starts and it's win or go home. But before that, the 1A Game of the Week features two top ten dark horses, Paris and Ludlow, who hope they can surprise some teams in the playoffs.

These two teams come with an impressive 8-1 record so one of these two teams is going to be 8-2 before the playoff start. Paris has put big numbers up on the season averaging 38 points a game and only giving up 10 points per game. Ludlow is averaging 42 points a game and giving up 26 points a game. These teams look close on the scoring side of things but the defense is a little lopsided. Perhaps that's because Ludlow has played a little tougher schedule than Paris?

Ludlow is lead by Quarterback Justin Blackburn who has thrown for over 850 yards and 12 touchdowns. He is also the leading rusher on the team with an impressive 1,515 yards and 25 touchdowns. Sean Stratton is 2nd on the team in rushing with 783 yards and 6 touchdowns. Justin Blackburn has three solid receivers in Trey Donahue, Ian Vallandingham and Max Hathaway. These 3 have accounted for over 730 yards of the 850 Blackburn has thrown for. Cody Brownfield, Justin Blackburn and Dakota Moore are the leaders on the defense tallying up 146 tackles on the season. The defense has also tallied 14 interceptions and 8 fumble recoveries.

Paris is lead by Quarterback Aaron Maggard who has thrown for over 900 yards and 8 touchdowns. In Maggard's absence, the back up quarterback Caedon Vanhoose has thrown for 240 yards on 12-18 passes and 6 touchdowns. It pays to have a solid backup. The Paris Greyhounds have 5 receivers over 100 yards on the season but the big play guy, Eric Johnson, has accounted for almost 600 yards and 5 touchdowns. Marcus Ashford, Jamaun Clark, Will Cox and Caden Vanhoose have accounted for almost 500 yards and 7 touchdowns. Paris has rushed for over 2,000 yards on the season and Matthew Barber accounts for most of it. Matthew Barber has put up 960 yards and 14 touchdowns. He has accounted for almost half of the rushing yards on the team. Will Cox and Jackson Livingood are the leading tacklers on the team tallying up 130 tackles on the season. The Greyhounds' defense has also tallied 8 interceptions and 6 fumble recoveries on the season.

Who wins this regular season ending 1A Game of the Week? Will Ludlow add another solid team to its win list resume? Can Paris get a signature win over a 1A Top 10 team?
