    I’m going to say those numbers are somewhat off a little. Pikevilles line is a little bigger than those weights listed.

    Are they fast as well or just big?

    Get on YouTube and type in Pikeville vs. Hazard and find the game from this year. The last time other than the Raceland game that Pikeville faced any adversity.

    Beechwood is loaded up front. This will be a great game.

    I agree it’s going to be a battle. Check that game and see what you think.

    Does Pikeville platoon? How many seniors do they have that start?

    I think this might be the most lopsided game of the championship weekend. Beechwood wins 35-7

    Hopefully your not basing your results on how last years game went.

    I don’t see this being more than a 1 score game either way.

    I like Beechwood's chances in this game. Pikeville is a force to be reckoned with but from the film I have seen I believe Beechwood just has the better personnel. You never know for sure till you see the matchups on the field. Beechwood's all senior line with two D1 committed players is going to be a very tough matchup for Pikeville. As the game goes on those hosses up front for Beechwood are going to wear down the Pikeville defense. Castleman is strong, fast and will hit you. This is going to be a role reversal from 2015 when Daric Pugh just kept battering Beechwood till he finally broke loose.

    On the defensive side, Beechwood has the speed to hang with the Pikeville receivers. As someone said above, the Beechwood linebackers need to step up and play their best game of the year. Beechwood needs to prevent the big plays and make Pikeville have to grind it out on offense. Roberts is going to be tough to keep under control but if Beechwood can keep him from breaking big plays, I like the Tigers.

    There are always players that step up and have big games in the championship. I look for Tyler Donoho to have a big impact on this game for Beechwood. He has been getting better every game and making plays. I think he is going to make some big plays for Beechwood.

    I also think Luke Bolger is going to make some big plays for Beechwood on both sides of the ball. He is an athlete at defensive end and will have some chances to be big in this game keeping Roberts in the pocket and putting on pressure.

    Go Tigers!
