Johnson Central is currently enjoying a 20 game win streak, and has won 33 of their last 34 games. They also have one of the state's top running backs in rushing and scoring in Dillon Preston, who is averaging 162 yards and 3.5 touchdowns per game. They have combined to outscore their five opponents 240-49 this season.

The Golden Eagles may be the assumed King of the Hill (or maybe more appropriately, King of the Mountain) until they're knocked down, but Letcher County Central is locked in on becoming the team to do the knocking on Friday.

The Cougars are also one of the 6 undefeated teams currently prowling around 4A football in Kentucky. They're coming off an two weeks away from action, and after a not-so-fantastic 4-7 football season in 2019, Letcher Central has also done a number on their competition this year, combining to outscore their four opponents 131-37.

A couple of reasons to keep your eyes on this game:

1) Both teams played fairly similarly against 4A Harlan County. Johnson Central beat the Black Bears 33-2 last week, and Letcher Central beat the Black Bears 24-7 back on October 2nd.

2) With Dillon Preston rushing behind D1 recruit Grant Bingham, the Golden Eagles' offensive game plan has been "hey diddle diddle, we're running up the middle." They've only passed for a total 292 yards this season (and that includes a 74 yard connection from Grant Rice to Toby Spriggs against Perry Central on Oct 9). On the flip side of that, Letcher Central's defense has been holding most of their competitors to little more than 225 yards total offense, and on top of consistently shutting down passing, they have been able to stand strong against the run game...and Johnson Central is definitely going to be bringing the running game, averaging almost 400 yards per game on the ground.

Letcher Central was building a head of steam before being sidelined three weeks ago. A layoff that long, combined with Johnson Central being Johnson Central, is a recipe for Letcher's first loss. JC won both meetings last year a combined 97-7. LCC is clearly improved this season, but I don't think it's enough to hang with the champs.

Same score at the end of the first quarter.

One play into the second quarter and its now 35-0 JC.

Preston has ran for a TD and caught 2 TDs.  One from JC QB and one from LCC QB.
