Quick Fact: Berwick QB C.J. Curry threw for three TDs in last year’s game.
Scouting Berwick: QB C.J. Curry is coming off the game of his career as he threw for 337 yards and four TDs in a 41-7 victory over Crestwood. WR Andrew Force continues to put up Tecmo Bowl statistics. He had five receptions for 193 yards and three touchdowns. The Dawgs didn’t really fire up the ground game, but Central Columbia transfer Dain Kowalski is expected to be a force this year.
Scouting Pottsville: Pottsville was married to the Wing-T offense under former coach Kevin Keating. Not so under McGeoy, who is using multiple formations. That showed in the Crimson Tide’s 41-13 victory to open the season vs. Shamokin. Senior QB Tyler Moser was 7-of-10 for 202 yards and three TDs. Freshman RB Darion Jacoby (86 yards) and junior RB Carey Bostick (78 yards) made the run offense steady, although neither broke off long, game-changing runs.
What To Expect: Berwick has too many skill guys who can make big plays in an instant. Pottsville can’t and won’t match that firepower tonight.
