Independence v. East Meck.


By Andrew Stark

Who: East Meck (2-3) at Independence (2-3)

When: 7 pm

Last Meeting: Independence won, 38-0, on Sept. 26, 2014

Key Players: Independence: quarterback Christian McPhail, running back Quantavious McGill, cornerback/receivers Elijah Small and Cedric Stone, linebackers Tylon Clawson, Jerome Cochran and Rob Casanova, defensive ends Christian Colon and Kima Bell; East Meck: quarterback Khalil Gilliam, running backs Juan Powell and Khamal Howard, receiver Aaron Walker, linebackers Jonathan Jones, Trey Hodge and Tyler McCall, linemen Cody Allen, Keyshawn Barnes and Xavier Jackson

The Keys: The Patriots have a losing record for the first time since 2010, but hope is on the way. East Meck has a pair of wins, but the next three Independence opponents are a combined 2-12 so they should make a run. The Patriot defense has been a little shaky and the Eagles will try to attack it on the ground with Juan Powell and Khamal Howard, who have combined to run for over 1,000 yards already. If they can find running lanes, they could have another big day. […]
