Independence vs. Rocky River

GAME WEEK 11
By Andrew Stark

Who: Independence ( 6-3, 4-0) at Rocky River (3-6, 2-2)

When: 7 pm

Last Meeting: Independence won, 47-19, on October 31, 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; Rocky River: quarterback Tyshawn Carter, quarterback/tight end Phillip Clay, running backs Elijah Henry, Justice Styron and Nygle Farmer, receiver/defensive back Kendall Lewis, receiver Johari Alexander, lineman Bryson Adams, defensive back Tyrell Robinson, linebacker Larry Blanton.

The Keys: A big-time rivalry game with a lot at stake is always cause for some great drama, and this week there should be no shortage of big plays and momentum-changing swings. The Patriots have obviously ironed out earlier kinks and continue to lead the Southwestern 4A after a solid win over Myers Park, an early season surprise team who looked like they’d challenge for a league crown.   […]
