Here’s how to watch Millard West vs. Creighton Prep

After a bye week, Millard West looks to get back to even in the win/loss column. The Wildcats lost to Elkhorn South 30-28 in week one, defeated Millard North 21-14 in week two and lost to a tough Millard South team in week three 31-12.

Creighton Prep comes off a 24-21 heartbreaking loss to undefeated Lincoln Southeast (4-0). The Junior Jays were down 21-0 in the third quarter but stormed back to make it a close game late in the 4th quarter. Nebraska tight end recruit AJ Rollins contributed with a 7-yard TD pass from QB Sam Meysenburg. In the first two weeks of the season, Creighton Prep lost to top ranked Omaha Westside 42-0 and beat Papillion LaVista 21-16.

Players to Watch:

The Junior Jays offense is led by senior QB Sam Meysenburg and Nebraska commit, TE A.J. Rollins.  The 3-star tight end is the #5 ranked player in ESPN’s top Nebraska recruits.  At 6’6″ and 220 lbs, Rollins is an imposing figure who gives Meysenburg a big target for the offense. Look for Rollins to get lots of attention from his QB Meysenburg and the Millard West defense.

Another Junior Jay to keep your eye on is Creighton Prep’s Alex Bullock. According to his coach, the senior WR/LB has been a beast on both sides of the ball with 18 receptions for 286 yds. and 3 INT’s so far this season.
