Both teams come into the game with 1-2 records and desperately want to avoid falling to 1-3 as they head into district play. The Wildcats are ranked #6 and the Junior Jays are #8 in the Nebraska Class A high school football rankings.
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.
