Football: East Meck at North Meck
Kickoff: 7 p.m. East Meck (0-2) at North Meck (0-2). Last meeting: North Meck won 47-8 last year. Players to watch: East Meck–QB Khalil Gilliam. RB/DB Bryon Collins, OL Devin Griffin; North Meck–QB Nolan Beasley, LB Trevor Lowery, LB LaDante Daniels. THE SKINNY: Two teams hoping to rebound meet in this non-conference game. NM was shut out by Independence last week and EM lost by 30 to Providence. The Vikings have experience on defense and at quarterback, which will help when conference games begin. East Meck, with only three seniors, is in rebuilding mode under veteran coach Barry Shuford, who took over last spring. The Eagles have allowed 79 points in two games and aren’t strong along the line of scrimmage. North Meck should be able to dominate up front and create adequate running and passing lanes.
