Wildcats look for win at Du Quoin
The Anna-Jonesboro Community High School football team will attempt to record its first win of the season as it travels to Southern Illinois River-to-River Conference Mississippi Division foe Du Quoin Friday for a 7 p.m. start.
“It’s certainly a tough place to play,” A-J football coach Brett Detering said. “It doesn’t get much easier this week.”
The Wildcats are 0-2 and the Indians improved to 1-1 after a 58-0 win this past Friday over Sparta.
Quarterbacking the Indians is senior Noah Gates, 6-1, 180 pounds.
Some top running back threats for Du Quoin are seniors Lane Bauman, 5-10, 180 pounds, and Konner Harris, 5-7, 200 pounds, and junior Damian Henry, 5-10, 340 pounds.
Top receivers are seniors Wade Roberson, 6-2, 175 pounds, and Owen Bradley, 6-0, 190 pounds.
