Pick Six: MCA vs Madison
MARANATHA (3-0) AT MADISON (3-0)
In what very well could decide the Eight-Man I District 3 title, Madison and Maranatha bring completely different styles into Friday’s clash of unbeatens. Madison has been ground and pound under Alex McMillian and averages 277.7 yards per game on the ground, all in half games. Nasun Wasson leads the way with 376 yards and eight touchdowns on just 11 carrries. Ryan Wolgram does have a pair of 100-yard passing games and the Madison defense hasn’t allowed a point and is plus-14 in turnovers on the season, the lone touchdown scored against the Bulldogs coming on a kickoff return. Maranatha, meanwhile relies almost exclusively on the pass. Receiver Brock West was a first-team All-Eight-Man I pick last year and already has 376 yards and 7 TDs on 14 catches this year. Nate Burdette has thrown for 604 yards and 11 touchdowns and also run for 208 yards and five scores. Madison edged Maranatha 32-22 last year.
