Arguably, Eastside’s biggest weapon could be on special teams where senior punter Ezra King, a first team all-state selection in 2018, averages 42 yards per punt. King has also taken over the placekicking duties in 2019, making 6 of 10 field goals with a long of 45 yards and 41 of 42 extra points. As for MP, the Bulldogs’ defense has been porous at times in 2019, yielding a new single season school record 309 points. MP’s cur— rent points-per—game allowed average of 30.9 is the second-worst mark in program history, trailing only the 1944 squad’s average of 51 points-per—game allowed, which was achieved in a single 51-0 loss at R.E. Lee. In Thursday’s win over Howard, the Bulldogs gave up 355 rushing yards, which marked the third time this season that an opponent has rushed for more than 300 yards against the Bulldogs. MP’s top all-around player is running back/ comerback Rico Harden, who is second on the team in rushing with 496 yards on 99 WBIMM 89.1": i 1 Forsyth~based Christian Radio ’ anilmémtitn dhiirdhmrfl farrhnnkrnmKbelieversmbroadcasting carries with a team-best nine touchdowns. Harden is also MP’s leading receiver with 350 yards on 16 receptions with five more scores. On defense, Harden has a team—best four interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown and 14 pass break-ups while on special teams, he averages 29 yards per kick- off return, including one score. If MP beats Eastside, the Bulldogs would face the winner of the first round matchup between Ridgeland, the No. 1 seed from Region 6-AAAA and Madison County, the No. 4 seed from Region 8-AAAA. If Ridgeland wins, the Bulldogs would travel to Rossville to play the Panthers on Friday, Nov. 22. IfMadison County wins, then MP would host the Red Raiders on Friday, Nov. 22. MP head coach Brian Nelson, who has won at least one playoff game in each of his seven previous seasons as Dogs’ head coach, said his team will have to show resiliency to extend MP’s playoff run past a single round “We’ve got to build off of this (Thursday’s comeback win over Howard) and play like we did tonight and not quit? Nelson said. “Keep playing no matter what happens and at the end of the night just see where you’re 1) at.
