Welcome home Eagles! For one of only three games this season, Carroll is playing at home against a formidable City League opponent in West. As Carroll looks to improve to 3-0 on the season, look for West and their I-Formation to challenge Carroll’s defense. Led by a two-headed running machine in Jermaine Bell and Shakur Johnson, West will put Isaiah Carter and company to the test all game long. Also look out for a potent defense from West, as they have eight returning starters from last season.


I think that this game will be more tightly contested than many people think, as West is well led by coach Weston Schartz and has won both of their games. In the end, however Carroll will prevail with a 42-31 slugfest.
