Carter Jackson and Dylan Babcock make up a massive right side of Tioga’s line. Both weigh over 250 pounds.
Sidney standout junior lineman Austin Dean, a 6-foot-6, 260-pounder, will be waiting on the other side.
“It’s going to be a tall order,” Sidney coach Jeff Matthews said of a Tioga squad that beat Class C power Chenango Forks, 7-0, in Week 2. “Hopefully, we’ll have some success doing the things we do, but we’ll have to work real hard.”
Depending on how things shake out Friday night, the D/H-Delhi game could be for a playoff spot.
Both teams are big up front.
The Bulldogs will need to pay special attention to the 6-1, 285-pound Scott Bowie, who had a big game against Unatego.
“They’re big and they’re physical,” Delhi coach Dave Kelly said. “They have nice speed at wideout and their quarterback (Mills) is 6-2 and 180 pounds. He’s hard to tackle and can throw it 55 yards down the field. They’ve been winning.”
