Prep football preview: Heritage at Prairie
HERITAGE (3-6) vs. PRAIRIE (2-7)
When, where: 7 p.m., Friday; District Stadium, Battle Ground HS, Battle Ground
Internet radio: None
Last meeting: Heritage won 24-0 in 2014
Players to watch: Heritage RB Kalani Umiamaka, who rushed for 155 yards and three TDs in the win over Prairie last year; Prairie QB Kevin Aguirre will lead the offense that will focus on ball control.
Game notes: The game will be the debut for both head coaches: Matt Gracey at Heritage, and Kevin Baker at Prairie. So after this game, one coach will have a 1.000 career winning percentage at their new school. Gavin Lee will quarterback the Timberwolves, and Nick Somboun will be his top target. Prairie played a lot of younger players last season, and they hope that experience will show itself this season.
The Prep Proletariat says: “Heritage has four shutouts in its program history, and three have come against Prairie. Predicting a shutout would be a bold move, so we won’t. HERITAGE 27, PRAIRIE 6”
