Prep football preview: Hockinson at La Center
When, where: 7 p.m., Friday; La Center Stadium, La Center HS, La Center
Internet radio: None
Last meeting: Hockinson won 28-3 in 2014
Players to watch: For Hockinson, it’s not one guy. Just watch the defense. La Center RB Cole Judd was the Trico League offensive MVP.
Game notes: The Hawks return almost their entire starting defense from last season that allowed just 27 points in six league games. La Center does not shy away from tough non-league opponents. They open against three 2A playoffs teams: Hockinson, Tumwater and Woodland. The Wildcats return eight starters on offense and seven on defense.
The Prep Proletariat says: “La Center may be one of the top 1A programs in Southwest Washington. Hockinson is building one of the top 2A programs in the state, especially on defense. HOCKINSON 34, LA CENTER 0”
