The Santa Fe Christian Eagles (2-0) will be flying south for this week’s matchup hosted by the La Jolla Vikings (1-1).
It was a close game when these two teams played each other in Week 3 last season, but the Eagles were able to come out on top 16-14.
The Vikings are coming off a win last week against Mission Bay, 34-13, looking to advance their record with another win.
The Vikings have a young quarterback this season but don’t underestimate him just because of his grade.
Sophomore Jackson Stratton threw for 136 yards in his first game of the season against The Bishop’s School. When he’s not passing the ball, Stratton will most likely be handing it off to junior running back Max Smith, who ran for 128 yards in Week 1.
Santa Fe Christian, coached by Jon Wallace, will be looking to continue its winning streak and remain undefeated this season.
The Eagles have a very strong run game, rushing for over 680 yards so far in their first two games.
Leading in rushing yards for SFC is Stephen Britton with over 220 yards and he is closely followed by Kian Hogan and Blake Weeks, who have around 150 rushing yards each.
The Vikings’ defense will need to keep a close eye on the Eagles’ run game if they want a victory again this week.
To see if the Eagles remain undefeated or if the Vikings improve their record, tune in to the Prep Pigskin Report Friday night at 11 p.m.
