  1. Southport quarterback Eddie Schott

Schott, a senior, has gained national attention, landing on MaxPreps leaderboards as high as #2 in passing yards for the entire country. The 6-foot-5-inch Ball State commit is an absolute gunslinger, throwing 1,691 yards and 22 touchdowns so far this season. Schott could easily take advantage of a very inexperienced Panther defense.

  1. Defensive Injuries

It’s no secret that the Bloomington South defense is banged up. Senior linebacker Charlie Abel left last week’s game early and remains in a sling. Not only is Abel out, but junior cornerback John Law is out with a knee injury and senior defensive end Avery Thompson is playing through a bad knee.

  1. Thiery on Fire

Bloomington South junior running back Maveric Thiery has been phenomenal. Expectations are extremely high for the running back position at South as former Panther star Kristian Pechac graduated last year and is now playing at Indiana University. Thiery, however, has blown away expectations rushing for nearly 300 yards and averaging just under 10 yards per carry last week versus Terre Haute South.
