Class A State Title on the line tonight in Memorial Stadium. Televised by NETV. Bruntz and I are in the box to provide our thoughts on the game.
Here are the players to keep an eye on if you're watching:
Casey Sayles - Tight end/defensive end/long snapper. He's close to a Nebraska offer. Watch him work on the Mustangs' defensive line. North will run behind him quite a bit.
Calvin Strong - Running back. This kid could be special if he continues to grow and develop as a runner. Powerful guy for a fairly small back.
Michael Decker - Left Tackle. Sophomore. This guy has great size. Coach Martin is very high on him.
Zach Martin - One of the best quarterbacks in the state.
Clay Fisher - Running back. Curious where this Fisher could end up on the field for college. Strong athlete as well.
Isaac Aakre - Quarterback. Very versatile athlete. Essentially a running back for Millard North.
Nick DeLuca - Linebacker. Holds an offer from Ohio. Some think he's on a similar level to Josh Banderas.

That was a HECK of a catch by Sayles. I'm sure Husker scouts took notice.
