Central, Chaparral have multiple weapons
Comparing Central and Chaparral is a challenge. The teams had no common opponents.
Second-year Wolverines coach John Vogt believes in a balanced offensive attack with running back David Zimmerman carrying the bulk load and wide receiver Jordan Serena quarterback Jerry Slota’s favorite target.
Chaparral prefers to run to left tackle Jack Harris’ side; according to rivals.com, the 6-foot-6 Harris is the second-best recruit out of Colorado this season.
Central believes it’s tough to cover both wide receiver Blaine Jackson and slotback Clay Kame. If teams try to, that should open up Nolan Curtis and the running game.

Central: Holden Reed, Jr., runs and passes well; 95-194, 1,011 yards passing, 5 TDs, 12 INTs; 61-195 rushing
