Morenci will win. They won't be able to handle morenci's size. Their line is one thing, but their running backs are huge.

Haven't seen Morenci but according to their roster they aren't exceptionally sized.

Their one big back is healthy sized but his yardage isn't scaring anyone. Other backs have decent yardage but their listed size is not tremendous.

I have seen TPA. They will ram the ball down your throat and they have the size in #42 (almost a 1000 yards rushing) to do it. Their defense may make it a bit tough on thos running backs.

Sould be a good game. If TPA keeps it close I will take TPA over Morenci in a grind it out game

Guess I don't know what "exceptionally" sized means to you but Morenci has huge lineman. 260, 270, 280. And several of them. TP has one player their size. TP will not be able to move the ball consistently enough to win this game. Their offense is pretty "white bread". Not much flash and dash. Their defense is good, but Morenci will just pound them with their size and wear them down. I think Morenci wins by at least 14.

I agree with you HSFB.  Over 300 yards per game on the ground and Ogas, Ruedas and Lockmiller are all averaging over 7 yards per carry.  They will be tough to stop.

Agreed. Good size. But not exceptionally sized for the competition. Example-SCA has 285,285,240,240 and were smoked in the last round. In other words, a couple big boys dont make a team and from top to bottom their overall size isnt much different from other competitive teams.

They may whip TPA like a rented mule - dont know much about Morenci. They may be the best team in D5

But if youre saying that Morenci will push TPA up and down the field because of 3 good siize linemen I dont think so. Morenci best bring more to the game than that.

I take TPA 6

Re: Tempe Prep vs Morenci 


I've seen TP play this year, very good team and they will ram the ball down your throat until you stop them which most teams this year haven't been able to do. I finally got to see Morenci play last weekend, very athletic and thier line is one of the best I've seen all season. TP has lots of playoff experience and this time of the year is a lot different than the season. Morenci should win this one but don't count out TP, this is Morenci's first real test of the playoffs and if they take TP lightly it could be a long night for Morenci. I still take Morenci by 7 and believe it will be a great game if both teams bring it on the field. Good Luck to both teams they have had a great season.

Re: Tempe Prep vs Morenci 


While it's true that SCA got hammered by Yuma Catholic, TP lost to that same SCA team that took that beating. Tempe Prep is a solid team but I just don't believe they will be able to move the ball on Morenci unless they throw it and that goes against what they do well. I agree being big does not make you a good football team. But if those bigs are also athletes it makes a huge difference. Think this will be a close game for the first half or so, but after that TP will get worn down by the constant pounding from the Morenci line and Morenci wins by 14.
