Game Preview: Hamilton v.O'Connor

The season is finally here. Power Hamilton travels west to take on O'Connor

Game: Chandler (Az.) Hamilton @ Phoenix (Az.) Sandra Day O'Connor, 7 P.M.

O'Connor Players to Watch: OT Jamison Pruitt, OT Nick Florio, QB Bailin Markridge, S Oscar Mills

Keys to an O'Connor Win: Let's be honest, no one outside of the Eagles' locker room thinks they can win. With those expectations, OC has nothing to lose. Go out, have fun and play hard. It's early and Hamilton has some holes to fill. Inevitably, there will be typical early season mistakes and OC must capitalize. Expect Coach Rodriguez to try and slow the game down. Hamilton is strongest along the defensive line but the Eagles have some size and talent up front to counter.

Hamilton Players to Watch: DE Caleb Peart, DT Garrett Rand, RB Kyeler Burke, DB Jaquan Mayberry, DB Trey Robinson, RB David DeSilva, QB James Sosinski, DB Morris Kroma, LB Tristen Vance, RB Rico Tipton, WR Brandon Krcilek

Keys to a Hamilton Win: The Huskies are the heavy favorite but they can't just expect O'Connor to lay down, they are going to fight. Hamilton can't overlook their opponent tonight. Saying Hamilton graduated a lot of players is an understatement. They are breaking in a whole new secondary on defense and whole backfield and offensive line on offense, those kids need to perform when the lights turn on.

Match up to Watch: Hamilton DE Caleb Peart has been getting after QBs for years. O'Connor OT Jamison Pruitt is one of the state's top OLs. Recommended Stories
