Week 1 Pickerington Central vs Wendell Phillips
 
The defending champions will take on another championship team from Chicago. Should be a very good game with plenty of D1 players on ESPN... This a toss up

It will be an interesting game. Arguably the best D coordinator in Ohio will be tasked to keep Wendell from scoring as little as possible. There will be no game tapes exchanged. Wendell draws a lot of top talent and there is little info out to tell just who is in the fold or transferred in. I think the Tigers need to hold WP to less than 17 to win the game. I just don't know if they have the fire power to score more than 3 TDs. I know they have a great running QB but last years line and TEs are gone. This years PC teams remind me of a lot of the teams in years past, ridiculously good D and average Offense. I hope the Tigers can represent Ohio and OCC but I am a bit nervous.

PickOne 08-20-18 07:23 PM

CalPreps, using the matchup projector, has it 28-17 Pick Central on a neutral field. The game will be played at Otterbein University, in Columbus area. So PC drives an hour, and WP drives 6 hours. PC is solid everywhere but in offensive line and tight ends. Huge unknowns...I have no idea what PC has to fill in the O line and tight ends. If 100% new O line and new tight ends can open holes to run and give time to throw, PC will be fine. If not...

PickOne 08-20-18 07:30 PM

Anyone know what PC has for O line? Losing 5 multi-year starters that averaged 6’ and 300 lbs and 2 D1 tight ends seems like a major problem. Great QB and RBs and WRs...but need holes to run thru and time to throw.

Technically a neutral field. Does it really take you an hour to get from P-town to Otterbein? Maybe with a Lyme or Bird Scooter.

Read the article, wow. Appears to be a lot of talent on that team.

Sunday 11:30am on ESPN. I will be watching. May have to drive over and catch the game live.

Pick Central reloads every year. I think Central will have their hands full for the first game of the year, but that's been their MO since 2007.

Central may have lost some talent, but that's every year. What people outside of the program don't notice is that PC plays sophmores and juniors every year. They constantly rotate their roster in.

Game day!

Go Tigers!

Good luck to PC , sin or lose they represent CO really well . They have some great pieces ( D-line QB , and speed ) and will compete hard . On paper though this team may have the advantage when PC lack of overall experience is factored in . Game closer to home should help and the staffs experience in this type of match-up .

Tigers get props for stepping up to the challenge here. If they lose it will benefit them down the road . Good luck Tigers

Wendell Phillips 6 0.

WarriorOne 08-26-18 12:08 PM

Do these teams play defense??

brian1227 08-26-18 12:13 PM

No.

Himmy Jendrix 08-26-18 12:15 PM

Pc will wear them down in the late second half. They are more physical for sure. It will take its toll later on.

LICKING COUNTY FAN 08-26-18 12:25 PM

Central up 14-12 :13 left in the first.
Pickerington just missed a diving touchdown, after getting a turnover.

Saltlife 08-26-18 12:31 PM

Wendell has a horrible defensive scheme. PC looking good on O suprised defense has been pushed around. Offense establishing dominance. they running big d linemen in on o, will see if they wear out second half

LICKING COUNTY FAN 08-26-18 12:56 PM

21-18 Pickerington 1:47 2nd

Himmy Jendrix 08-26-18 01:03 PM

Phillips fell asleep with that last turnover

brian1227 08-26-18 01:04 PM

Horrible qb awareness.

brian1227 08-26-18 01:10 PM

35 18 wendell phillips is awful.

wghfan 08-26-18 01:11 PM

What a disastrous last couple of minutes of the half, for the Phillips squad

Buckeye Elite 08-26-18 01:11 PM

This got ugly that last 3 minutes before half

BoomerSooner 08-26-18 01:13 PM

That one fan yelling "overrated" must feel really good right about now.

Those kind of people are insufferable at high school games.

Probably a Pick North fan...

Himmy Jendrix 08-26-18 01:23 PM

PC's defense grabs 3 or 4 turnovers in the first half. This might sound crappy, but I don't think PC's defense is playing well. PC definitely more physical but not playing great. I also know this is just week one.

PC offense is sick. I love when they score at will. Hopefully it will continue..

Pickeringtonsports 08-26-18 01:25 PM

Wendell Phillips is a really good team. However, not sure how conditioned they are. It’s extremely hot and their defense looked spent in the first quarter. Their QB has been getting hit hard and often. Will be surprised if he finishes the game. PC gets the ball first in the second half. If we score a TD, this game is over.

Himmy Jendrix 08-26-18 01:36 PM

I almost snot bubbled laughed when I heard the TV announcer state PC is a well disciplined team........

Honor&Glory 08-26-18 01:40 PM

Is defense optional in Illinois?

D4fan 08-26-18 01:45 PM

Running clock?

LICKING COUNTY FAN 08-26-18 01:50 PM

49-18 :48 3rd
