“My biggest concern coming into this game ... we have given up 75 yards of passing in six games. I don’t look at that as a positive. We just haven’t played people who could throw the ball very well. To do that through six weeks, then have to [play Heights], we have no idea how our secondary is going to react. I think we have good kids back there and I think they’ve played well, but they haven’t been tested.”
Heights beat Northwestern 57-21 last year. Hendryx is 2-4 against the Huskies.

The Kats welcome the Berries to Walter Cross Field for senior night, a fact that is sure to only intensify the rivalry matchup.
“One thing I know for sure against Logan is they’re going to come and play as physical as anyone we’ve played,” Colby said. “No matter who the coach has been since I’ve been here, Logansport is one of the most physical, hard-hitting games we play. It’s how we respond to that physicality that’s going to go a long way to determining the outcome of the game.”
Logansport is led by junior quarterback Ryan Shrock, who has rushed for 308 yards and nine TDs this season while completing 12 of 46 passes for 121 yards, two TDs and four interceptions.
“They run a tough offense to defend in the option,” Colby said. “You better have your responsibilities down. They don’t run a ton of plays, maybe six to eight, but they have 20 formations that they run those plays out of. So, we have to know our job and responsibility on every formation. We need to read our keys, and we had a good week with that. Hopefully we can slow their quarterback down. He’s not big — he wrestled 132 [pounds] last year, but is very fast and runs the option well.”
