Running back Cameron Kitson leads Fairfield’s I-formation option attack with 130 carries for 1,268 yards and 20 touchdowns. He’s also the team’s leading receiver with 19 catches for 226 yards and two TDs. Quarterback Kyle Mast is 63 of 118 through the air for 873 yards, 11 TDs and three interceptions. Lucas Miller (63 carries, 431 yards, eight TDs) and Tony Zook (80 carries, 407 yards, seven TDs) also add formidable options in the running game.

“They were a 2A team that moved up to 3A this last year, and they’ve had some success,” Hartman said. “They kind of remind us of ourselves. They’ve played young guys for a few years and gotten them valuable game experience and allowed them to develop. That experience has shown in that way they’ve played. They run the ball well and play aggressive defense. They don’t make a lot of mistakes, so you have to play a complete game when you play them.”

Tailback Cody Hicks leads the Braves’ offense with 178 carries for 1,460 yards and 19 TDs. QB Kyle Dinn has completed 70 of 109 passes for 795 yards, seven TDs and 10 interceptions. K.J. Walton has been Dinn’s favorite target with 30 grabs for 272 yards and five TDs. Trevor Hagan adds 19 catches for 238 yards and a TD to the foray.

“We have to be able to throw the ball,” Hartman said. “We can’t rely on our run game the entire time. We have to play good run defense, which can be said for about every team in the state of Indiana. This year we’ve gotten gashed at times, and we’re doing everything we can to shore that up.”

ROCHESTER (7-2) at PERU (4-5)

The Bengal Tigers have lost five in a row after a 4-0 start, but coach Bob Prescott believes the competition seen in the last five weeks have been good preparation for the postseason.
