Millsap Bulldogs (0-2)

Game notes: Despite Windthorst’s 12 returning starters (five offense/seven defense), the Trojans are still characterized as a young team. After more than a decade as a perennial playoff team, including deep postseason runs in the 2010 and 2011 seasons, the Trojans are trying to return to that form after a first-round exit last season and a couple of losses the past two weeks to less-than-powerhouse squads.

As goes quarterback Chandler King so goes the Trojan offense, as the junior is thus far responsible for more than 85 percent of the yardage production. Opposing defenses would do well to pay extra attention to the signal caller, if not assign a permanent spy to follow his every move.

Windthorst has a balanced attack overall in terms of rushing attempts vs. passes, but have been prone to errant aerials, with five interceptions vs. a lone TD pass through three contests. The Class 1A team has decent size, not only in its line but at some of the skill positions, as well.

Though the offense struggled against Dublin a couple of weeks ago, the defense had a relatively good outing, and the staff is hopeful the Millsap defenders will continue to warm to the 4-2-5 scheme the Bulldogs adopted in the offseason.
