Controlling the clock and maximizing the possessions is the only thing on the mind of Southmont head coach Desson Hannum.

“Tri-West (Hendricks) has athletes at a number of different positions.” Hannum said. “We want to try and make them one-dimensional as much as possible.”

For the Mounties, they come into Friday’s matchup 1-5 on the year and 1-3 in the Sagamore Athletic Conference. Hannum said that his guys are focusing on the intangibles and getting better as a team.

Dual-threat quarterback Hunter Chadwick has totaled 525 passing yards and 202 rushing yards on the season. The sophomore has thrown for six touchdowns and has rushed for two. Junior running back Kyle Nunemaker has been responsible for most of the rushing duties as he has 75 carries for 430 yards to go with three touchdowns.

Senior wideout Kaleb Swick has 244 receiving yards on 13 receptions and three touchdowns to lead the receiving corp. Defensively, Reese Vancleave leads the Mounties in tackles with 53 total.

Tri-West Hendricks is 5-1 on the year and a perfect 4-0 in conference play. Their senior QB Jake Hill has already surpassed 1,500 passing yards with 1,544. The 6-foot-3 signal caller has thrown 16 touchdowns, seven of which have been to Peyton Hendershot, and features a 116.1 QB rating.

Derek Lucas has 363 rushing yards and three touchdowns on 60 carries to lead the rushing attack for the Bruins.

Southmont travels to Lizton for the 7 p.m. kickoff.
