Northview Titans (6-AAAAA)
• Coach: Chad Davenport
• Record: 1-0
• Last week: Beat Meadowcreek 35-0
Duluth Wildcats (7-AAAAA)
• Coach: Corey Jarvis
• Record: 1-0
• Last week: Beat Archer 28-24
Anfornee Stewart turned in one of the top passing performances in Duluth history last week.
Head coach Corey Jarvis is hoping the senior can have similar numbers Friday against Northview.
Stewart was 19 of 27 passing for 353 yards with four touchdowns in the Wildcats’ season-opening win over Archer. Stewart’s top target was Myles Campbell, who had eight catches for 239 yards and three TDs.
“He had a good game,” Jarvis said. “He made the offense go. He did a good job running the ball, too.”
Northview is coming off an impressive win over Meadowcreek. The Titans put up 35 points with the help of their quarterback and running back tandem.
“The quarterback and running back are pretty good,” Jarvis said. “The quarterback is a good athlete who throws it well. The running back runs the ball hard. He’s a straight down hill runner.”
Northview’s Terence Upshaw had three TDs in last week’s game, while quarterback Evan Jacks had two scores. The 35 points scored was the most since 2009 for Northview, which has won just three games the previous two seasons.
“They’re an up-and-coming program,” Jarvis said. “Coach (Chad) Davenport has done a great job with them. Just looking at them physically, you can tell they have been in the weight room.”
Defensive lineman Nick Rea will miss the game after getting a concussion in last week’s game.
