St. John’s is coming off a big Midwest athletic Conference win — a 20-18 defeat of Versailles at Stadium Park — as the Blue Jays host MAC foe New Bremen tonight.
Jefferson is looking for its own big win tonight as they invade co-Northwest Conference front-runner Ada.
Jefferson head man Bub Lindeman and his coaching staff have seen the high-flying Bulldogs (8-0, 6-0 NWC) up close and personal in his three seasons.
This might be the most complete one.
“They still spread you out with a lot of receivers but they have the running back more involved this year in Kellen Decker. He has 1,357 yards rushing and 19 touchdowns, so he is a legitimate threat,” Lindeman noted. “Throw in another typical Ada quarterback in Mason Acheson (6-3, 215; 2,213 yards passing) that is big and mobile with a nice arm. Plus, though their receivers aren’t the fastest guys out there, they are very quick and effective on the perimeter; you don’t want these guys to get an edge. This is a typical Ada offense but it is much more balanced between the run and the pass; that is scary.”
