WEST FORSYTH AT CENTENNIAL

When, where:  Tonight, 7:30 p.m., at The Fortress in Roswell.

Records, rankings: West is 2-2, 0-1 in Region 6-AAAAAA and unranked in Class 6A; Centennial is 1-3, 1-0 and unranked in Class 6A.

Series history: West leads 3-0.

Last meeting: West won 40-6 in 2012.

What to know: West had a field day against Centennial last season en route to a 40-6 win. Although the Wolverines are without many of the playmakers from last year’s team, the margin of victory likely won’t change.

Running back Trevor O’Brien has been constant for West throughout the season, as he rushed for 105 yards on 22 carries last week. Quarterback Hampton McConnell did his part with 110 passing yards and 75 rushing yards in the 31-17 home loss to Alpharetta.

The Knights are a pass-happy offense that averages 237 yards through the air and 48.5 rushing yards. The West defense has been susceptible to the pass, but Centennial may not have the athletes to challenge the secondary.
