PV faces uphill battle

marie@pvdemocrat.com — The task is a tall one Friday night as the Pauls Valley Panthers host the No. 7 team in Class 3A, Plainview Indians. Plainview is one of eight teams in Class 3A that is undefeated on the season.

Since an early season win over Tuttle 19-14, the Indians have been on a roll both offensively and defensively. Offensively they are averaging 53 points a game while the defense has only allowed a touchdown or less in the last seven games.

Leading the Plainview offense is senior running back Austin Carrera. Carrera has rushed for 1,195 yards this season and has 25 touchdowns. The speedy back had a career night last week with 222 yards on 18 carries against Dickson with 5 touchdowns. He had another five-touchdown night against Sulphur where he had 193 yards on 23 carries.

Carrera is a huge weapon but not the only one on the team as quarterback Taber Jordan is a dual threat player that PV will also have to worry about. Jordan had a career night against the Panthers last season and hasn’t been too shabby this season.

The senior has almost 1,000 yards in offense 624 through the air and 380 on the ground. He is 41-of-72 with three interceptions and 9 touchdowns. He also has 7 rushing touchdowns.

Jordan’s favorite target when the Indians do pass is Steven Roberts and Gage Kennedy. Roberts has 214 yards receiving and Kennedy 157 and both have three touchdowns each.

The Indian offense averages almost 300 yards rushing per game and around 90 yards per game through the air.

The defense has been stellar with Luke Manley and Chris Hamilton leading the charge. Manley has 52 tackles on the year while Hamilton is not far behind with 50. Cameron Hannah anchors the defense line with 39 tackles on the year.

In the secondary, Brandon Locke and Steven Roberts both have two interceptions each.

Ball control will be a key for the Panthers to upset the Indians. PV has been turnover prone in their losses but only had one last week in a win over Atoka.

Pauls Valley and Plainview will kick off at 7:30 p.m. at Thompson Field.

Pauls Valley has one more home game next week against Madill where they will honor the Panther seniors.
