Key players/Stats:

Quentin Goode: 1,802 passing yards with 17 touchdown passes and five interceptions.

Tiqwai Hayes has 1,589 rushing yards on 215 attempts for 19 touchdowns. The leading receiver is Cyair Clark, he has 602 yards on 30 catches and five touchdowns.

Offensive keys to winning: Aliquippa needs to establish a run game to control the ball and keep it away from Bishop McDevitt. With a huge offensive line, this shouldn’t be an issue for the Quips.

Defensive Keys to winning: The Quips need to stop the passing game especially Freshman quarterback Stone Saunders. Saunders has 2,798 yards passing for 43 touchdowns and 4 interceptions as a Freshman. They also need to stop Old Dominion commit Mario Easterly and running back Marquese Williams. The Crusaders have scored 615 points in 13 games and have only given up 84.
