Legacies are left on Thanksgiving

(Continued)

Pentucket has had an up-and-down season with undersized offensive and defensive lines. However, the Sachems might boast the best player in the conference in Cody Rothwell. The power tailback has rushed for 1,406 yards and 18 touchdowns in 10 games. He follows great Pentucket backs like Nolan Dragon and Nate Bunnell. My guess is, a couple of years from now, we’ll include Rothwell’s name in the discussion as we mention the next great Pentucket tailback.

The pick: Pentucket 37, Triton 14

Georgetown at Manchester Essex

Georgetown’s season will be remembered for injuries to its top players. Early in the season, Georgetown lost star quarterback Niko Edwards and leading rusher Tim Dillon. For a small school, it’s difficult to overcome one injury, let alone two to the best two players. A win at Manchester Essex would certainly put a positive spin on the season for Georgetown coach Paul Sobolewski. Manchester Essex coach Mike Athanas will be looking to finish his season with wins in two of his last three.

The pick: Manchester Essex 22, Georgetown 6

Last week’s record: 3-1

Overall record: 32-13
