This game features preseason top ranked Dowling vs #3 Waukee. Both teams lost players due to graduation but are more than capable of reloading and develop a strong offense and stingy defense.

Waukee returns one of the best quarterbacks in the state with Mitch Randall and returning running back Alex Lindquist who ran for 788 yards last year. Dowling could potentially have a dual threat in the running back department, but that will depend on how well Gavin Williams has recovered from an injury early in fall camp. If he’s not 100%, the team will rely on Jack Meyer or Gaven Campbell to get most of the carries.

We think the game will ultimately come down to defense and Waukee has the edge with 33% of the defense back from last year which will be led by Joe Morrison and Arron Smith. We are confident that Dowling’s defense will be a strong defense, but they may have some growing pains in the initial game of the season.
