Today's State Football Game

October 10, 2008

Dickinson (3-2, 2-1 Centennial)

at Johns Hopkins (3-2, 1-2)

Time: 7 p.m.

Site: Homewood Field

Outlook: The Blue Jays have cooled off, losing their past two games after opening the season 3-0. The Red Devils are looking for some consistency, having alternated wins and losses the first five weeks of the season. The Blue Jays need to protect the ball, beginning with quarterback Hewitt Tomlin, whose eight touchdown passes have been overshadowed by his eight interceptions. Freshman wide receiver Sam Wernick is starting to come on for Hopkins, averaging 20 yards a catch with three touchdowns, while Dickinson's Pat O'Connor leads the Red Devils with 35 catches and four touchdowns. One of these players could be the difference-maker.

Prediction: Johns Hopkins 27, Dickinson 23
