BERNE, Ind. (WANE) – Adams County bragging rights are on the line Friday night in Berne as South Adams hosts 1A No. 5 Adams Central in our Highlight Zone Game of the Week.
(5-0) Adams Central is coming off a 35-6 win over Heritage in Week 5. Drew Schultz rushed for 127 yards on 23 carries and had three touchdowns. Through five games Schultz has amassed 500 rushing yards with eight touchdowns for the Flying Jets.
(4-1) South Adams is coming off a dominant win of its own, beating Wes-Del 35-0. The Starfires defense is giving up just 6.6 points per game which is tied for seventh lowest in the state.
The Flying Jets had the edge in last year’s meeting beating the Starfires 40-3. Adams Central holds the series all-time at 23-16 over the past 30 years. However, South Adams’ 9-3 upset over Adams Central two years ago in sectionals still haunts Flying Jets fans.
NewsChannel 15’s Jessica Starbard will be live with South Adams head coach Grant Moser Friday at 6:00PM.
