In Fairbury’s 8-1 regular season in 2016, the lone blemish was a 14-13 setback to Falls City. In our Striv Game-of-the-Week, the Class C-1, No. 8 Jeffs get a chance to avenge that loss on Friday.
The Jeffs have been solid in a pair of opening wins averaging nearly 480 yards of offense with senior running back Jacob Johnson averaging 208.5 yards per contest and an mind boggling 16.7 yards per rush. Quarterback Adam Wasserman has thrown just three incompletions in two games.
The Tigers, who had a four year playoff streak snapped in 2016, come in 1-1. Seniors Austin Babb, Rudy Vrtiska and junior quarterback Collin Cook lead a strong running game that put up nearly 300 yards in their opening win over Southern.
