This is rivalry night for area high school football with three marquee matchups for local fans.
Obviously, the main attraction is Boyle County at Danville, a game that has become one of the state's highlight games. But don't forget that Harrodsburg is also hosting Mercer County and Lincoln County is hosting Garrard County.
So here are 10 things to watch for in these highlight games tonight:
1. Will Kelvin Turner and Charles Penix, Danville's dynamic one-two punch at running back, be able to find openings in the Boyle defense? Boyle coach Chuck Smith is a master at taking away the run. If Turner and Penix combine for 200 yards, Danville likely will win. If they are held to 125 or less, Boyle likely will win.
2. Will Brandon Smith be able to find openings in Danville's secondary? A year ago Smith was a sophomore quarterback and probably considered the weak link in Boyle's offense. Now he's the man for the Rebels and stopping him has to be Danville's priority. If he throws for 200 yards or more, Boyle likely will win. If he's under 125, look for the Ads to likely win.
