Both teams enter the game 1-1. Lewis County dropped its season opener to No. 6 University, 28-7, and then came back to beat Preston, 48-24, a week ago. Hoover earned a 40-35 upset victory over Scott in week one but dropped a tough 24-18 decision to Chapmanville last week, losing four fumbles in the second half.
Both games were home games for the Huskies.
"The kids have been great and working really hard," Meyer said. "The last two games we could be 0-2 or we could be 2-0. We are sitting at 1-1 though, and both teams we played were very good football teams."
Both coaches like the two-game series between the two schools and see the benefits.
"Playing a Triple-A school like Lewis County has its advantages because they are heck of a football team and the team gets geared up for that," Meyer said. "Plus, its bonus points toward the playoffs. It's a good situation."
"We picked up Hoover for a two-year deal," Vincent said. "Even though we are a Triple-A school and they are Double-A, the school size is similar. Plus the schools aren't that far apart. It's not a bad trip."
Hoover junior tailback Shaun Dotson is having a solid season so far. He is currently second in the area in rushing with 298 yards and three touchdowns on 50 carries. Dotson also has 106 yards receiving and another score.
Lewis County only returns four starters but is led by senior fullback Mark Metzgar, a 1,100-yard rusher last year, who is coming off a 156-yard performance on the ground last week against Preston. Senior Skylar Carlton leads the Minutemen offense at quarterback after being converted from wide receiver last year. Seniors Jordan Hall and Tyler Gump are three-year starters on the line.
