Both teams rely on physicality near the line of scrimmage, which has sparked the rushing success of Bangor’s Dane Johnson (1,257 yards, 18 TDs) and Oxford Hills’ Davis Turner (622 yards, eight TDs) and Malik Geiger (376 yards, three TDs). “They’re as good up front as anyone we’ve played,” said Hackett. “They’re big, strong and aggressive. They’re proud football players.” How much the game will be affected by wet field conditions remains to be determined. “Thank God we can run the football,” said Hackett.” We’ve got a 240-pound fullback [Langston Hamer-Nagle] and a tailback [Johnson] who’s 190, and they’ve got big backs, too...

She will make you smile and laugh one minute and then the next she is racing down practicing her aerial dribbling." In other replies, Hediger also used "fiercely competitive," "skilled,"...
