The Raiders are led by running back/defensive back D’Andre Drummond-Mayrie, who last week committed to play his college football at UNH, and quarterback Mike Milano (393 passing yards in three games).
“Their running back is already going to UNH and that’s impressive,” Hartford SAID. “But they also have a great line and they are always a very smart team. And their defense is tough.”
The Warriors know they will have to put up points, which they struggled to do two weeks ago against BC High.
“They have a lot of skill players that are fast and strong,” Eikenberry said. “But we think that our offense is ready to go this week and our defense is always ready to play.”
The all-time Thanksgiving series between the two teams is tied 20-20-1, but it is last season’s thrilling come-from-behind Andover win that the Raiders will be out to avenge.
“I would say so,” Sutliff said. “I know we would be out for revenge if we had lost that game. We know it will be a tough game, but we feel like we can win.”
