Central Cambria – Westmont Hilltop Preview

Written by: on Tuesday, October 14th, 2008

The Game: Central Cambria (6 AA) @ Westmont Hilltop (6 AA)

Date: Saturday, Oct. 18, 2008, from Price Field in Johnstown

2008 Record: Central Cambria (5-2), Westmont Hilltop (2-5)

About Central Cambria: The Red Devils have be-deviled their opposition – literally.  Central Cambria is on a four-game winning streak, during which they’ve outscored their opponents 161-64 (40-14 average).  Sandwiched in that streak is an impressive 27-0 shutout of now-6-1 Forest Hills.  And, most impressively, the Red Devils are doing this without a quality athlete in Jeff Wasilewski, who is out due to an injury.

Central Cambria’s ground attack averages 252 yards per game, and is led by Andrew O’Saben, who has run for 995 yards and 13 touchdowns on 113 carries.  Joining O’Saben in the backfield is Tim Myers and his 280 rush yards and five scores, and Max Michofsky, who has run for 126 yards and three additional touchdowns.

Myers doubles as the Devils’ quarterback, where he has thrown for 518 yards and four touchdowns.  His favorite target is Benjamin Ridgeley, who has caught 14 passes for 255 yards and three touchdowns.

Defensively, Central Cambria boasts a +14 turnover ratio, and three players have totaled four or more sacks apiece.

The Devils average 29.6 points per game while allowing 13.4 points per game.

About Westmont Hilltop: Appropriately nicknamed the Hilltoppers, Westmont hasn’t been on top of much lately when it comes to football, starting off 2008 with a 2-5 record and having their leading rusher each of the last two years (Chaz Merriman) transfer to Bishop McCort.  WH last won a District 6 football championship in 1989, a 20-year drought.

This edition of the Hilltoppers is led by senior athlete TJ Keklak.  He can run, pass, and catch passes.  The all-everything Keklak has run for 979 yards and nine touchdowns, thrown for 415 yards and two scores, and has pulled in nine passes for 159 yards and a touchdown.

Keklak is one of three potential quarterbacks at Westmont’s disposal.  Josh Swick leads the team with 537 passing yards and four touchdowns, and Casey Eckenrod will also attempt a pass or two every now and again.  Eckenrod has completed 6-of-8 passes for 115 yards and a touchdown.

As a team, the Hilltoppers average 174 yards rushing and 151 yards passing per game.

But the big problem for WH has been their defense, which has allowed 27 or more points in three of the Hilltoppers’ last four games, and allows an average of 24.3 points per game on the year.
