Air Raid on Display

Wayne County & Williamsburg passing games highlight today's match-up

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

An air raid show will be on display today at Williamsburg’s Rose-Stanfill Stadium when Class 3A power Wayne County will pay a visit.

The game will be headlined by Williamsburg quarterback Dalton Sizemore and Wayne County quarterback Tyler Guffey — two of the best signal-callers in the state.

Sizemore has passed for 865 yards and five touchdowns while also rushing for more than 200 yards on the ground along with six touchdowns.

Guffey has been just as good — throwing for 761 yards and nine touchdowns while running for 190 yards on the ground and five touchdowns.

“These two are so similar in so many ways,” Williamsburg coach Jerry Herron said. “Both quarterbacks can both throw the ball well and run with the ball, and both teams can run the ball as well.

“Like I said, we’re both very similar, except they may have a few more numbers and a little bit bigger,” he added. “It should be a good game.”

Herron said the key to his team winning is simple — “we’ve got to get off to a good start and not make any mistakes on special teams. They kick the ball off hard and we’ve got to be ready for that.”

Herron’s main concern is Guffey, though.

The way he goes, his team goes, but Herron was also quick to point out the unbeaten Cardinals (3-0) are dangerous running the ball.

“The Guffey kid can flat out play,” he admitted. “He’s dangerous throwing and running with the ball. They can also hurt you running with the ball.

“I watched them against South Laurel, and they had a hard time getting anything going running the ball mostly because South had a lot of people playing upfront, and they had to pass the ball,” Herron added. “So we know just how good and dangerous they are.”

Williamsburg comes into the game with hopes of improving to 3-1 before entering an open week in Week Four.

“We know we are facing a very good team,” Herron said. “The kids are excited with the opportunity of going against a very good team and games like this will only make us better.”
