Two teams off to positive starts early in the season will face off Friday night in what should be a competitive nonregion matchup.
Greenbrier will play host to Richmond Academy in The Augusta Chronicle’s Game of the Week. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.
Each team has started 3-0 with dominating victories. Greenbrier has torched Butler, Josey and Harlem to the tune of a 113-15 combined score. Richmond Academy has shut down Westside, Aiken and Josey by a combined 112-31.
The Wolfpack are succeeding on the legs of star running back J.Q. Brown, who’s averaging nearly 150 yards per game to go with 10 touchdowns in three games. They also sport one of the area’s top-producing defenses since the beginning of last season.
The Musketeers boast an emerging standout in senior running back Malik Knowles, who already has 536 rushing yards in three games, along with talented athletes on defense.
Greenbrier leads the all-time series 8-3 and beat Richmond Academy 13-3 last season.
