Boasting outrageous statistical dominance on both sides of the line of scrimmage, the visiting Dragons (10-1, not counting three forfeit losses) and host Cougars (11-0) square-off in an ultra-high profile attraction in Fair Oaks for what may very well be one of the best playoff battles this season, in any division.
No other team in the playoffs has more team speed than the Dragons. Senior QB Derek Shelton has engineered a flashy, high octane offense with poise and proficiency. With Shelton blending a premium passing attack with an explosive run game, the Dragons average 46 ppg.
Like Sac, Del Campo’s punishing defense has overwhelmed and dominated its opponents, allowing less than seven points per game. Linebackers Hunter, Ish Cisneros, Ray Aguilar and Markey, and DB Joseph all fly to the football. They’ve teamed for 383 Tackles, with 43 Sacks and 14 Interceptions, including 8 by DB Brouhns.
