LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Trinity at Male, an easy pick for our Touchdown Friday Night Game of the Week. The last two Kentucky 6A State Champs.
"It's another big game, wow, and we've had several, and this is another big one," Trinity head coach Bob Beatty said.
They have played some classics, including a 37-34 Rocks win in the regular season in 2016. Trinity won the 2016 6A State Championship.
"The last seven or eight games have been real competitive, and the games have just gone down the wire," Male head coach Chris Wolfe said. Male won the 2015 6A State Championship.
The Dogs had beaten Trinity four out of the last five meetings before last seasons Rocks win.
"Obviously Manual is the traditional rival, but at this point, there's no doubt that Trinity's been the dominant force for the last 16, 17 years in the state and as a competitive person, you want to beat the best," Wolfe said.
Trinity (3-0) already has big wins over Carmel and Warren Central from Indiana and Moeller from Ohio. The Rocks are averaging 37 points a game.
Male has wins over Floyd Central (IN), Ballard and Doss and is averaging 39 points a game.
The Rocks and Dogs kickoff at 7:30 p.m. on Friday at Maxwell Field.
