“We have concerns on the defensive side of the ball and offensively, we’ll have to see how some kids are,” BP head coach Chad Gimbel said.

BP, which is ranked No. 8 in Class ‘A’ threw for 278 yards and ran for 76 yards and LeCenter, which is ranked No. 10 in Class ‘A’, ran for 144 yards and threw for 204 yards.
