Tucker County coach A.J. Rapp talks to his team after its win over Pocahontas County last Friday.
"In order to slow down their offense, we have to contain Nestor," Tygarts Valley coach Joseph Arbogast coach said. "If we let him run all over the field, we're going to be in trouble."
Running backs Austin Zirk and Mikhail Lewis will also provide strong play out for Tucker County.
"We're going to have to run the ball and run our offense, because Tygarts Valley play several different types of defenses" Rapp said. "If we do that, I think we will be in good shape."
Tygarts Valley (0-1) is coming off a 40-8 loss at Pendleton County last week.
The Bulldogs are led by quarterback Brandon Pritt and running back Andrew Torres.
Pritt threw for 124 yards last week, while Torres had 90 yards rushing and a touchdown.
"We were pretty pleased with our offense last week," Arbogast said. "We just need to come into the game and run our offense."
