RB Jadyn Tate is the heart and soul of the NEG Rams team…As he goes, pretty much goes Northeast Guilford..They will need his ball-control style running tonight to be effective against the WC Lions…WC will be very tough at their place, and West Charlotte comes out of that hard-edged 4-A/3-A Conference….Tristan Tucker to led NEG at QB, while Ashton Timberlake gives NEG a proven threat in both the receiving and kick-return game…Timberlake can make things happen and NEG will need his to establish good field position on their offensive possessions…
