SPRINGHILL —The North Webster Knights are one of the hottest teams in the LHSAA.
Coach John Ware's team has won five of its last six games by an average score of 36-13.
Quarterback J. O. Smith (905 yards and 13 touchdowns on the year) and running back Devin White (308 yards and five touchdowns) have led the impressive Knight offense.
Last week White, just a freshman, got an opportunity to shine as he led North Webster with 146 yards and two touchdowns rushing, and also turned in a 60-yard interception return for touchdown.
This week the Knights will need them to do all they can as they face the 6-2 Evangel Eagles.
Evangel's passing attack is as potent as ever, and is run by yet another Duron—this one named Dakota who lead Northwest La. with 2,492 passing yards and 26 touchdowns.
