8-Man Semifinal Playoff Preview

Four 8-Man teams have battled their way to the UNI-Dome.  Iowa Preps breaks down the teams, the difference makers, and who we feel will be playing for the championship.  Find out more now from IowaPreps.com!

MMC vs. Exira/EH-K
Exira/EH-K Offense: Beating a quality team like Glidden-Ralston twice in the season proved extremely difficult but this group was able to do that in order to clinch a spot in the semifinals. Their offense relies heavily on the ground game with Trey Sander, Nick Peppers, and Drew Peppers combined to rush for over 3,500 yards.  This three headed monster puts a ton of pressure on opponents and it shows every time this group takes the field. 
Key Player: Trey Sander
MMC Offense: Few expected them to get here but MMC has proven capable of beating a lot of quality teams as they stand at 12-0 with an offense pouring in 54 points a night.  Balance has helped them post those huge numbers as quarterback Tanner Utesch has worked extremely well with running back Andrew Hoefling.  Each is capable of making a play any time they touch the football. 
Key Player: Andrew Hoefling

Who do we feel will be battling it out for the 8-Man State title?
