The Watterson High School football team earned its most lopsided win on the way to the Division III state title a year ago when it won 72-0 at Greenville in Week 6 of the regular season.

After the Green Wave went 3-7 a year ago, they'll again take a struggling team into their matchup with the Eagles on Friday, Sept. 30, at Hagely Field.

Greenville is 1-4 after defeating Paulding 27-20 on Sept. 23. The Green Wave were outscored by a combined 156-46 over their first four games.

After edging Cincinnati Winton Woods 31-28 on Sept. 16 at Centennial, the Eagles (2-3) lost 28-3 on Sept. 23 at Cincinnati LaSalle.

According to coach Dan Bjelac, Watterson signed a two-year contract several years ago with Greenville that ends after this season.

"Last year was the first time we've played them, and they were struggling," Bjelac said. "They were young and didn't have a lot of seniors. I remember that even their quarterback was a captain and he was a junior."

Through four games, quarterback Jacob Burk was 54-for-103 passing for 651 yards with three touchdowns. During a 60-23 loss to Findlay on Sept. 9, he threw touchdown passes to Storm Wolter, Zane Mize and Alec Watkins.

Burk also threw for three touchdowns against Paulding.

Watterson scored its only points against LaSalle on a 36-yard field goal by Brennan Clegg in the second quarter. The Eagles were held to 39 yards rushing on 25 attempts. Junior quarterback Andy Elberson completed 15 of 27 passes for 130 yards with two interceptions.

Senior defensive back Erik Oman and senior running back Isaiah Murray both missed the LaSalle game because of injuries but could return for the Greenville game. Sophomore defensive back Cody Calhoun has been out since sustaining an injury during a 26-24 loss to Cuyahoga Falls Walsh Jesuit on Sept. 9.
