Northmont's offense will try to keep South's defense off balance with a balanced attack.

Nick Renzetti will throw the ball deep to speedy receivers Bell and Brown to try to connect for big plays. By stretching Northmont's defense with long passes, South also hopes to set up its running game, with Prentiss leading the way.

The Thunderbolts' offense will try to keep South's defense off balance with a balanced attack. Belton has thrown for 4,160 yards and 32 touchdowns during his prep career, and the senior's primary targets are Lowery and Williams. Kenerly is a threat to break long runs if South commits too many players to its secondary.

•Last week: The Wildcats' passing game shredded Groveport's defense, as Renzetti completed 18 of 25 passes for 378 yards and four touchdowns, Brown had 10 catches for 202 yards and two touchdowns and Bell had four receptions for 154 yards and a touchdown.

The Thunderbolts survived a subpar performance through the air, as Belton was just 12-for-28 passing for 152 yards with two interceptions. Kenerly carried the load in the red zone, scoring touchdowns on runs of 7, 7 and 2 yards.
