GAME OF THE WEEK: Avenal at Kennedy, sponsored by PRIME TIME SPORTS

Week 13 Game of the Week 2014-IG

A pair of coaches in their first year with their team will face off for the Division VI Valley Championship on Friday, when Avenal visits Kennedy for the CentralValleyFootball.com Game of the Week, sponsored by PRIME TIME SPORTS.

Dennis Moody took over the head coaching responsibilities for the Kennedy Thunderbirds this year and helped them earn the top seed for the Division VI Valley Playoffs.

The Thunderbirds are led by standout senior running back Rolando Arrona. The previous two seasons, Arrona played quarterback but was switched to running back this year. The move paid off, with Arrona rushing for 1,674 yards and 15 touchdowns this year.

Charles Price became Avenal’s new coach this season and helped the Buccaneers earn a share of the West Sierra League and the No. 2 seed for the playoffs in the first year.

The Bucs’ run-heavy offense averages 8.4 yards per carry, led by Manuel Alvarez (1,219 yards and 10 touchdowns) and Jordan Barrera (918 yards and six touchdowns). Barrera is also tied with Jose Jimenez for the team lead with 59 tackles on the season.
