After starting the season off strong with a 42-12 win against East, Greenwood’s next game is against the Allen County Patriots right here at the Swamp. They will be hoping to start off the  year 2-0 by beating a team that features head coach Brad Hood, and last week lost a tough game 21-20 to Daviess County. Last year they went 4-7 and this year is their 47th in football. They run a pro 1 veer offense and a 4-4 defense.

Their offense has many key players on offense and defense. Senior Ty Mutter led the team in rushing last year with 581 yards on 106 carries, averaging 5.5 yards a carry.He also finished second in tackles last year with 90. Senior Nick Brown will also be a threat with his speed, as he had 55 carries for 446 yards as a junior, averaging 8.1 yards a carry.

On defense Allen County has  made changes with different defensive schemes. Mutter has been asked to lead a young unit looking to recover from the graduation of last years leading tackler Quinn Towery. The team’s  biggest player Paul Miller(6’6,340) will add defensive stability by hogging up the middle.
