Olathe South vs. Wichita Heights

Wichita Heights' quarterback Matt Reed will certainly go
down as one of the best players in Heights history.  He has
a 29-1 record as a starter, and he's rushed for over 1,000
yards in back-to-back season.

TheImpaler’s Week 13 pick
Last week (1-0) Season (49-17)

OS (11-1) vs. WH (12-0) This one is easy, the Falcons will win. But seriously, Heights looked almost human for 3 quarters against Derby but got it together to pull away at the end. O South played their best game of the year in the rematch against the hated Hawks but they'll have to do even better to stay with this Heights team. I look for South to put up a better fight than the Eagles did last year but still, it's Heights all the way. WH 40 OS 24

I would probably describe Height's offense more as a triple option flexbone a la Georgia tech and the service schools.
