The Phelps defense will face its toughest task of the season against Tug Valley.
The Hornets will have to limit Tug Valley’s run game, but also deal with the threat of Chaffin’s throwing ability.
Chaffin’s play will be critical for the Panthers.
Chaffin’s ability to throw the ball might be the difference for the Panthers.
Chaffin has a strong run game to take pressure off and he will have opportunities to throw the ball.
If Chaffin can have a good game, the Panthers may leave Phelps with a win.
