HOOTENS.COM GAME OF THE WEEK
No. 1 Charleston vs No. 2 Prescott

Charleston has won five state titles in the past 11 years, while Prescott has won four state titles in school history, its last in 1995. Prescott lost in the state finals in 1970, 1976, 1983, 2006 and 2009. Charleston pulled away from Glen Rose last week for a 44-13 semifinal win, while Prescott took down Newport 41-8. This appears to be a matchup of strength vs strength: Charleston's passing attack triggered by senior quarterback Jackson Rowland (67 percent, 3,150 yards, 38 TDs, eight INTs) and six receivers with double-digit receptions against a stout Prescott linebacking corps and secondary paced by junior safety Peyton Chandler (152 tackles, 19.5 TFL). Chandler has four interceptions, while lockdown senior corner Deonte Jamison (6-2, 174) has a team-high eight INTs. An entertaining matchup would place Jamison on Charleston's electric wideout Sean Michael Flanagan. The junior put up 224 all-purpose yards two weeks against Centerpoint and gouged Glen Rose for 103 yards and two TDs and returned two interceptions 125 yards to set up TDs. Charleston's defense shut out  Glen Rose in the second half when it allowed just 43 yards. It will be tested this week by Prescott senior QB Derrick Flynn (62 percent, 2,221 yards, 16 TDs, six INTs) who averages 6 yards per carry when he does not hand off to senior RB Carlos Van Hook (1,273 yards, 29 TDs).
