Saints hope to slow LR Christian’s playmakers

Shiloh Christian coach Jeff Conaway is hopeful a top offensive lineman can play, but remains uncertain about his top two receivers heading into tonight’s game at Little Rock Christian.

Bowerman is a third-year starter and handles all the calls up front. Tyler Roth and Jake Nelson, who combined for more than 100 catches and nearly 2,000 yards in 2015, didn’t play against Elkins due to leg injuries. Roth is doubtful to play while Nelson is questionable after practicing “very, very … Continue Reading ››
