Varsity football preview: Lowell Red Arrows

The varsity football team enters rivalry week at 3-4 (2-2) and will go on the road to an intimidating Lowell stadium to battle with the 1-6 (1-3) Red Arrows. A traditional powerhouse, Lowell has been historically dominant in this matchup. FHC is 12-22 against the Red Arrows in history, and 1-9 since 2010 – the sole win coming from a 35-6 victory last season. Neither team is having a breakout season, which shows there is no clear favorite in this one.

Lowell had a major adjustment at the beginning of this season, as 22-year Head Coach Noel Dean stepped down. Dean was 219-42 and won three State Championships for the program. The Red Arrows have clearly struggled in his absence, as their only win so far came against Ottawa Hills 28-14. FHC was able to earn a much larger victory over the Bengals just last week, with a final score of 55-20.

After a tough first six weeks to the season, the Rangers have turned their focus to the final three games. With a win last week, FHC will look to go 2-0 the next two weeks to keep their playoff dreams alive at a 5-4 record. This feat is very possible with the two-quarterback system the Rangers implemented last game. With junior Jimmy Scholler lethal through the air and sophomore Carson Mocherman shifty on his legs, expect the Ranger offense to be productive Friday night. On the other side of the ball, FHC’s defense has been strong all season and continued consistency will be key to winning against a run-heavy Red Arrow offense.
