Trigg County will have a second chance to make a first impression on the high school football gridiron Friday night when it hosts Calloway County in the second game of the Wildcat Chevrolet Bowl. Trigg County fell to Hopkinsville in its season-opener. The Lakers boast a 1-0 record following a hard-fought 21-17 win over rival Murray in a season-opener.

Calloway County compiled a 7-5 record in 2007. The Lakers look to be the District 1 favorite. During the 2007 regular-season, Calloway County led Lone Oak most of the way before falling in overtime. In the playoffs, Lone Oak rolled over the Lakers.

Calloway County could be the most talented high school football team in the area. Quarterback Casey Brockman and running back Tyrell Willis are the top two returnees for the Lakers. Brockman quietly put together an exceptional 2007 season, completing almost 60 percent of his passes for more than 2,300 yards and 30 touchdowns. Opposing defenses intercepted Brockman 12 times.

Willis (6-3, 230) is considered the top player in Class 4A, District 1.
