Christian Life at St. Thomas More
When: 7 tonight
Where: St. Thomas More (2601 E. Morgan Ave., Milwaukee)
Series note: This is the teams’ first meeting.
Player to watch: Christian Life coach Jack Decker didn’t want to give away his gameplan, but it’s not a secret that the Eagles will find many ways to get the ball to 5-foot-9, 175-pound senior running back Jacob Shaffer. Decker said Shaffer had a 20-yard TD run and a TD reception of about 30 yards in the Eagles’ scrimmage against St. Joseph. ... “He’s our guy,” Decker said. “We’re going to be giving him the ball a lot, both running and passing.”
Key stat: CLS has 16 freshmen listed on its roster.
FYI: After a three-year hiatus, this will be the Eagles’ return to varsity action. Their last varsity game came in Week 9 of the 2015 season, a 38-0 loss to Lake Country Lutheran. ... Thomas More went 0-9 last season.
