The Coaches: Berwick's George Curry (413-90-5, 43rd year); Crestwood's Greg Myers (41-44, 7th year)
Last Meeting: Crestwood 19-6 in 2011
All-Time Series: Berwick leads 6-1
Quick Fact: Comets won for first time against Berwick, 19-6, last season
Scouting Berwick: Curry is back, but a lot of the offense is gone. Departed QB Jared Pierce and RB Jeremy Freeman combined to score 31 of 40 regular-season TDs in 2011. But there is also a concern on defense where the Dawgs gave up too many points last season.
Scouting Crestwood: Buy a program. Four-year starting QB Nick Aigeldinger is one of several key contributors to graduate. WR Kota Kishel is back after a strong season, but that's about it at the skill positions.
What To Expect: Berwick is probably a little ahead of Crestwood right now based on the returning players. That should be evident now, but perhaps not later in the season.
