Kaufman's offense is led by running back Braxton Garmon. The 6'1, 210-pound senior has already amassed 409 rushing yards and five touchdowns in the first four weeks of the season, including a 182-yard, two-touchdown performance against Athens last week. On defense, the Lions are led by their linebackers, as twins Isaac and Isaiah Leija combine with Jordan Nalls to form a swarming unit that has held their opponents to just under 20 points per game in their three wins.

They'll be tasked with tempering Sunnyvale's dangerous passing attack, which is led by quarterback Rigdon Yates, who has thrown for 1170 passing yards and 13 touchdowns in the first four games of the season. His three primary targets have all had great starts to the year, too, with Andrew Blazek, Josh McDill, and Owen Dlabaj all hauling in multiple touchdowns and at least 17 receptions on the season. Defensively, Sunnyvale is led by senior safety Landon Wright; the team-leader in tackles with 50 on the year, Wright also has had a hand in three turnovers early on in the season by intercepting a pass, forcing a fumble and recovering a fumble already this year.

Our Friday Night Football broadcast begins at 7:20, with kickoff coming at 7:30 p.m.
