SOUTH WHITLEY — Whitko and Columbia City are bringing two different styles of play to Friday night’s county-rivalry match up in South Whitley. Columbia City brings a competitive passing game, while Whitko ran much of its season opener on the ground last week.

Whitko quarterback Garrett Elder had a strong performance on the ground in the Wildcats’ season opener against Wawasee last week. Elder was the leading ballcarrier with 168 of Whitko’s 312 rushing yards, including an 80-yard break-away run for a touchdown.

Columbia City quarterback Trevor Bolt recorded 239 passing yards in the Eagles’ season-opening win over Warsaw last week. Bolt was 14-for-28 for two touchdowns.
