Tonight the Titans will take the field with a chance to secure the first football league championship in school history. Legend will travel down to Castle Rock to take on the 3-5 Castle View Sabercats.

The Titans will be lead by junior quarterback Peyton Remy, who leads the state in touchdown passes with 24 on the season. Remy is also second in the state in passing yards with 1,896.

According to InsiderRecruit Remy has gained interest from many division one schools which include Utah, BYU, Air Force, Boise State, Colorado, Wyoming, and Colorado State.

Senior wide receivers Elijah Cherrington and Cody Dengal are both having huge seasons catching passes. Dengal has racked up 32 receptions for 657 yards and nine touchdowns. Cherrington has caught 30 passes for 578 yards and eight touchdowns. Both are in the top three in receiving in the Pioneer League.

Legend will be up against a team that really likes to run the ball. The Sabercats average 144 yards on the ground per game, and are led by junior running back Erik Taylor, who averages just under 70 yards per contest.

The key for Castle View in this game will be stopping the explosive and exciting offense that the Titans present. Legend averages 36.8 points per game which is ten points higher than the national average.

If the Titans are able to pull out the victory tonight, they will be the new Pioneer League Champions. With a current 6-2 record, Legend is also looking at a top seed in the Colorado 5A State Playoffs.

This has been a breakout season for the Legend football program as before this season the Titan hadn’t posted over a .500 record. It will be a huge step forward if the Titans are able to advance deep into the playoffs.
