* Next week: West Rowan has a big one at home against talented Statesville; The Trojans get to pick on winless North Iredell
* Game notes: No one is thrilled to see K.P. Parks get off the bus, but Northwest less so than anyone. Parks was a monster against Northwest in 2007 with six TDs and 339 rushing yards. In 2006, he rushed for 173 yards and two TDs against NWC.
The biggest game played between the programs was in 2005 when both entered a showdown in Mount Ulla with 8-0 records. West won 14-3.
West coach Scott Young is 90-37 in 10-plus seasons. Heís 6-4 against Northwest. West has beaten the Trojans five in a row since Northwest won 20-14 in 2002.
Westís success against Northwest is one reason itís dominated the NPC. In league contests, The Falcons have won 27 of their last 28 games. The lone loss in that awesome stretch was 20-18 to West Iredell last season.
West sophomore quarterback B.J. Sherrill is impressive. Heís thrown for 326 yards with only one pick.
Northwestís defense played well in the second half against South Rowan last week, but its offense self-destructed all night with turnovers. QB Jonathon Wallace was intercepted five times, and standout running back Dolando Clowney got banged up.
Northwestís offensive line, which includes Walker Smith, faces a big challenge this week trying to block Westís dominating D-lineman Chris Smith.
