COLUMBIA - Mid-Missouri football teams are celebrating milestones across the state.
This week's game of the week features two fo the longest standing rivals in the Clarence Cannon Conference. Centralia is celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the 2003 State Championship football team. Centralia enters the week coming off of a win versus Mark Twain, 54-8. After opening up the 2013 season with a win over Louisiana, South Shelby has failed to win in its last two attempts.
Another Mid-Missouri high school is celebrating a century-long tradition at tonight's game. This year marks the 100th year that the Kewpie has represented Hickman High School.
Hickman visits Helias tonight. Hickman is 1-2 through three games. Tonight is an important game for the Kewpies as they look to get back to .500 before they host the Providence Bowl next week. Kewpies running back Justise Keith is 'probable' to start tonight. But they'll have to stop the Crusaders' quarterback Wyatt Porter and tight end Hale Hentges.
