On Friday night, the Camdenton Lakers stand in Glendale’s way of a perfect 9-0 regular season.

A Glendale win would make the Falcons the 22nd team in the history of Springfield Public Schools football to win nine or more games in the season. Glendale last won nine games in 1996.

Glendale (8-0) junior quarterback Alex Huston appears to lead the nation in passing, according to a recent piece in USA Today. Huston has passed for 3,930 yards and 48 touchdowns through eight games. Senior Luke Montgomery leads the Falcons with 61 receptions for 1,368 yards and 12 touchdowns.

The Ozark Conference’s top team hosts Camdenton in the Springfield News-Leader Game of the Week presented by Murney Associates, Realtors.

Camdenton enters Friday’s game at Glendale 6-2 and fresh off its program’s induction in the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame. In 57 seasons of football, Camdenton celebrated 54 winning seasons and five state championships.

Thirty-six of iconic coach Bob Shore’s 44 seasons were spent at Camdenton. Shore retired in 2010 with an all-time career record of 367-98-3. Shore’s retirement led to the promotion of his son, former Lakers quarterback Jeff Shore.

Six members of Camdenton’s coaching staff are former Lakers who played for Bob Shore.

The Lakers have used a two-quarterback offensive system this season with Dyllan Decker and Isaiah Lumley splitting snaps in the backfield. Running back Jay Griffin leads the Camdenton offense with 983 yards and 14 touchdowns on 148 rushing attempts.
