Maguire Petersen, RB/WR/DB – Hutchinson (at Becker)

It’s hard to overstate how important Petersen is to the Tigers’ success. He’s their big play threat at both running back and wide receiver, with three touchdowns of 25-yards or longer already in 2017. For the season, Petersen has almost 400 total yards and six touchdowns through three games.

He also makes an impact on special teams, something the Bulldogs experienced first-hand last season when Petersen took the opening kickoff 79 yards for a touchdown. The 180-pound senior also returns punts and is the team’s punter, and oh yeah, he plays a significant amount at defensive back too.

If Hutchinson wins the matchup of two top-10 teams on the road in Becker, expect Petersen to play a huge role.
