    LEOPOLD—Most area football teams are run-oriented this year. But West Washington, which will visit Perry Central Friday at 6:30 p.m., likes to pass just as much.
    “They’re balanced - I’d say it’s about 50-50 passing and running,” said Perry Central Coach Greg Gibson.
    Nick Marrs, a 6-foot-3, 185-pound senior, quarterbacks the 4-2 Senators.
    “He’s got a good arm and he’s pretty accurate most of the time,” said Perry Central Coach Greg Gibson.
