SEEING DOUBLE: Rocky Mount's Cuthrell, Wilson Hunt's Bass

These two football players will be facing each other Friday night as Rocky Mount hosts Wilson Hunt for Homecoming.

On the left is senior Gryphon QB Collins Cuthrell. On the right is junior Warrior running back Caleb Bass.

See a slight similarity?

Cuthrell's mom Dawn, upon seeing Bass' mug shot, thought sure it was Collins, until she looked at the uniform collar.

The two, of course, won't be on the field at the same time Friday, but I'd love to get these guys side-by-side for a picture!

Bass (5-11, 177) ran 20 times for 87 yards and a touchdown in Hunt's 45-0 win at Northern Nash. He is the Warriors' leading rusher this season with 147 carries for 957 yards and 10 TDs. As far as Big East teams go, he's the top rusher - just ahead of Southern Nash sophomore Tracey Coppedege (119-910, nine TDs).

Cuthrell (6-1, 180) was 5-for-10 passing for 66 yards in the Gryphons' 25-13 triumph over Nash Central. Cuthrell also ran four times for 39 yards. Cuthrell is the league's top passer with 481 yards (33-69-2) and two TDs.
