Frankford, which repeated as Public champ with a 30-3 romp over Washington, is sparked on offense by quarterback Marquise Poston and speedy halfbacks Damion "Jawzy" Samuels and Quinton Ellis.
In watching the Pioneers defense on tape, Hawks coach Gabe Infante said he was "impressed by No. 7" - 6-foot-5, 220-pound junior end Shareef Miller - "and No. 78," 6-2, 300-pound senior tackle Kadar Jones.
The Prep's breakthrough win over La Salle came at a cost. The Hawks lost savvy quarterback Chris Martin to a left-knee injury early in the fourth quarter. The captain's return to action this season is uncertain.
Jack Clements, a 6-4, 200-pound junior, is Martin's replacement.
"He has a strong arm, runs real well," Infante said. "We're fortunate to have a kid like that waiting his turn."
Even without Martin, the Hawks have more than enough firepower to handle Doggett's upset-minded bunch.
Pick: Prep, 41-12.
Last week: 7-0.
Overall: 83-26 (.761).
