In Week 3 for high school football on the North Shore we look at St. John's Prep as it prepares to take on Central Catholic in Phil Stacey's Moving the Chains column, as well as some outstanding defenders who are key to the Danvers Falcons, in Matt Williams' Football Focus column.

As always, there are staff predictions for the games, as well as updated stats and the latest podcast with The Salem News sports staff and MSO Web Radio's Bill Newell.

You can follow all the weekend football action on our Twitter feeds (@salemnewssports, @PhilStacey_SN, @MattWilliams_SN, @JeanDePlacidoSN, _kevin_17 and @StephenTobey1), and make sure to check our website for updated game stories, photos and updates throughout the weekend.
