LINEVILLE, Ala. (WIAT)- The Central of Clay County High School Volunteers have never lost to the Childersburg High School Tigers; but, then again, they’ve only played them once. CCCHS is in only their second season, after Lineville High School and Clay County High School were consolidated. However, if the Vols want to keep their win streak going, quarterback/defensive back Anthony Wood said they’ll have to remember lessons from last year. “We’re not the team we had last year,” he said after practice Wednesday, citing the twenty-two seniors on the squad last year. ”But, this team we have this year we have our own thing. So, as long as we stay focused and determined, we’ll be hard to beat.”
Coach Kris Herrons said his squad will need to stay focused, because if they don’t, the Tigers will lay the lumber. “The first thing about Childersburg that catches your eye is their physicality,” he said. Coach Herron also praised the CHS defensive line, calling them big and saying his team will have trouble running the ball.
Childersburg will not go down without a fight. Last week they dug themselves out of a sixteen point hole to top Sylacauga 35-30. Whichever team drops this game will be playing a little catch-up themselves, with the winner taking a lead in Region 3, 4A. This critical showdown is our Southeast Crane and Hoist Friday Football Fever Game of the Week.
