The Adair County Middle School Indians improved to 2-0 Tuesday evening with a dominating 38-6 win over Green County.
“I was very impressed,” says head coach John Peck. “We came out and did what we needed to do. We’ve got a strong line and strong backs so we wanted to come out and be physical and kind of overwhelm them. I thought we did that.”
Running back Cameron Harmon set the tone early with three long first quarter touchdown runs en route to a 24-0 advantage after one quarter of play, and the Tribe never looked back. The big boys up front dominated the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball and Green County never managed to build any momentum.
“Our line has been devastating on offense and defense both games,” Peck says. “They’re a unique group for middle school linemen. I thought [Harmon and running back Gary Crawford] ran the ball really well, but our line gets a lot of credit on those runs too.”
Going forward, Peck says the squad is as focused on improving every day and making sure no one does anything to jeopardize the season.
“We know we have talent,” Peck says. “What’s important for us is being the best group we can be at school, in the classroom, and with our behavior. So far they’ve done that—it’s a smart group. We feel like we can do something special, so don’t mess it up.”
The squad’s next contest is scheduled for next Tuesday, Aug. 23, at Hart County. Kickoff is at 5 p.m.
