The Indians were 6-3 going into their last regular season game of the season against Metcalfe County and they were looking to cap off their spectacular year with a win against the Hornets.
The game started off with the Indians quickly getting off to a lead, and the Hornets were just never able to catch back up. The story of the game was once again quarterback Lane Grant’s fantastic rushing performance. While he did lack the passing game that Indians’ fans hoped to see, he made up for it with his 149-yard two-touchdown game.
Receiver Solomon Stonebraker once again led the charge with yards in the air, with 37 yards on four receptions. The connection between these two is truly special. When asked about Stonebraker, Grant said, “It’s like having someone down the field who is always open. Whether it’s great play calling, speed, or good route running, the guy’s always there.”
Defensively it was Junior Deshawn Crowdus who had a monster of a game. He had nine tackles, several of which being for a loss of yardage. This is a season high for the Indians and really helped stop Metcalfe’s rushing attack. If the defense continues to play the way they have been, it’s obvious that the Indians could be a dangerous team in the playoffs.
