Cougars changing to ground attack

August 28, 2003

Edison-In high school football, Calhoun County returns 17 starters from a team that made its second straight trip to the state playoffs last season.

 The one player the Cougars lost though was their quarterback which is why Calhoun County is going to change offenses.

 Instead of a wide open passing attack, Calhoun County wants to move the football on the ground with tailback Shaun Roseborough and fullback Marcellus Timpson.

 Timpson is also the nose guard on defense as most of the Cougars have to play both offense and defense.

With limited numbers, the Cougars know they have to work harder as they hope to not only return to the playoffs but to make it past the first round.

Coach Williams said "We have to run a little extra and we have to get guys to move to different positions. It is just tough being at a small school where you don't have that two platoon situation."

Calhoun County opens the season Friday night at home against Trion High school.
