Getting Better

Lynn Camp shows signs of improvement during scrimmage versus Harlan

CORBIN —

By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

HARLAN COUNTY — Lynn Camp coach Phil Russell saw some positives and negatives come out of his team’s 20-6 SEKC scrimmage loss to Harlan.

Russell liked how his team was able to move the ball on offense, but he also saw some things he didn’t like as well.

“It was just a bunch of little things that added up,” We dropped a touchdown pass and we drove the ball deep in their territory, and we go for it on fourth and two, and we jump.

“Early on we were ducking our heads,” he added. “Basically not doing what we were coached to do. But it’s early, and I’m going to be positive. I could be going completely nuts right now, but I’m not going to do that. It’s 0-0, and we’ll break down Powell County (film) and we’ll get ready for next week.”

Defensively, Lynn Camp had trouble stopping Harlan tailback Cory Chorak, who transferred from Harlan County last year. Chorak carried the ball nine times and grounded out 147 yards while quarterback Tanner Morris ran for 48 yards and two touchdowns.

“We had trouble at times stopping the run, but those are things that can be fixed,” Russell said.

Lynn Camp turned out to be its own worst enemy on a couple of offensive possessions, as quarterback Austin Maier looked to have connected with a 60-yard touchdown strike, but the pass was dropped, and later in the game, the Wildcats drove to the Harlan 15-yard line before seeing the drive stall.

“I thought we moved the ball good at times,” Russell said. “We’ve just got to capitalize. I thought Austin Maier looked good out there. Our offensive line is young, but we’re going to continue to get better and I’m excited as heck right now.

“Austin was a positive for sure,” he added. “Give us a couple of weeks and I think Austin is going to be a very good football player for years to come.”

Russell pulled out some trickery in the second half, as Keanu Nolen took a pitch on a hook-and-ladder play that covered 62 yards before he got tackled at the Green Dragon one-yard line. Maier scored on the next possession giving the Wildcats their lone score of the game.

“You know me, I like doing some trick plays, that’s why they call me the Mad Hatter,” Russell laughed. “We executed that well and I expect us to get even better as the season goes on. I’m excited about what lies ahead for us.”
