Colonels look solid in three-team scrimmage

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

JOHNSON CENTRAL — Whitley County coach Jim Black was pleasantly surprised and pleased with his Colonels’ three-way scrimmage against Johnson Central and Powell County.

The Colonels, who struggled at times last season on offense, held their own and then some against their opponents, which allowed their coach to raise his expectations of his team heading into Thursday’s scrimmage against Pulaski County.

“When you play like we did, it’s easy for a coach to raise his expectations some,” Black said. “I thought we gave a total team effort out there on both sides of the ball. Johnson Central is a very good team and we did a good job against them and Powell County.”

Whitley County started off slow against the Eagles, but once the Colonels got going they were hard to stop.

“It was a good scrimmage for us,” Black admitted. “We started slow and made some early mistakes, but once we cleared those up, we did well. I thought everyone just did a great job. We just needed to get through those silly mistakes early on and we did that.

“I was really pleased with the way Boston Bryant and Austin Ysidro played and (Austin) Hooper did a good job, too. All four of our halfbacks played really good and our receivers caught the ball and did a good job out there — really, we looked good out there. I was surprised.”

Black said he was just as pleased with the way his defense played.

“It was a total team effort on defense, too,” he said. “We got after it on defense. I’m really happy with everything. We came out and did what we needed to do, but we know we still have some things to work on.”

Whitley County will host Pulaski County Thursday at 6 p.m. and will open the 2012 season on Aug. 24 against Russell County.
