Jewell pleased with his team's effort in scrimmage against Middlesboro

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

MIDDLESBORO — Although Friday’s scrimmage between Corbin and Middlesboro ended in a tie at 21 points apiece, Redhounds coach Steve Jewell said he was more than pleased with what he saw out of his team.

After beating and banging on each other for much of the summer, Jewell said he and his staff really didn’t know what to expect once the team got into a live game situation.

“Even though the game was tied, we aren’t really looking at it that way because we were ahead when we pulled our varsity guys off the field,” Jewell said. “We were ahead 14-0 and they scored, but after that we put our junior varsity guys in and let them get some playing time in.

“Believe it or not, I was really pleased, but we really didn’t know what to expect out of our kids,” he added. “This was the first time we had went against a different opponent this season, so I was really happy with the kids’ enthusiasm and intensity. We still have some things to fix that we saw on tape, but those are things that are correctable.”

One of the biggest changes for the Redhounds this season has been moving senior Taylor Waddle from the quarterback position into the backfield. Junior Corey Taylor replaced Waddle under center and though he’s cautious in the early stages, Jewell said he was pleased with both players when all was said and done.

“Knock on wood, but it seemed like Taylor (Waddle) looked really comfortable at running back and he made some really good cuts,” Jewell said. “Corey handled the offense well and made some good reads, but I was pleased with both of their performances as well as several other kids.

“We had good leadership on defense out of several kids,” he added. “Tanner Powers stepped up and anchored the defense like we expected him to and overall I thought we played well.”

Corbin will open the season Friday on the road as it travels to Somerset High School where they'll face Southwestern Pulaski in the Ray Correll Bowl at 6:30 p.m.

The Redhounds will open the home portion of the schedule against Perry Central in the Cumberland Falls Pigskin Classic on Aug. 30 in the second game of the evening.
