CORBIN -- Justin Haddix's Corbin Redhounds took advantage of having the week off and went back to the basics after posting a 2-2 mark during its first four games, the program's worst start since going 1-3 to open the 2012 campaign.

The week off came at a good time after Haddix's Redhounds suffered consecutive losses for the first time since 2015.

Corbin began the season with wins over both Whitley County and Tennessee's Notre Dame High School but dropped a 23-22 decision to Class 5A power Pulaski County in Week Three while falling to Beechwood, 26-10, on the road last week.

"We've got to get back to the basics," Haddix said. "We've been starting slow on offense each game and they're things on defense We new to clean up. This week, we've just really gone back to the basics, and the off week also allowed us to get a head start preparing for Bowling Green.

"Right now we're 2-2 and we don't like it," he added. "We can sit back and feel sorry for ourselves or get to work and look forward to next Friday. Our kids have responded well this week."

Despite the early struggles, Haddix said his team's demeanor has been positive.

"What we've got to realize is the season is flying by and we need to continue to get better," Haddix added. "We are excited about getting the opportunity to play Bowling Green next week. Any game we play on our schedule is a big game. You only get so many opportunities in a season and 11 games are guaranteed, so we don't want to waste any of the opportunities coming up. I feel like we are improving and getting better and finding things out. We've got to get better and we are. We've got a high ceiling. We just need to continue to work hard and good things will happen."
