Alexander Central’s Football team had to score four touchdowns in a span of nine minutes of the fourth quarter last Friday to pull away from a stubborn McDowell team. When the game ended the Cougars were 8-0 and the Homecoming crowd was celebrating a 55-21 victory. The win kept the Blue and Gold atop the Northwestern Conference standings at 4-0. A game like that means some standout individual performances. So many, we again have Co- Winners of the Custom Framecrafters-B86 Radio Cougar of Week.
On defense, Alexander Central was led by a junior lineman who collected 9 tackles including 3 quarterback sacks leading to 4 tackles for loss. He beat double team blocks all night and spent a great deal of time in the McDowell backfield. Even when he didn’t make the tackle, he harassed the Titans’ offense.
On offense a senior ran himself into the School record books. He rushed for 218 yards and two scores and caught 4 passes covering another 50 yards and another touchdown. He also became the all-time leading ground gainer in Cougar Football history. Several of his scoring plays were nothing short of electric !
