Alexander Central has played themselves atop the Northwestern Conference standings and are positioned to win a league title for the first time since 2010. The win at Freedom last Friday is a signature victory for the Cougars. The Blue and Gold never trailed and hung on to beat Patriots 33-28 in Morganton. They did it by controlling the line of scrimmage and grinding out almost 400 yards on the ground.
When the dust had settled and the celebration had calmed, one player more than any other, stood out. He sprinted, grunted, and thrashed the Freedom defense for 181 yards on 25 carries. He scored two touchdowns and frustrated the Patriots with countless yards after contact.
