Alexander Central continued their quest for a conference championship and a perfect season last Friday on Senior night against St Stephens. The Cougars jumped to a 36-0 halftime lead and cruised to a 59-21 victory. Again, plenty of nominees for the Cougar of the Week Award.
Offensive lineman are the lifeblood of any football team, just about any coach will tell you that. They too often go under appreciated by fans because they typically don’t score touchdowns nor make tackles. What they do is obscured by the traffic at the line of scrimmage. Watch any football game and do this, don’t watch the ball for a series or two. Watch the action at the point of attack, watch who’s winning the line of scrimmage. If you do that, chances are you’ll figure out who’s going to win the game.
Earlier in the season, Cougar coach Butch Carter made the comment: “Kyle Phillips has been out best offensive lineman, game in and game out, he’s been our best.” Carter said yesterday that Phillps “became a greatly improved player with the off season work, buying in and getting stronger.”
He blocks the blind side of QB Gunnar Anderson and he’s a big reason why the Cougars are on the cusp of a league tittle.
