JACKSBORO — Ever seen that older, single uncle that takes playing backyard football with the nieces and nephews a little too seriously at family reunions?

Get a mental image of that and it's close to being an accurate assessment of how Cody Blanc played Friday night.

Recruited as a safety, the Tennessee commitment was electric every time he touched the ball, scorching host Campbell County for 130 rushing yards on six carries with three touchdowns (56, 3, 47). The Knoxville Central senior also caught two screens for 48 yards, including another TD (25).

"Ultimately, he's a special player and that's what we tell our offensive line is just hold their blocks on the front side and back side and 36 will take it to the house," Central coach Joe Hassell said. "They're doing a better job of understanding a play is never dead with him. If they'll just hold what they got, he'll make plays for us."

After the 34-7 Central victory over their District 3-AAA opponent, Blanc gave his thoughts to InsideTennessee about his future Vols' matchup with Southeastern Conference rival Georgia.

"It'll be close," Blanc said. "It's not like Georgia's just going to come up here and put a whooping' on us. If Bray throws for 300 again, it's game over. If Arnett starts up up a little bit … they'll win."
