ScoutSouth.com: Colbert County vs. Deshler
Deshler has been on a tear since losing their season opener to 5A power Russellville in overtime Quarterback Chase Blackburne has made the Tiger offense two demensional with his superb play in recent weeks.
The Tigers have a potent offense that resembles a two-headed monster with Dominique King and D.J. Box in the mix. King is averaging more than 100 yards per game, and Blackburne has been on fire since week two.
ScoutSouth.com asked Colbert County Coach Gross Friday morning how the Indians will slow down the Tiger offense.
"I'm not sure how we're going to slow them dow," he said from his office at the high school. "Dominique King and D.J. Box are the two best running backs we'll face all year. And their quarterback, Blackburne, manages the game well and throws it well. It poses a big challenge for us this week."
"The have people all over the field that are capable of hurting you, tight end, wing back, their offensive line is big. They play very good up front. If we don't play well we'll get embarrassed tonight," Coach Gross stated.
Colbert County isn't without talent of their own, and we asked Coach Gross about some of his playmakers.
Justin Dawson: "Justin is playing well on both sides of the ball. He play offensive line and defensive line for us. He's doing a good job."
Darrius Madden: "Missed the first two games, and he has come back and played pretty well at running back and corner."
Tyler Abernathy: "Tyler has been playing well at linebacker. He hasn't played much until this season, but he has taken on a leadership role as a senior. He is one of those guys that suddenly realized that as a senior, this is it. We've been very pleased with Tyler ths season."
ScoutSouth.com will continue to follow the Colbert County Indians throughout the 2007 season.
