We lost 9 on offense, about 6 on defense and some out of state players. So to come back and play like this on our first game, I’m very proud of our effort.”

The game was played on Saturday, because the visitor side lights at MCHS would not come on due to the massive electricity problems the county experienced Friday night. Clarksville and Fort Campbell played most of the first half without lights, which came back on there at 8:15p.m.

“Central played a good game. They have new coaching staff. Their trying to get things in order and we can understand that,” stated Hood. “We’re trying to get better ourselves. We have a long road ahead. We started with two tough teams 4A Montgomery Central and then 3A Stewart County. We’re always playing the big teams and we have little 1A Clarksville Academy that seems to find a way to play good. I’m just so proud of our effort.”

“We have a couple of plays just to let the kids have some fun. We actually scored on the first play of the game, but it got called back on a holding. One of the coaches asked should we try it again. So I said well why not. So we ran it again and it worked out well for us.” commented Hood.

“We started last year. We had a great off season. Our kids worked so hard. We had a great spring time and a great summer. I think just about everyone showed up every single day this summer,” stated hood. “They put in alot of time. We don’t play around too much. We work very hard, they respond to that and it shows on the football field most nights.”

Hood went on to say, “Our next opponent is Stewart County, a 3A team in the same region as Montgomery Central. A very tough district they play in. We have our work cut out for us again next weekend. They will have 80 kids on the sideline and we’ll take our little 40 down there and see what we can do.”
