Central looks for win No. 2

Published 9:23am Tuesday, September 25, 2012

Central-Coosa High School hasn’t won more than two games in a season since 2007 and with a win this coming Friday night at South Lamar High School (0-4), the Cougars (1-3) can begin working towards somewhat of a new legacy.
“I’m looking for our seniors to step up and play a good game (Friday),” said second year Central head coach Richard Bell.
“We need to play a complete game on both sides of the ball.”
Due to a scheduling change late in the season, the Cougars will make the three hour drive to South Lamar, which is located to the northwest of Tuscaloosa.
“I told the guys we’re going to go up there and have a good time and try and get a win,” said Bell of his teams three hour road trip Friday night.
“South Lamar runs the Wing-T offense and from what I can tell, they are a pretty disciplined offense, so we’ll need to be in the right mindset.”
Through the first four games of the 2012 season, Central-Coosa and the local area has gotten a surprise at quarterback in senior Xavier Moon, who is ranked tops in the local area and in the top-10 in Class 3A in passing yardage at this point during the season with 643 yards and four touchdowns in the air.
“We’re going to go into this game with a good game plan and hopefully execute on both sides of the ball,” Bell said.
“So far this season, one thing will go right one week and then go wrong the next week and vice-versa.”
Bell also added that he is encouraged by the opportunity for his players to win multiple games this season Friday night.
“It’s part of the process of building up over here,” he said.
“Winning some games this season is a goal and I want the guys to have the chance to reach their goals this year.”
