Benedictine vs. Greater Atlanta Christian -2A – Dec. 13. 2014


>>>GOOD AFTERNOON. YOU GET AN AERIAL VIEW OF THE GEORGIA DOME AS WE ARE HERE IN ATLANTA. THE EPICENTER OF HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL CHAMPIONSHIP WEEKEND. AS WE GET READY FOR THE CLASS AA CHAMPIONSHIP IN THE GREAT STATE OF GEORGIA. ON ONE SIDE, BENEDICTINE. ON THE OTHER SIDE, GAC TRYING TO CAP THE PERFECT SEASON. WE SAY HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO YOU AND YOURS ON THIS GREAT SATURDAY, GAME TWO OF OUR CHAMPIONSHIP SATURDAY. GIL TYREE ALONG WITH THE ATLANTA FALCON BRIAN FINERAN AND WE HAVE A DANDY.>>WE REALLY DO. BRAD STEWART, THE WIDE RECEIVER, 19 YARDS A CATCH. HE CAN FLY. 4.5 TYPE 40 SPEED. REALLY GETS AFTER IT. GPA CREEPING UP ON YOUR 40 TEAM, YOU’RE DOING SOMETHING RIGHT. HE’LL GO TO YALE IN THE FALL. AND THEN YOU TALK ABOUT GAC SIDE OF THE FOOTBALL, YOU LOOK AT MIKE ABERNATHY, RUNNING BACK. AVERAGING TEN YARDS A TOUCH. OVER 1,000 YARDS ON THE SEASON. REALLY DOES A GOOD JOB FINDING THE FOOTBALL. MAKING PEOPLE MISS. CAN SCORE FROM ANYWHERE ON THE FIELD.>>YARDS AFTER CATCH AND THE ABERNATHY NAME VERY FAMOUS IN THE CITY OF ATLANTA. NOW LET’S GO DOWNSTAIRS TO THE THIRD MEMBER OF OUR CREW TODAY. THE BETTER LOOKING OF ALL OF US. GRACE, HOW ARE YOU DOING.>>YOU’RE FAR TOO KIND. IT OBVIOUSLY TAKES A FULL TEAM TO REACH A STATE FINALS APPEARANCE, BUT NO DOUBT PAUL CAROTHERS HAS BEEN A KEY PIECE IN THEIR STATE TITLE RUN. 108 SOLO TACKLES ON THE SEASON PLUS 41 ASSISTS NOT TO MENTION A RECORD SETTING 22 SOLO TACKLES AND 26 TOTAL IN THE SEMIFINAL WIN OVER FITZGERALD. BUT IF YOU ASK PAUL ABOUT THE INDIVIDUAL RECORD, HE’D TELL TO YOU STOP WHILE YOU’RE AHEAD. HE AND THE TEAM TRULY DO EVERYTHING FOR THE BETTERMENT OF THEIR TEAM. AND OF THEIR DEFENSIVE UNIT. AND THEY CREATED SOMETHING IN 2013 CALLED THE BLACK SHIRT DEFENSE WHERE EVERY GAME, ALL THE PLAYERS ARE WORKING TO EARN A BLACK SHIRT EVERY WEEK. AND IT’S KIND OF BECOME A CLUB IN A WAY. AND ANY CREATED A CODE THAT THEY FOLLOW. SO OBVIOUSLY A MATURE GROUP OF YOUNG MEN.>>WE’RE ABOUT READY TO KICK THIS THING OFF. AND WE’LL HAVE A GOOD ONE.>>LOOKING FORWARD TO IT. TAKING IT ON THE SHORT AND MOVING IT STRAIGHT AHEAD FOR BENEDICTINE.>>GOOD COVERAGE BY GAC. NOT A WHOLE LOT ON THE RETURN.>>EARLY ON HERE, AND OF COURSE ONE OF THESE TWO TEAMS WILL TAKE THE STATE CHAMPIONSHIP BACK TO THEIR CAMPUS. WE TALKED ABOUT IT EARLIER. GAC, YOU SEE STEVIE POWERS WEARING NUMBER ONE. AND A KID THAT HAS A WHOLE LOT OF SMARTS. YOU SEE BLACKSTON, CREECH, THOMPSON, VOYLES AND NYCE. AND THEN YOU GET STEWART YOU CAN JACKSON, HARRIS, KENNEDY AND HOLGUIN.>>GOOD JOB BY THE GAC DEFENSE SWARMING TO THE FOOTBALL.>>SPARTANS RUN A 3-4. BRENDAN WASHINGTON IN THE MIDDLE. AND OF COURSE LINEBACKERS COACH TALKED ABOUT, CAROTHERS AND COOKSEY, BOTH GOING TO DIVISION ONE. AND THEN YOU SEE THE SECONDARY LED BY ON EITHER SIDE ABERNATHY. POWERS DUMPS IT OFF. GETTING CLOSE TO THE 44 YARD LINE. THEY DUMPED IT OFF. THAT LOOKED LIKE COAL QUINN.>>NICE LITTLE TOUCH PASS. FINDS SOME YARDAGE AND CONVERTS A FIRST DOWN.>>GAIN OF 13.>>LITTLE CHECK DOWN. TIGHT END SCREEN PASS OFF THE CHIP BLOCK. NICE DESIGN BY THE COACH.>>AROUND THE RIGHT SIDE. FIGHTING FOR YARDAGE. CHANCE JACKSON. 1,000 YARDS, 5’11”, 181 POUND SENIOR. AND A GOOD JOB BY THE GAC DEFENSE TO STRING IT OUT.>>PAUL CAME RUT CAROTHERS, YOU
WILL SEE HIM AROUND THE FOOTBALL ALLLES
LAST WEEK.>>108 ALL YEAR GOING IN TO THIS GAME. 22 IN THE WIN AGAINST FITZGERALD. HE GETS STOOD UP AND PUSHED BACK. AND HE MAY HAVE LOST A COUPLE.>>LAST TWO PLAYS, ABERNATHY AND SLATE HAVE DONE A GREAT JOB FILLING UP. CUT THEIR LEGS OUT FROM UNDERNEATH THEM AND STOPPED THE MOMENTUM.>>THAT WILL BRING UP THIRD AND 12. BALL AT THE 42. POWERS LOOKING LONG. HAS A RECEIVER OPEN. AND ALMOST PICKED OFF. AND WE SEE FLAGS ON THE PLAY. THE RECEIVER STEWART.>>POWERS SHORT ON IT A LITTLE BIT. UNDERTHROWN. BUT STEWART DID A GREAT JOB COMING BACK AND TRYING TO MAKE A PLAY ON THE FOOTBALL TO WHERE THE DB HAD TO RUN RIGHT INTO HIM. SO POWERS THROWS IT IT DEEP POST TO STEWART. HE TRIES TO MAKE A PLAY AND DB JUST RUNS IN TO HIM. NOTHING THE DB CAN DO.>>ABERNATHY DEFENDING ON THE PLAY.>>TRYING TO MAKE THE BIG PLAYS WE TALKED ABOUT EARLIER.>>STRONG SAFETY WAS THERE, TOO. STILL STRUGGLING AND GAINING YARDS. ALMOST TACKLED FOR A LOSS FOR BENEDICTINE.>>JOHN KENNEDY DOES A GOOD JOB RUNNING THE FOOTBALL. YOU SEE A NICE LITTLE JET SWEEP TO THE LEFT. TRIES TO MAKE YARDS OUT OF NOTHING. GAC DOES A GOOD JOB SWARMING TO THE FOOTBALL.>>SECOND AND NINE. GAIN OF ONE. POWERS LOADING UP. AGAIN LOOKING LONG. AND HAD STEWART OUT THERE. ABOUT AT THE 10.>>ANOTHER DEEP SHOT TO STEWART RIGHT DOWN THE SEAM. LINED UP AT THE TIGHT END POSITION. ALMOST IN THE SLOT. TRIED TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE GAC SAFETY POSITION AND THE BALL WAS JUST A LITTLE OVER THROWN.>>GET A LOOK AT DANNY BRITT. HE’S ALSO ATHLETIC DIRECTOR AT BENEDICTINE. OUT EVER OUT OF THE SHOTGUN. POWERS U DOWN TO THE 29. A GAIN OF 13.>>GREAT JOE BY JOE HOLGUIN. GETS HIT. AND THEY MOVE THE CHAINS AGAIN, ANOTHER FIRST DOWN FOR BENEDICTINE.>>THOSE SHORT PASSES THAT YOU TALKED ABOUT. AND POWERS DID A GREAT JOB PUTTING IT ON HIS RECEIVER.>>SO FIRST DOWN AS THE DRIVE STAYS ALIVE. THE MAN IN MOTION. POWERS AGAIN. LOOKING FOR HIS BUDDY STEWART. JUMP BALL AND HE GETS IT. TOUCHDOWN! 29 YARDS.>>WHAT A THROW AND CATCH. WE TALKED ABOUT IT IN THE OPENING AND WE’LL TALK ABOUT IT THE REST OF THE GAME. STEWART CAN FLAT OUT GET THE FOOTBALL. WHAT A GREAT ATHLETIC PLAY.>>HE JUST OUTJUMPED ABERNATHY AND THEY WERE IN THE CORNER OF THE END ZONE. TCSG REPLAY, EARN MORE, EARN MORE. AND HE UNCORKED IT AND LOADED IT UP.>>WHAT AN ATHLETIC BEAUTIFUL JUMPING CATCH. BRAD STEWART IS THE REAL DEAL. WE’LL BE TALKING ABOUT HIM THE REST OF THE GAME.>>NINE PLAYS, 74 YARDS. 3:38 ELAPSED TIME. THE TOUCHDOWN FROM POWERS TO HIS BUDDY STEWART. AND BENEDICTINE ON THE BOARD.>>>BENEDICTINE DRAWS FIRST BLOOD. 7-0. 8:22 IN THE FIRST QUARTER. AND YOU SEE THE DRIVE. NINE PLAY, 74 YARDS. AND YOU SEE THE ELAPSED TIME.>>QUARTERBACK POWERS BIG LEVITY. GIVES THE GUY A CHANCE TO CATCH IT AND STEWART DOES JUST THAT. YOU TALK ABOUT AN ATHLETIC PLAY BY A RECEIVER. UNBELIEVABLE CATCHING THAT THING OVER ABERNATHY AND PUTS BENEDICTINE UP ON THE BOARD 7-0 EARLY IN THIS FOOTBALL GAME. POWERS 3 FOR 4 FOR 56 YARDS ON THAT PLAY. YOU GET THE IDEA WHAT HELD DID EARLY. TAKE SOME SHOTS DOWN THE FIELD. ONCE A PASS INTERFERENCE, ONE AN INCOMPLETE PASS AND THAT ONE A TOUCHDOWN.>>POWERS AND STEWART HAVE SYNERGY. HOW IMPORTANT IS IT FOR THE QUARTERBACK AND THE WIDE RECEIVER TO BE ON THE SAME PAGE?>>YOU CAN’T WIN WITHOUT IT. I MADE A POINT MYSELF TO MAKE SURE I TOOK THE QUARTERBACKS TO DINNER, WHATEVER THEY NEEDED TO MAKE SURE I MADE REAL GOOD FRIENDS WITH THE QUARTERBACKS I PLAYED WITH. NOT ONLY HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE, BUT THE NFL, AS WELL. LIKE YOU SAID, THE SYNERGY BETWEEN THOSE TWO GUYS IS PHENOMENAL. THEY WILL CONTINUE TO DO THAT THROUGHOUT THE COURSE OF THE GAME.>>BRANDON DELOACH WILL KICK OFF FOR THE CADETS. A LOT PEOPLE UP FROM SAVANNAH HERE TODAY. IT WILL GO OUT OF BUNDS AT ABOUT THE 22 YARD LINE.>>NOT HOW YOU WANT TO START YOUR DEFENSE ON THE FIELD GIVEN THE GAC OF SPARTANS REALLY GOOD OFFENSIVE FIELD POSITION. JUST LIKE OVERSWINGING ON THE GOLF COURSE.>>I HEARD ABOUT YOUR GOLF SWING. YOU TAKE YOU A LOOK AT THE BE QUARTERBACK FOR GAC. MILLS. OUTSTANDING TALENT.>>JUST A SOPHOMORE THIS KID. REALLY COMPOSED. ALMOST LIKE ICE IN HIS VEINS BACK THERE FOR A YOUNG KID TO BE DOING. OVER 2,000 YARDS PASSING AND REALLY HEAVY RUN OFFENSE.>>THERE IS A FUMBLE. THERE IS A FULL WELL. AND IT WAS RECOVERED BY BENEDICTINE AND SOMEBODY PUT IT ON THE CARPET. ABERNATHY GOT HAMMERED.>>NUMBER 44, ABSOLUTELY STRIPS THAT BALL ON THE WAY DOWN. BENEDICTINE RECOVERS.>>AND AGAIN YOU TALKED ABOUT IT EARLY. TURNOVERS WILL KILL YOU.>>ABSOLUTELY WILL.>>AND CADETS WILL HAVE THE FOOTBALL LEADING 7-0. POWERS SCRAMBLING FOR HIS LIFE. AND CHUCKS IT OUT OF BOUNDS. NEAR THE 25 YARD LINE.>>THEY’RE LOOKING DEEP AGAIN THERE TO BRAD STEWART ON A CORNER ROUTE. ROLL OUT TO THE LEFT.>>THAT WILL BRING UP SECOND AND TEN. YOU SEE THE MAN IN MOTION. THEY GIVE. AND SPINNING. AND HE PUTS IT ON THE CARPET. RECOVERED BY GAC.>>I TELL YOU WHAT, WE’RE BACK TO EVEN. THE PERSON THAT MADE THE FIRST CONTACT WAS PAUL CAROTHERS. WATCH HIM COME UP HERE, 36, BOOM WITH THE BIG HIT.>>THE LOOSE FOOTBALL RIGHT THERE.>>WE’RE EVEN NOW. GOT TO TAKE CARE OF THAT FOOTBALL. GREAT JOB TO JUMP ON THAT FUMBLE AND GET A RECOVERY. SO HE TOTALLY REDEEMED HIMSELF.>>10 GK WILL TAKE OVER. MILLS STRAIGHT AHEAD TO ABERNATHY. SPACE. PUSHED OUT OF BOUNDS AT ABOUT THE 47 YARD LINE.>>GAC RUNS THE BALANCE ABOUT 65% OF THE TIME. HE GETS HIS USUAL TEN YARDS PER CARRY.>>A GAIN OF 12 AND THAT WILL BE A FIRST DOWN. YOU SEE HIM BOUNCE TO THE OUTSIDE. FIRST AND TEN AT THE 44. MILL AS PLAY FAKE. UNDER DURESS AND IS SACKED FOR A LOSS.>>A LOT OF PRESSURE HERE UP FROM THE INSIDE. YOU SEE HIM MAKE MULLER MISS BUT THAT’S NOT ENOUGH. BECAUSE MY MAN DJ OWENS MAKES THE SACK. PUTS GAC BEHIND THE STICKS. SECOND AND 15.>>HUGE LOSS. RIGHT NOW GAC TRYING TO FIND SOMETHING GOING TRAILING EARLY ON 7-0. HE’S HELPHEMMED IN AND GET

AND IT IS COMPLETE. THAT LOOKED LIKE IT WAS PHAN.>>FANTASTIC ROUTE. THE TOUCH DAVE MILLS PUTS ON THIS BALL IS BEAUTIFUL. LETS HIS RECEIVER GO GET IT. THAT’S JUST WHAT PHAN DOES. NICE LITTLE FIRST DOWN CONVERSION. GREAT JOB GAC MOVING THE CHAINS.>>ZACH SCOTT ON THE TACKLE THE STRONG SAFETY. FIRST AND TEN AT THE CADET 40.

ALREADY A SACK AND NOW A FORCED FUMBLE ON THE DAY. HOLGUIN TAKES IT BACK FOR A TOUCHDOWN.>>GRACE OLSON.>>I HAVE THE ANSWER TO SOMETHING YOU GUYS MAY HAVE BEEN WONDERING ABOUT. A LOT OF TIMES WE’LL SEE EITHER THE LAST NAME OR NO NAMES ON THE BACK OF JERSEYS. BC HAS INTELLIGENT, PHYSICAL AND DISCIPLINE ON THE BACK OF THEIR JERSEYS. THEY TOLD ME THIS IS SOMETHING THEY STARTED LAST YEAR AS ANOTHER WAY OF EMPHASIZING THE VALUES THEY TRY TO STICK TO. A SCHOOL VERY MUCH WANTS TO STAY WITH THEIR MORALS AND VALUES. SO THEY PUT IT ON THEIR JERSEYS SO THEY DON’T FORGET.>>MOST DEFINITELY. TAKE A LOOK AT COACH BRITT. HE HAS TO BE FEELING GOOD.>>HE DEFINITELY IS IT. UP 13-0 EARLY.

HE WILL GET IT OUT TO HOLGUIN.>>GAC’S DEFENSE IS TOO FAST AND TACKLED IT VERY WELL.>>JAKE ROSE AMONG THOSE IN THE VICINITY TO MAKE THE TACKLE.>>YOU HAVE TO MAKE PEOPLE MISS LIKE THEY DID AND SLAYTON IN ON THE TACKLE, AS WELL.

VINCENT CHEERLEADERS. IN FACT COACH BRITT’S DAUGHTER IS A MEMBER OF THE SQUAD. INCOMPLETE PASS. BENEDICTINE BEING AN ALL BOYS SCHOOL. AND OF COURSE THEY’RE ABLE TO RECRUIT AND HAVE THE GIRLS COME OVER FROM ST. VINCENT. AND LIKE I SAID, COACH BRITT’S DAUGHTER IS ONE OF THEM.>>AWESOME FOR THESE KIDS TO EXPERIENCE SOMETHING LIKE THIS.>>SECOND AND TEN. THE INCOMPLETION BY MILLS. AND THE GIVE TO ABERNATHY. BURIES HIS HEAD. UP TO ABOUT THE 32. GRACE OLSON.>>TALKING ABOUT THOSE CHEERLEADERS, I KNOW WELL ABOUT THE HISTORY OF ST. VINCENT CHEERLEADERS.

I WONDER IF HE’LL HAVE THE ITCH TO GET BACK ON THE FBLG FIELD.>>HE HAS IT GOING ON. HIM AND STEWART, THE WORD AS WE’VE TALKED ABOUT HAS BEEN SYNERGY. THESE TWO ARE ON THE SAME PAGE.>>THIS KICKER IS NOT ON THE SAME PAGE WITH ANYBODY. TWICE HE’S KICKED IT OUT OF BOUNDS. MAYBE GAC CAN CAPITALIZE THIS TIME ON IT.

WHEN HE CAME IN, HE DECIDED WE NEED TO PUT EVERY GAME AT EVERY POSITION SO THEY HAVE A FULL UNDERSTANDING WHAT HAVE IT TAKES TO DO IT ON BOTH SIDES OF THE GAME.>>ABERNATHY STRAIGHT AHEAD. HE HAS SPACE. HE’S AT THE 30. 25. HE MAY GO. TOUCHDOWN GAC. 58 YARDS.>>THAT’S WHAT ABERNATHY CAN DO HIM A LITTLE SEAM. GAC CLOSES THE GAP 16-6. 58 YARDS LATER, GAC DANCING IN THE END ZONE.

TO FIND THE GUY THAT CAN DO IT, THEY WON AGAINST THIS BENEDICTINE TEAM FIRST GAME SEASON AND THEY CONTINUE TO GRIND IT OUT WEEK AFTER WEEK. BOTH THESE TEAMS HAVE BECOME BETTER. ONE THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT BENEDICTINE AS FAR AS THEM PROGRESSING IS THROWING THE FOOTBALL DOWN THE FIELD.

HE CANNOT BE HAPPY ABOUT THAT.>>YOU SEE THE REACTION OF COACH HARDY.>>EBBS AND FLOWS OF FOOTBALL GAMES HAPPEN EVERY TIME THESE KIDS STEP ON THE FIELD. YOU HAVE TO FORGET ABOUT THE LAST PLAY, COME OUT AND PLAY A LITTLE DEFENSE. BENEDICTINE SHOULD MAKE THEM PAY ON A GREAT STOP.>>FIRST AND TEND AT THEIR OWN 20. POWERS LOOKING FOR HIS BUDDY STEWART. HE SPINS AROUND AT THE 30. 25, 20. IN HOT PURSUIT. BROUGHT DOWN INSIDE THE 5 TO THE 4 OF GAC.>>WHAT A BEAUTIFUL THROW AND CATCH. POWERS TO STEWART ALL DAY LONG. WATCH THIS ROLL OUT HERE BY POWERS.

YOU CAN TELL THE GAME PLAY FOR BENEDICTINE HAS BEEN THROW THE BALL DOWN THE FIELD AND LET HIM DO HIS THING.>>AND YOU SPOTLIGHTED HIM UP AT THE TOP OF THE SHOW. TALKING ABOUT THE ABILITY OF STEWART. AS A FORMER WIDE RECEIVER, WHAT MAKES HIM SO SPECIAL?>>WATCH THIS CATCH RIGHT HERE. JUST HIS ABILITY TO JUDGE A FOOTBALL AND HAVE THE ATHLETICISM TO CATCH THAT THING. FUNDAMENTALLY SOUND. YOU LOVE SEEING THAT WITH THESE YOUNG KIDS. HE HAS THREE CATCHES, 136 YARDS ON THE DAY.>>AND THEY ARE GIVING POWERS PLENTY OF TIME. HE’S ABLE TO BE ABLE TO WORK HIS WAY WITH STEWART AND THE REST AS YOU SAY HAS BEEN PHENOMENAL.>>COACH BRITT AND THEIR OFFENSE DOES A GOOD JOB OF MOVING THAT POCKET, TOO. POWERS HAS MOVED AROUND MAINLY FOR HIS LEFT. GAC HAS TO FIGURE IT OUT QUICK OR THIS GAME WILL GET OUT OF HAND.>>AFTER THE TIME-OUT, FIRST AND GOAL AT THE 6. BENEDICTINE TRYING TO ADD ON. WE MAY HAVE ENCROACHMENT.>>Referee: PRIOR TO THE SNAP, ENCROACHMENT ON THE DEFENSE.>>LOOKED LIKE BRENDAN WASHINGTON JUMPED.>>A LITTLE FLUSTERED RIGHT NOW WITH THE FUMBLES AND THE DEFENSIVE PLAY AND NOW THE OFFSIDE PENALTY.>>FIRST AND GOAL AT THE 3. KENNEDY IN MOTION. IT WILL BE KENNEDY. DOWN TO ABOUT THE 2.>>PAUL CAROTHERS ON THE TACKLE THERE. GAC HAS THEIR HANDS FULL.>>JOHN WESLEY KENNEDY, 1,000 PLUS YARDS RUSHING OVER 600 RECEIVING. TOTAL PACKAGE.>>14 TOUCHDOWNS ON THE SEASON. SECOND AND GOAL AT THE 1. HE LOOKS LIKE HE GOT ACROSS AND HE IS. TOUCHDOWN.>>STEVIE POWERS DOES IT HIMSELF. FINDS A WAY INTO THE END ZONE.>>TAKE A LOOK. JUST FOLLOWING THE BLOCKERS.>>FOLLOW THE BIG BOYS. FIND THE GOAL LINE. EXACTLY WHAT HE DID. BIG PASS PLAY FROM POWERS TO STEWART TO SET UP THE TOUCHDOWN ON A SNEAK BY POWERS.>>ANOTHER GREAT ROUTE ON THAT POST CATCH BY POWERS TO SET UP THAT — BY STEWART ON TO SET UP THE TOUCH BY POWERS.>>AND JUST WHEN THE SPARTANS HAD TO — WERE GETTING SOME MOMENTUM. HERE COMES BENEDICTINE RIGHT BACK.>>BIG PLAYS ALL GAME LONG. BOTH THESE TEAMS HAVE THE POWER, THE ATHLETES AND SPEED TO GET IT DONE. YOU SAW THE LONG ABERNATHY RUN AND BRAD STEWART ALL DAY LONG, 136 YARDS RECEIVING ON THREE CATCHES. JC HAS TO FIGURE OUT A WAY TO KEEP IT IN FRONT OF HIM. THE BRUNT OF THE GAME SO FAR HAS BEEN BRAD STEWART.>>AND MARK ASKED THE QUESTION SUNDAY WHEN THE COACHES WERE HERE FOR THEIR MEETING, BUT YOU TALKED ABOUT IT, TOO, ABOUT WHAT ARE YOU ABLE TO GADHAFI FRER THAT AUGUST 22 — IT WOULD APPEAR BENEDICTINE SAW A LOT ON TAPE AND WERE ABLE TO MAKE SOME ADJUSTMENTS.>>NO QUESTION. AND THEY HAVE GOTTEN BETTER LIKE COACH HARDY SAID. THEY GOT BETTER THROWING THE FOOTBALL DOWN THE FIELD. THEY SAW SOMETHING THEY LIKED AND THEY HAVE BEEN ATTACKING IT ALL GAME LONG. DELOACH WILL BOOT IT HIGH END OVER END. SLAYTON WILL TAKE IT AT HIS OWN 10. AND HE’S BROUGHT DOWN AT ABOUT THE 16. SPECIAL TEAMS OF BENEDICTINE. GREAT, HELLO.>>HELLO. OKAY. SO WE’VE SEEN A LOT OBVIOUSLY FROM POWERS AND STEWART LIKE YOU WERE JUST SAYING. BUT A LOT OF IT IS ALSO COMING FROM THE OFFENSIVE LINE DOING SOME GOOD PROTECTING. COACH OF THE LINE WAS ASSISTANT AT OLE MISS AND THEN HEAD COACH THERE. AND HE ALSO PLAYED AT GEORGIA UNDER COACH BUTZ IN THE 1950s AND LAST TO TAKE A DROP KICK FOR A FIELD GOAL. AND HE’S DOING ALL THE WORK.>>HE’S UP IN THE MORNING DOING STUFF BEFORE ANYBODY.>>IT’S ALL ABOUT COACH, LET US DO THAT. HE’S ALWAYS ON THE FIELD, ALWAYS TAKING OVER LIKE HE’S 20 YEARS OLD.>>AND YOU HEAR A WHOLE LOT OF STORIES ABOUT MR. COOPER.>>SOME GUYS JUST CAN’T GET OFF THE FIELD. IT’S IN HIS BLOOD.>>THEY WILL DO SOME RAZZLE DAZZLE. AND THAT’S WIDE OPEN.>>THEY NEEDED A SPARK AND THAT MIGHT HAVE DONE IT. GOOD CALL BY COACH HARDY FIGURING THAT THING OUT.>>28 YARD PICK UP. THEY LOOK WILD CAT AND SLAYTON. MILLS. PHAN ON THE RECEIVING END.>>NOBODY WAS AROUND HIM. ON THE STOP WAS BRANDON DELOACH. STUTTER STEP DOWN TO THE BENEDICTINE 39.>>CONTINUING TO MAKE SPEED OUTSIDE. A LOT OF EXPLOSION. NICE TACKLE ON THE SPECIAL TEAMS KICKOFF COVERAGE. GOT BEAT IN THE HOLE THERE.>>LOOK LONG. AND IT IS PICKED OFF. THAT IS STEWART TO THE 30. 35 AND SLIDES AT THE 36.>>WHAT A GREAT JOB BY STEWART INTERCEPTING THE FOOTBALL. PLAYING A COVER TWO ZONE. RECEIVER WAS OPEN EARLY, BUT HE DIDN’T LIKE WHAT HE SAW. CUTS BACK TO HIS RIGHT AND THAT’S TOO FAR TO THROW FOR A YOUNG QUARTERBACK. YOU SEE HE HIGH POINTS THE FOOTBALL WITH HIS HANDS AND MAKES THE PLAY.>>YOU SEE HIM IN THE SPREAD LOOK COMING TO THE NEAR SIDE. POWERS. GIVES IT STRAIGHT AHEAD. THAT LOOKED LIKE JACKSON. CHANCE JACKSON.>>NICE GAIN ON FIRST TOWN BRINGS UP SECOND AND SHORT. AND THAT’S WHAT YOU WANT WHEN YOU’RE PLAYING FOOTBALL. HE IS SPSHLLY WITH THE LEAD LIKE BC DOES.>>BENEDICTINE IN THE HURRY UP. SPINNING. JACKSON OVER 1,000 YARDS. ON THE YEAR. 5’11”, 181 POUND SENIOR.>>15 TOUCHDOWNS ON THE SEASON FOR JACKSON. GOOD RECEIVING SKILLS OUT OF THE BACK FIELD, AS WELL.>>JET SWEEPS HERE FOR BENEDICTINE HAVE NOT BEEN THAT SUCCESSFUL SO FAR TODAY. A LOT OF SPEED AND GUY WITH NUMBER 36 ON HIS CHEST, CAROTHERS, ANOTHER NICE TACKLE.>>WE’RE AT THE THREE MINUTE MARK AND COUNTING DOWN. COMING UP AT HALFTIME, MARK, RAVEN AND OUR OUTSTANDING CREW. THAT’S POWERS COMPLETE TO HOLGUIN.>>GAC STAYED MAN TO THAN WITH HELP OVER THE TOP ON BRAD STEWART THERE. STEVIE POWERS DID A GREAT JOB READING IT OUT AND HITTING THE MAN IN THE PLAT JUST TAKING WHAT THEY GAVE HIM. MOVED THE CHAINS AND CONTINUE TO EAT THE CLOCK UP WITH 2:40 LEFT HERE IN THE FIRST HALF.>>FIRST AND TEN. 23-7 IF YOU JUST JOINED US. POWERS FUMBLES IT AND IT’S STILL LOOSE. WHO GOT IT?>>GAC SAYS THEY DID. POWERS JUST FUMBLED TRYING TO TUCK IT AWAY.>>LIKE A HOT POTATO.>>HE TRIED TO TUCK IT WITH HIS RIGHT ARM AND ABSOLUTELY JUST DROPS THE FOOTBALL. WHAT A SHAME. THERE IT IS. GAC DOES A GOOD JOB JUMPING ON TOP OF IT. THAT’S A BIG, BIG TURNOVER FOR GAC. THEY CAN PUT ANOTHER TOUCHDOWN ON THE BOARD MAKE IT 23-14 WOULD BE HUGE FOR THE SPARTANS.>>MILOVICH WAS IN THE AREA AND I THINK HE WAS CREDITED WITH THE FUMBLE RECOVERY. FIRST AND TEN AT THE BENEDICTINE 48. PHAN IN MOTION. ABERNATHY TRIPPED UP AND FALLS FORWARD DOWN TO ABOUT THE 46.>>NICE JOB THERE BY ZACH SCOTT. 5’11”, 180 POUND LINEBACKER. VERY SHIVITY AND TOUGH TO BRING DOWN.>>SPREAD LOOK AGAIN IN THE WILD CAT. FULL HOUSE BACK FIELD. STRAIGHT AHEAD DOWN TO ABOUT THE 40.>>1:44 AND TICKING. THIRD DOWN COMING UP HERE AND A BIG THIRD DOWN IF THEY WANT TO PUT ANY POINTS ON THE BOARD.>>THIRD AND SHORT. 1:36 COUNTING DOWN.>>GAC WITH ALL THREE OF THEIR TIME-OUTS LEFT.>>PHAN IN MOTION. ABERNATHY STUMBLES. PUSHED BACK. AND HE’LL LOSE A FEW.>>HE WILL. GREAT JOB BY THE BENEDICTINE DEFENSE.>>PAUL WEST AMONG THOSE THERE.>>FANTASTIC JOB BY PAUL WEST. BIG BOY. 6’4″, 290. SITS IN THE MIDDLE OF THAT DEFENSIVE LINE. DOES A GOOD JOB AT IT.>>COOPER ALSO IN THE VICINITY, AS WELL. TURNOVER KIND OF DAY.>>IT REALLY HAS. EACH TEAM WITH THREE TURNOVERS. IT WILL COST YOU DEARLY. THE ONE TAKEN BACK FOR THE TOUCHDOWN IS ONE THAT REALLY MAKES THE MARK. A LITTLE BIT OF A SLOPPY GAME IF BOTH TEAM SO IS FAR. PARTLY SUNNY IS LEFT HANDED AND HE TUCKS IT WITH HIS RIGHT AND ABSOLUTELY LOSES IT. IT LOOKS LIKE THEY WILL GO FOR IT AT THIS POINT ON A FOURTH AND THREE. I LIKE IT. FIND A WAY TO PUT A TOUCHDOWN ON THE BOARD HERE.>>23-7. SPARTANS IN A HOLE WITH A FULL HOUSE BACK FIELD. AND A TIME-OUT.>>FORCES BENEDICTINE TO TAKE THEIR FINAL TIME-OUT. SO NOW YOU FEEL REAL GOOD ABOUT THE DECISION BECAUSE IF THEY GET THE BALL BACK, THEY GOT NO TIME-OUTS AND PROBABLY JUST UNDER A MINUTE TO GET DONE THE FIELD. TRYING TO PUT PRESSURE ON BEN TEAM.>>YOU SEE THE LAST FIVE PLAYOFF APPEARANCE.>>THREE STRAIGHT. CLOSE GAMES LAST COUPLE YEARS.>>THEY DROP DOWN IN CLASSIFICATION. AND NOW GAC, CALHOUN, HOW MANY TIMES DID WE SAY CALHOUN. I REMEMBER THAT GAME. ENGINEER SON, COLUMBUS, COOK COUNTY, DUBLIN. THINK ABOUT THOSE GREAT COACHES. OUR GOOD FRIEND AT LOVEJOY DOWN THERE. COACH HUGHES. WANT TO SEE HIM BACK WORKING AGAIN. MILLS PLENTY OF TIME. SCRAMBLES. LOOKS FOR CAROTHERS. CANNON IN THE FLAT, BUT HE COULDN’T HOLD ON.>>NO, WHAT A PLAY BY MILLS TRYING TO EXTEND THAT FOOTBALL PLAY. DOES A NICE JOB AVOIDING THE PRESSURE. COMES BACK TO HIS LEFT. HERE YOU SEE IT. GETS TIPPED A BIT.>>I GOT TO GET THE TIP DRILL. OH, MAN.>>THAT’S TOUGH TO FOCUS ON THE FOOTBALL WHEN IT CHANGES DIRECTION LIKE THAT. SOMETIMES THEY DON’T HAVE THE BEST HANDS IN THE WORLD, GILL. I DON’T KNOW WHAT POSITION HE PLAYED. BUT THOSE LINEBACKERS HAVE A TOUGH TIME.>>I WAS ALL OVER THE PLACE. HERE IS POWERS. BENEDICTINE WITH THE FOOTBALL. AND HE HAS SOMEBODY OUT THERE OPEN, WIDE OPEN, AND IT IS COMPLETE. LOOKS LIKE THAT IS WESLEY KENNEDY. AND THAT’S A TOUCHDOWN. 59 YARDS. THAT SAME JUMP BALL.>>BEAUTIFUL PLAY DESIGN. POWERS ROLLS OUT TO HIS LEFT. THAT ONE WILL HURT. GREAT JOB BY BENEDICTINE DIALING THAT UP.>>JOHN WESLEY KENNEDY. GRACE TALKED ABOUT WHAT A JOB COACH COOPER HAS DONE COACHING THOSE KIDS UP. YOU POW EVERIES HAS AUGUST THE TIME IN THE WORLD. KENNEDY ABLE TO GET FREE. SEPARATION FROM THE DEFENDER.>>HE’S WELL COVERED. WHAT A GREAT PLAY CALL AND DESIGN BY COACH BRITT AND BENEDICTINE CADETS. PHENOMENAL JOB MAKING GAC PAY FOR GOING FOR THAT FOURTH DOWN JUST AROUND THE 40 YARD LINE. BIG PLAY TODAY ONE PLAY 59 YARDS IN TEN SECONDS. THAT’S HOW LONG THAT THING TOOK. AND LOOK AT HIM JUST REAR BACK AND THROW IT UP. GIVING HIS GUY A CHANCE.>>A JUMP BALL.>>IN POSITION TO MAKE A PLAY. BENEDICTINE HAS DONE A BETTER JOB ALL DAY LONG MAKING PLAYS ON THE FOOTBALL.>>GAC ALL YEAR LONG THE TOP RANKED TEAM IN AA.END. I’M IN A STATE OF SHOCK.>>THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU FUMBLE, GETS RETURNED FOR A TOUCHDOWN. YOU HAVE TO PLAY DEFENSE AND PROTECT THE FOOTBALL AND GAC HAS NOT DONE THAT TODAY.>>GIVE A WHOLE LOT OF CREDIT FROM THE KIDS TO BENEDICTINE.>>SO IMPRESSIVE. POWERS, KENNEDY, STEWART.>>METRICS AND ANALYTICS. POWERS IS 236 YARDS PASSING. 136 TO STEWART. 59 TO KENNEDY.>>GAC WILL HAVE A LOT TO TALK ABOUT AT HALFTIME. ONE MAN TO BEAT. HE CLEARS HIM. AND HE ALMOST WAS ABLE TO STAY INBOUNDS AND TAKES TO THE HOUSE. BUT HE’S BROUGHT DOWN CLOSE TO THE 20 YARD LINE. 65 YARDS RETURN.>>GREAT JOB BY SLAYTON. MAKES A COUPLE GUYS MISS. THEN IT’S ALL ABOUT SPEED. HE HAS SPEED, ILLUSIVENESS. AND WHAT A GREAT JOB BY NUMBER 23 FOR BEN TEE FINDING A WAY TO KICK HIM OUT OF BOUNDS. BECAUSE THAT’S A TOUCHDOWN.>>HOW IMPORTANT IS IT FOR BACK GAC TO GET SOMETHING OUT OF THIS.>>TO GAVE SOME KIND OF CONFIDENCE GOING INTO HALFTIME WOULD BE HUGE.>>AND PHAN DOWN AT ABOUT THE 7 YARD LINE.>>NICE ROUTE BY PHAN. WE CALLED THAT A BENCH ROUTE WHEN WE RAN IT FOR THE FALCONS. TAKES THE CONTACT AND MAKES THE CATCH. GREAT JOB AND GREAT THROW, AS WELL.>>HOLGUIN ON THE STOP. FIRST AND GOAL AT THE 8. 40 SECONDS TO GO. MILLS ROLLING OUT. SEES AN OPENINGS BUT IT QUICKLY GETS CLOSED UP.>>DECIDED TO KEEP IT HIMSELF. THEY WILL TAKE A TIME-OUT TO STOP THE CLOCK.>>YOUR MAN MULLER CLOSED THAT UP. I THINK WE’RE SEEING THE REINCARNATION OF BRIAN OUT THERE.>>IS THAT WHAT THAT IS? PHAN AND KENNEDY AND BRAD STEWART HAS BEEN PHENOMENAL TODAY. FUN TO WATCH THOSE GUYS DO WHAT SMITH AFTER THE GAME TO SEE IF HE NEEDED A RECEIVER THE NEXT FOUR OR FIVE YEARS. STEWART CAN REALLY PLAY FOOTBALL. FUN WATCHING HIM.>>ALL OF US HERE WANT TO STEPD OUR HOLIDAY GREETINGS TO YOU AND YOURS. OUR CAPTAIN AND THE QUEEN ON DOWN TO EVERYBODY. ABERNATHY IN THE WILDCAT. HAS AN OPENING. LUNGES OVER FOR A TOUCHDOWN. 26 TICKS TO GO, TOUCHDOWN GAC. MUCH NEEDED.>>SO IMPORTANT FOR THEM TO GET ON THE BOARD BEFORE HALFTIME. 26 SECONDS LEFT BEFORE HALFTIME. ABERNATHY DOES MOST OF THAT HIMSELF. BUT A GREAT JOB BY GAC. NICE RUN BY ABERNATHY. GIVES YOU SOME CONFIDENCE GOING INTO HALFTIME. WE CAN DO THIS. DEFENSE HAS TO SETTLE DOWN AND GET SOME STOPS.>>KENWORTHY ON FOR THE EXTRA POINT. AND IT IS GOOD. THREE PLAYS, 24 YARD, 25 SECOND ELAPSED TIME.>>WILD CAT AGAIN, DOES A NICE JOB MAKING GUYS MISS AND FINDING THE END ZONE.>>A LOT OF SUCCESS WITH THEM RUNNING OUT OF THE WILDCAT.>>THEY SEE SOMETHING THEY LIKE THERE. GIVES YOU AN EXTRA BLOCKER. ELIMINATES THE QUARTERBACK FROM MAKING A DECISION. NOW IT’S THE RUNNING BACK LINED UP AT THE QUARTERBACK POSITION IN THE SHOTGUN. HAND IT OFF OR KEEP IT HIMSELF. A LITTLE BIT OF MISDIRECTION. SO IT’S WORKED WELL FOR GAC TODAY. TIME OF POSSESSION HAS BEEN FAIRLY EVEN, BUT THE TURNOVERS HAVE HURT THEM. VERY EVENLY MATCHED GAME. TURNOVERS ARE THE DIFFERENCE AND THE PASS GAME FOR BENEDICTINE HAS BEEN PHENOMENAL.>>JACKSON GOT SMACKED. CORRECTION, THAT WAS KENNEDY THAT GOT SMACKED UP TO ABOUT THE 26.>>BEAUTIFUL FORM TACKLE. PICKENS A NICE JOB THERE. COVERING KICK, PLAYING DEFENSE. GUYS ARE ALL OVER THE FOOTBALL FIELD. LOVE THE TEAMS THAT GO BOTH WAYS WITH THEIR ATHLETES. YOU SHOULD WANT TO PLAY ON BOTH SIDES OF THE FOOTBALL IN HIGH SCHOOL.>>BENEDICTINE WILL KNEEL DOWN AND LET THE CLOCK RUN OUT. AND THEN GO IN THE LOCKER ROOM WITH A 30-14 LEAD.>>VERY COMFORTABLE LEAD. BENEDICTINE HAS TO FIGURE OUT IF THEY WANT TO KEEP TRYING TO PASS DOWN THE FIELD OR RUN THE FOOTBALL MORE AND TRY TO EAT UP SOME OF THE CLOCK COMING OUT OF HALF. AND GAC HAS A WHOLE BUNCH OF STUFF TO TALK ABOUT.>>30-14. A GAME THAT STARTED WITH TURNOVERS AND YOUR IMPRESSIONS EARLY ON.>>LOVE WHAT I’M SEEING OUT OF BENEDICTINE IN THE PASSING GAME WITH POWERS AND STEWART. ALL OVER THE FOOTBALL FIELD. GAC JUST TOO MANY MISTAKES.>>LET’S GO DOWNSTAIRS TO GRACE WITH COACH BRITT.>>COACH, OFFENSIVELY, STEWART MADE SOME MASSIVE PLAYS. YOU’VE TALKED ABOUT HIS KNACK FOR GETTING UP IN THE AIR. WE SAW IT FROM KENNEDY, AS WELL. AND POWERS OBVIOUSLY A BIG GAME.>>MADE SOME REALLY GOOD PLAYS. WE’VE LET THEM MAKE SOME PLAYS, WHICH WE CAN’T DO. BUT HAD SOME GOOD STOPS ON DEFENSE. JUST GOT TO LIMIT THE TURN SKROEFRS.>>IT’S BEEN A GAME OF TURNOVERS. IF YOU LOOK IT AT THE POSSESSIONS, THEY’RE PRETTY MUCH EQUIVALENT THE TIME OF POSSESSION. HOW DO IT YOU LIMIT THAT? OBVIOUSLY ALWAYS A KEY.>>WE JUST HAVE TO BE SMARTER. WE CAN’T FUMBLE THE BALL. WE’RE JUST TOO HYPED UP AND WE HAVE TO RELAX.>>AND STEWART, A BIG INTERCEPTION FOR HIM. HE PLAYS BOTH WAYS LIKE ALL YOUR GUYS DO. HOW DO YOU KEEP HIM FIRED UP? HE’S DOING A LOT.>>IT’S INSIDE OF HIM. THERE’S NOTHING I DO.

FOR THE SHARKS, WINS AND LOSSES MEAN SOMETHING NOW. AND THE WORD REWARDING IS A GOOD START.>>IT WAS A LOT OF FUN. THEY GAVE ME $135,000 TO START A PROGRAM AND WE GOT ALL THE EQUIPMENT, WE GOT ALL THE FACILITIES. AND THEN CAME THE 60 BOYS AND IT WAS A LOT OF FUN. AND WE’LL SEE WHAT THEY HAVE LEARNED. COACH SIMPSON HAS PUT TOGETHER A GOOD COACHING STACH. THEY’RE TRYING TO RETOOL IT AND HOPEFULLY IT WILL BE A GOOD PRODUCT.>>WHEN YOU ASK THE SHARKS ABOUT THE TIME INVESTED, WHEN ALL THE SCHOOL HAD WERE PUPS, FOR THE GAMES TO COUNT, THE FIRST LINE TO CROSS OF MANY.>>I’VE BEEN HERE SINCE SOPHOMORE YEAR AND I’VE PLAYED BOTH YEARS AND IT’S LIKE A DREAM COME TRUE BECAUSE I NEVER HAD THE EXPERIENCE BEFORE AND HAD THE CHANCE, THE OPPORTUNITY TO PLAY.

DOESN’T QUITE HIT THE HOLE LIKE THE OTHER TWO KIDS SLAYTON AND ABERNATHY, BUT A GOOD CHANGE OF PACE, A LITTLE BIGGER BODY GIVE HIM SOMETHING TO DO ON THE INSIDE THERE. GAC JUST NEEDS TO ELIMINATE TURNOVERS.>>HE TAKES A BIG HIT. HAD A GREAT CATCH ON THE LATE DRIVE LAST WEEK, 44-41 WIN IN FITZGERALD. GOT HAMMERED AND HELD ON. BUT NOT THAT TIME.>>THIRD AND SEVEN.

NO BODY FAT ON THE KID, HAD ENOUGH TIME KEEPING ENOUGH FLUIDS IN HIM AND HAD A CRAMPING ISSUE, AS WELL. THESE KIDS ARE SO WELL FIT AND SO SLEEK AND FIT, IT’S UNBELIEVABLE. NOT ENOUGH BODY FAT TO HOLD THE WATER DOWN.>>AND THE GAC PROGRAM HASSED A ADOPT WHAT HAD CHIP KELLY IS DOING WITH THE HYDRATION. TAKE US THROUGH THE LAST PLAY.>>READS THE SCREEN PASS OUT TO THE LEFT AND HERE COMES ABERNATHY ON THE HIT.

I HAVEN’T SEEN IT THAT MUCH THIS YEAR. BUT I ASKED THE MEDICAL STAFF, DO YOU THINK MAYBE TRANSITIONING FROM THE COLD WINTER WEATHER TO THE DOME CAUSES THOSE CRAMPS. AND HE SAID I DON’T KNOW, I THINK JUST CERTAIN PLAYER RAILROADS PRONE TO IT. SO HE DOESN’T SEEM TO THINK THAT THE DOME ATMOSPHERE CAUSES THE CRAMPS. BUT WE’LL SEE IF ABERNATHY IS ABLE TO GET BACK OUT ON THE FIELD.>>A GOOD POINT. YOU TALKED ABOUT THE DIFFERENCE EARLIER.>>IT’S INTERESTING. IT DEPENDS WHAT IS GOING ON WITH YOUR BODY. MAYBE HE’S BEEN SICK THE NIGHT BEFORE OR DURING THE WEEK. YOU HAVE ALL WEEK TO HYDRATE AND SOME GUYS ARE JUST PRONE TO IT MORE THAN OTHERS.>>IN TALKING TO COACH HARDY THIS WEEK, HE SAID THEY HAVE EMBRACED THAT HYDRATION PROGRAM THAT CHIP KELLY DID AT THE UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, NOW DOING IT WITH THE PHILADELPHIA EAGLES AND EVERYBODY IS COPYING THAT.

WE’LL BE RIGHT BACK TO ATLANTA.>>>BACK HERE IN ATLANTA, YOU SEE THE SCORE IN THE FOURTH QUARTER. BENEDICTINE 45-21. THEY HAD TWO LOSSES THE CADETS. ONE LOSS AUGUST 22 AGAINST THE GAC SPARTANS. AND THEN A LOSS TO VIDALIA AND THATS WILL TEAMED TO GET THE TEAM BACK IN SYNC AGAIN.>>THEY BROUGHT THEMSELVES TOGETHER AND HAVE DONE THINGS BEYOND JUST WHAT WE ASK.
