This is where we are seeing the youth for Russell to come through on the offensive side of the ball. The one play for PC was the 52 yard pass play to start the game and a 6-0 PC lead. Other than that PC had only 40 more yards in 1st half and in the 2nd half was held scoreless. The offense for Russell is way better when Church is playing QB even though he is fighting through a shoulder injury. Russell tried Wilburn at QB to start 2nd half and the two series the offense did nothing until Church was inserted back into QB and he threw a couple of big receptions and Russell scored two more TD's to win 49-14. The offense even though losing a couple of RB's for the season still has 4-5 top RB's in Bates, Duvall, Conley, Sharp, and Anderson. If Church at QB could get through this Shoulder Injury and I don't know the details of his Shoulder Injury but he is still making big plays throwing the ball. It would be great if his Shoulder could get near 100% before end of season and before the playoffs gets going after the season. The offense looked good and the young RB's did well tonight for Russell. With Bates, Duvall, Conley, Anderson, and Sharp running the ball I would run 80% of the time when you have Duvall and Bates run the ball for 14 times for 267 yards. The remaining RB's of Conley, Sharp, and Anderson did well too. Church threw the ball well when he needed a big play or 1st down. Russell just needs to get the defense doing better on the pass play and the special teams. Russell gave up a 52 yard TD Pass to start the game and they another kickoff return go for 60 yards and also had a punt blocked so the special teams and the CB's on the defense have to get better. I know Coach Maynard said Russell has lost 3 starting CB's this year and you could see it especially last week giving u p over 300 yards passing and this week's 52 Yard TD pass to start the game. If Russell could get better in those 2 areas Russell will be fine when the playoffs start in about 4 weeks.

Good win the kids. The playoffs really don't hold much hope this year. The Devils will have to travel to Boyle. The rebels will end the Devils season in Danville. Russell needs to concentrate on developing identity plays for down and distance situations. Devils need to bring back the DEFEND THE R mentality on defense. Russell's defense is soft, especially in run support from secondary.

If Russell makes strides toward becoming more physical on defense and balanced on offense they could upset the Rams at the end of the season. A win against the Rams will help end a dissapointing season on a positive note.

IMO Russell would also benefit from some under center plays. Bates runs hard give him a fullback to lead in front him. Church being under center would give Devils flexibility and promote more physical play rather than zone blocking schemes were lineman just Waller on each other, DRIVE PEOPLE BACKWARDS!

Russell could easily be 6-1 or 5-2 if we didn't have 5-6 injuries on the team that were two-way players. When you lose a Ryan Stump that is 6-3 and a outstanding WR on offense and an outstanding DE on defense that really hurts both the offense and defense. Then the injuries just kept coming for the year in Brinkman and Layne, two more seniors that were two-way players. We also didn't have QB Church all summer and pre-season with his Shoulder Injury and he is still not 100% throwing the ball. We had out a few games RB Anderson, Kicker Ewing, and Giles Thursday night. When you lose 1 or 2 players that can be replaced but when you lose 5 or 6 instrumental players on both sides of the ball that just can't be replaced. Coach Maynard was saying in the ADI last week that we had 3 starting CB's out with injuries and that really hurt in the Fleming County game. The youth has stepped up in last 2 games and we can see with the Freshman that has played that Russell will be outstanding in the next 4-5 years.
