david5164 is on a distinguished road
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.
