Walking wounded

Central nursing key injuries

THOMASVILLE — Two days had passed since Thomas County Central’s grueling first-round playoff tilt with Creekside.

At Monday morning’s practice, the Yellow Jackets were still feeling the effects of one of the most physical games they’ve experienced this year.

“It was a hard-fought game,” said quarterback Adam Choice, who had to be peeled off the ground at Thomas County Stadium on several occasions. “I’m very sor,e but I’ve got to push through it and get ready for this Friday.”

Senior offensive lineman Hunter Parmer added, “It was probably one of the most physical games we’ve played in. This week we’ve got to ice and be careful that we don’t overstretch. I think we’ll be ready Friday.”

Among the major concerns is junior running back Deondre Cooksey. He re-injured an ankle that kept him out of the region game against Hardaway earlier this year. On Monday, Shaver said Cooksey was questionable for Friday’s Class AAAAA second-round game at Northside-Warner Robins.

Other injuries include junior tight end Peyton Singletary, who is nursing a twisted ankle, and junior linebacker Jarell Jones, who has a sore knee.

“He’s getting low-blocked a lot,” said Central coach Bill Shaver about Jones. “He’s still a little sore from that. He’s battled through it the last four weeks.

“He’s kind of the glue that holds our defense there. He’s a smart guy that gets us lined up right. He does a good job of reading things. He’s kind of the glue over there for us on defense.”
