Central offense looks to get in gear against Creekside

THOMASVILLE — The offensive struggles Thomas County Central experienced last Friday night still has coach Bill Shaver baffled four days later.

“I don’t know where it came from,” Shaver said. “It’s not something that showed up in practice.”

The miscues included two fumbled snaps, the first two all season, two interceptions, also, the first two of the season and a missed extra point. It added up to an 18-12 defeat for the Yellow Jackets. It also dropped Central to a No. 2 seed in this week’s first round of the Class AAAAA playoffs. Central hopes to rectify those errors when it hosts Creekside Friday night.

“Why you have the fumbled snaps, I don’t know. One of them went straight up in the air right through the quarterback’s hands. The other one I think was short snapped a little bit and didn’t get all the way up,” Shaver said. “Why those things happen, I don’t know. The interceptions (we) were not making a good decision. We’ve got to make a better decision, make a quicker throw, quicker decision there.”

Despite the lack of execution at times, Central did have moments of offensive success. It ran for 279 yards, led by Adam Choice’s 158. Central had a touchdown drive of 98 yards.

“We had some really good things that occurred on offense the other night,” Shaver said.
