Big challenge awaits Yellow Jackets

THOMASVILLE — The non-region gauntlet continues Friday night for Thomas County Central.

A week after losing to Class AAAAAA Colquitt County in a 35-33 nailbiter, Central will look to rebound against familiar foe Marist. The War Eagles have won at least nine games in 17 of the last 18 seasons. They got off to a winning start last week with a 30-13 thrashing of Clarke Central.

“They’re a high-quality football team,” Central coach Bill Shaver said. “They traveled to Clarke Central last Friday and handled a very, very talented Clarke Central team very well.

“Clarke Central’s got a lot of great athletes. Marist did a really good job of controlling their athletes and doing what they do on offense.”

What the War Eagles do is rely on their steady ground attack, led by quarterback Myles Willis. He rushed for 159 yards and two touchdowns in the season opener.

“They’ve got a heck of an athlete at quarterback now, I know for sure, the best athlete they’ve had at quarterback when we’ve played them,” said Shaver, whose team holds a 5-1 edge in the series history. “He’s every bit as talented as Adam (Choice) is as a quarterback. He can really, really run. He’s the focal point of their offense.”
