What happens when the unstoppable force runs into — or around or through — the movable object?
Fans may find Friday night when Hardaway visits Thomas County Stadium for Thomas County Central’s regular season home finale.
The 2-5 Hawks (0-2 in Region 1-AAAAA) will bring with them the region’s worst run defense. Hardaway had allowed 192 yards rushing per game, heading into last week’s 29-12 loss at Bainbridge.
Central coach Bill Shaver said the Hawks’ biggest problem in slowing the run may reside on the other side of the ball.
“A lot of teams that have an offense that isn’t a physical offense, when they practice against themselves, they’re not used to someone playing real physical against them,” Shaver said. “I think maybe that’s where they are.
“They do a lot of spread stuff, throwing and stuff on the perimeter.”
No matter the reason, a struggling run defense isn’t a good recipe for success when facing the 7-1 Yellow Jackets, who are atop the region at 3-0 and are ranked No. 6 in Class AAAAA.
