Madison Central Set For Trip To Bourbon County


The Indians are looking to erase last weeks game with Frederick Douglas from their minds as they set their sights on Bourbon County (2-2) this week. Indians will be leaving Madison County for the first time this season.

The Indians (3-2) will be looking to get more out of the passing game this week, only 30 yards last week through the air, and reestablish the rushing attack, only 134 yards last week. A lot of the credit goes to Douglas and their defense but you know the Indians will be looking to show everyone that one game does not make a season and they are still players in class 6A.

They are led CaMarr Myers who has rushed for 597 yards and 8 touchdowns on the season. Quarterback Jake Broughton has passed for 475 yards and 4 TDs but also has 3 interceptions on the season. Defensively the Colonels have only allowed 33 passing yards and have allowed 164 rushing yards according to the stats they have submitted online.

For the Indians they will look to get the #5 rusher in class 6A Freddy Chenault going. Chenault has rushed for 557 yards and 10 touchdowns on the year. Derrick Miller will look to get the passing game going as he enters the game with 357 yards on the season through the air but he has added another 245 yards on the ground. Ethan Hahn has 235 yards rushing and is second on the team in catches with 8. Blake Muntz leads the receiving corp with 9 for 103 yards. The defense remains powerful forcing 12 turnovers through the first 5 games. Juett Jackson leads the way with 57 tackles, 38 of those solo.
