Al­covy looks for first win against Bald­win

The Covington News - - SPORTS - SHA­KEEM HOL­LOWAY shol­loway@cov­

With its loss to East­side, Al­covy didn’t get the start to its sea­son that it wanted, and play­ing against Bald­win will be even tougher.

Bald­win is 2-0 to start its sea­son and will look to keep that un­de­feated streak go­ing against the Tigers.

Al­covy has an in­ex­pe­ri­enced team, a well-known fact to this point. In prac­tice, the coaches are look­ing to in­still dis­ci­pline to their young group of guys. The Tigers have the tal­ent, it’s just a ques­tion of putting it to­gether.

At quar­ter­back, Bubba Hick­son will con­tinue to grow and de­velop, and he al­ready has a good deep ball. Hick­son missed on a few throws against East­side, but the Tigers also had some costly dropped passes in their last matchup, some­thing they will look to cor­rect in this next game.

At the skill po­si­tions are D’An­thony Bell and Kenyon Kel­ley, both se­niors who have the abil­ity to make big plays on of­fense. Bell, who’s also ex­cep­tional on de­fense, is a good strong re­ceiver who can get big yards off screen plays. Kel­ley makes plays in the run­ning game and the pass­ing game. Kel­ley runs like a bull with horns, re­lent­lessly straight through de­fend­ers.

The Tigers kick off against Bald­win tonight at 7:30 p.m. at Sharp Sta­dium.
