even­tu­ally seemed to wear the Henry County de­fense down.

“They’re com­ing to­gether week af­ter week,” Edgar said. “For most of them, this is just their fourth var­sity foot­ball game, and tonight, it was the first var­sity game for my left tackle. They are all young, and are grow­ing and learn­ing. Lit­tle by lit­tle, they are mak­ing huge strides.”

The line was with­out its start­ing left tackle, An­druw Bin­ion, who was side­lined for a few weeks with an in­jury he sus­tained in last week’s game. How­ever, that didn’t stop Al­covy's French­men from get­ting con­sis­tent push off the line of scrim­mage, which was an achieve­ment no­ticed by An­der­son, who said he I s learn­ing to gain more trust in his line.

“My line did an ex­cel­lent job, but I just need to trust them more,” he said. “If I have trust in my line, along with con­fi­dence in my­self, we’re go­ing to be a great team,”

With the win, Al­covy will en­ter the bye week with a chance to rest and re­cu­per­ate be­fore it takes on their last non-re­gion op­po­nent, For­est Park, which the Ti- gers bested by a point in last sea­son’s con­test.

“We’ve already got some film, which were go­ing to start on Sun­day, then we will give them the week off be­fore get­ting back to it the week af­ter," Edgar said.

Their home­com­ing game against the Pan­thers will take place on Sept. 22 at Sharp Sta­dium with a 7:30 p.m. kick­off time.
