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.
