Metcalfe County Hornets to face Clinton County

GLASGOW — Freddie Harbison, the first-year head football coach at Metcalfe County High School, has preached physicality to his team since the first practice of the preseason. The big picture goal for the young Hornets squad is to develop this team into a big, strong, physical presence. Harbison wants opposing teams to remember the night they played the Hornets.

Things didn’t quite go that way for Metcalfe County in its 47-6 loss last Friday against the bigger, more physical Warren East Raiders. Now Harbison hopes things will go differently when the Hornets travel to Clinton County on Friday.

“I told the kids at the first of the year that one of our main goals is to be the toughest team on our schedule by next season. We’re trying to get the kids more physical,” said Harbison. “We had some kids that stuck their necks into the fray last Friday against Warren East, a team that was bigger, quicker than we were.

“The only thing I didn’t appreciate from last Friday was, after watching film, we had some kids that tried to avoid contact. We want to be the most physical team on our schedule and once that happens, good things start happening. But it doesn’t happen over night.”
