The Caverna High School Colonels have been spending the past week preparing for Friday’s road game at Holy Cross in Louisville. Almost every week this season, the Colonels have had to strategize for a team rolling along with victories. It is different this week. The Cougars will come into Friday’s game winless in seven outings and struggling to put points on the board.
That would be great news for most football coaches, right? Not Caverna boss Rodney Middleton. Middleton knows Holy Cross, a traditional powerhouse in Class A football, is a whole lot better than their record indicates.
“You can’t be fooled by their record. They’re 0-7, but you have to remember it is Holy Cross,” said Middleton, whose team is 1-6 on the year. “They bring in kids from the confines of Jefferson County (Louisville). So, you know they have talented players.
“I know they’re really big up front. They’re young, but they’re very competitive and they’ve been in every game. Friday is their Homecoming so they’re going to come after us with everything they have.”
The game is slated for 6:30 p.m. CST start. However, Middleton said the game will probably start until 7 p.m.
