H.S. FOOTBALL: Young Indians fall to Pulaski in scrimmage

RICHMOND — For most of players wearing Madison Central uniforms, Thursday’s scrimmage against Pulaski County in Richmond was their first real extended game action at the varsity level.

So it wasn’t surprising that there were more than a few mistakes.

Still, there were also some highlights as the Indians suffered a 26-13 loss to the Maroons.

“We are young and that’s obvious,” Central coach Bert Browne said. “We gave up several third-and-long plays and fourth-and-long plays and I think a lot of that has to do with youth. Any time that you are as young as we are, you are going to have guys make mistakes. It’s good to get a scrimmage under our belt so we can see some things. Hopefully, we’ve learned from it.”

After graduating most of their starters on offense, the Indians were only able to get into the end zone once against Pulaski County.

Junior tight end Sam Jones caught a 10-yard touchdown pass from Kameron Presnell late in the third quarter.

The Indians also got a pair of field goals from Will Nash, both in the first half.

Three quarterbacks took snaps for Central — Presnell (sophomore), sophomore Aaron Slone and freshman Zach Hardin.

All three played well at times.

Presnell hit John Williams on a long pass in the first quarter. Slone connected with Jones for a 30-yard gain in the second quarter.

“Kameron played awful well,” Browne said of Presnell. “He made some things happen. All three of the kids did something good.”

Central got back within seven points on Jones’ touchdown catch, but Pulaski sealed the victory with a 6-yard TD run by Jackson Moberly with seven minutes left in the fourth quarter.

“We’ve got to get better,” Browne said. “Luckily we won’t be playing a football team that throws the ball next week, but (Harlan County) is very physical and they will hit you in the mouth.”

Central is set to open the season next Saturday (Aug. 24) at home against Harlan County.
