Harrison Central hopes it can ‘catch on’ early in ’16

August 18, 2016 - Finding Carter

Quarterback Tavis Williams detonate onto a prep stage final deteriorate in a large way.

New manager Casey Cain non-stop adult a offense, and a youth responded, completing 103 of 214 passes for 1,610 yards and 16 touchdowns to arrange among a Coast’s streamer passers.

Oddly enough, maybe a biggest doubt confronting Harrison Central streamer into a 2016 deteriorate surrounds a flitting game. While Williams is behind for his comparison campaign, a Red Rebels’ receiving corps earnings usually 8 catches for 101 yards and one touchdown, all belonging to comparison Tristan Moran.

“We need some guys Tavis can rest on,” Cain said.

The second-year manager is anticipating to build abyss during receiver as a deteriorate progresses to best fit his widespread attack. Entering a team’s Aug. 26 opener during McComb, Cain has circled comparison ball standout Logan Virgilio and 6-foot-2 sophomore Isaac Harris as dual players who could arise to a tip of a abyss chart.

“I’m anticipating for large things out of Logan. I’m awaiting him to have a large year,” Cain said. “He had a good summer in 7-on-7s. He’s a super intelligent kid. On a ball margin he’s rarely competitive. we know ball kids have good hand-eye coordination, so we always kind of knew he’d be OK.”

As for Harris, Cain sees an contestant who could not usually turn a arguable pass catcher, though who could presumably widen a margin as well.

“His intensity could be great,” Cain said. “He’s a tall, skinny immature kid. we consider a some-more he plays a improved he’s going to get. If he develops some certainty he could be unequivocally good.”

Cain is also confident 6-foot-3 youth parsimonious finish Chase Jones can turn a cause in a team’s flitting attack.

Strong belligerent attack

The Red Rebels should once again have one of a biggest descent lines in South Mississippi as all though one of a projected starters tip a beam during 290-plus pounds.

Jacob Shoemaker (6-foot-5, 290) is approaching to be a personality of a line during left tackle, with Calvin Hunter (6-5, 330) during right tackle, Bryce Ramsey (6-2, 315) during core and Wes Carter (6-3, 305) during right guard. Allen Funk (5-10, 225) and LaKeith Young (5-11, 230) are still duking it out for a other ensure spot.

“Right now that’s a strength of a team,” Cain said. “There’s no doubt.”

In further to a clever line, a HCHS offense will be powered by using behind Keon Moore (5-11, 195). The youth emerged as one of a tip using backs a year ago, rushing for 1,016 yards and 6 touchdowns. The Red Rebels are anticipating for some-more of a same from Moore.

“Keon loves contact. He loves it,” Cain said. “I’m anticipating with him using a football this year he’ll combine on attack a sideline and scoring instead of anticipating somebody to run over.”

New-look defense

The Red Rebels’ invulnerability will positively have a new demeanour this deteriorate as usually dual starters are back.

In ’15, HCHS was bolstered by a series of defensive dynamos like Jordon Beaton, Michael Boyce, Dee White, Steven Biggs Jr., Aaron Rainey, Chase Crosby and others. The organisation helped extent Region 4-6A opponents to 153 points, third best in a eight-team league. Now that a aforementioned organisation has graduated, Cain is looking to comparison defensive tackle Noah Vance and comparison defensive behind Nehemiah Thompson to lead a organisation while a rest of a starters get acclimated to their new roles.

“You have to be clever adult front and (Vance is) a clever kid,” Cain said. “He plays with a lot of appetite and heart and is genuine relentless. He gives we all he has. In dual years we don’t consider he has ever missed a workout.”

Thompson is presumably a fastest Red Rebel on a organisation and could play cornerback, reserve and nickle back.

“He’s genuine fast, intelligent and has a good conduct on his shoulders,” Cain said.

Cain has high hopes for Charvis Gandy and Jordan Taylor to be successful flanking Vance along a defensive line.

“I unequivocally consider Jordan and Charvis can reinstate a guys we had final year,” he said. “They have good length and unimaginable quickness.”

Aaron Mallette is also penciled in to start adult front. In a secondary, Joqundre Herlong, Brandon Billingsley and Artrell Petties will be counted on to assistance Thompson. Rashaud Fairley, Darius Roscoe, Javion Khan and Doneiro Barnett are all projected to see poignant time during linebacker.

After opening a deteriorate on a road, HCHS earnings home Sept. 2 to face Moss Point.

The Red Rebels transport to Pearl River Central (Sept. 9) and horde Picayune (Sept. 16) before Region 4-6A play kicks off Sept. 23 during George County.
