Underdog Warriors turn into champions

Central Christian Academy takes on Marion Military Institute Thursday night in a battle of unbeaten teams in their regions.

The Central Christian Warriors have been impressive in their first three victories of the year. Their defensive play has been stifling, and they have only allowed two touchdowns over the last three games.

Offensively they have averaged over 20 points a game, and have controlled the ball both in the air, and on the ground.

Chris A. Poe had an outstanding offensive performance last week against Cornerstone catching 10 passes for a 156 yards, and he also kicked two crucial punts that pinned Cornerstone deep in their own territory. Jay Hale also had a good performance on the defensive side of the ball with 13 solo tackles, and one assist.

MMI is looking to this year to be the year that they prove everyone wrong. MMI has more returning players this year than any other past year, and they are bigger stronger, and faster than any of the past few years. The depth that MMI has this year could be the key to their success.
