CAMDEN TAILBACK KENDRICE SLATER carries Lower Richlands Stephon Gridine for a ride on one of his 29 carries in Fridays Bulldog win in Hopkins.
HOPKINS --- Don’t tell Kendrice Slater he was operating behind a patchwork offensive line. The Camden tailback is having none of that talk.Slater, a 5-foot-11, 212-pound senior, was surprised when informed he rushed for 201 yards in the Bulldogs’ 28-20 win over Lower Richland on Friday. He then proceeded to heap all the praise on a front line which, coming into the game, was a work in progress and then, had to be re-tooled in the second half when a first-time starter went down with an injury.“I don’t think the game plan was for me to run the ball that much,” Slater said following his 29-carry, two-touchdown performance.
