Tough-luck Spartans head to Upstate in search of first win
Placeholder Image
Will Rice must feel a little like a restaurant host. When two people leave, two more are seated.In Rice’s instance, it’s not that simple.Heading into tonight’s game at the Anderson Cavaliers, the Camden Military Academy head coach was excited about the fact that his team would regain the services of safety/wide out Tim Coleman, along with two-way lineman Patrick Mulligan. But as soon as those two returned to the practice field, the Spartans lost two more players when James Horn and John Blount were diagnosed with concussion-like symptoms and are not slated to be in uniform tonight.It was another case of running in place for CMA (0-3), which made strides in last week’s 28-13 loss to East Clarendon.“It seems like every week, somebody is getting injured around here,” Rice said of losing Horn, a starting fullback and defensive end, along with Blount, who is also used on both sides of the ball.The tradeoff is the return of Coleman and Mulligan, which was the silver lining on an otherwise gloomy day at Tuesday’s practice session in East Camden.
