CEDRICK CUNNINGHAM ICED North Centrals win over rival Andrew Jackson with a last-minute interception.
Like the song says, sometimes “you don’t know what you’ve got ‘til it’s gone.”All week, the North Central football coaches told their defensive squad to prepare for an aerial onslaught from Andrew Jackson quarterback Kolby Whitley. Well, that was fine and dandy until the Volunteer senior left the game in the second half with an injury and was replaced by a player who took the guests in a different offensive direction.The change in quarterback, however, did not result in a change in fortune for the Vols who fell to 0-7 on the year following a 27-21 loss to the host Knights in Boonetown on Friday.The victory gave Louis Clyburn’s troops a 4-3 record and a 2-1 mark in Region 4-AA play. But it was hardly the one-sided affair which some may have thought this one might turn into.
