Green Wave’s younger generation

October 3, 2012

Whether it be the junior varsity squad or the second string on varsity, playing time for the younger members of a school team is extremely important for the longevity of a program.
In last Friday’s game against the Hernando High School Tigers, the Green Wave was able to put enough points up on the board to afford Coach Chris Chambless the opportunity to put some of his younger players into the the game, including sophomore Dason Thomas (#9), sophomore Josh Ewing (#2), and junior Jayson Burnett (#7).
Each of these three were able to make plays throughout the last quarter of the game, Thomas scoring the final West Point touchdown of the night, Ewing making tremendous carries and completing some good passes, and Burnett showing great decision-making in the pocket.

Coach Chambless has expressed that it is his hope that opportunities like this will present themselves more often during games so that the younger players can get their feet wet playing at a varsity level.
Hamblin Stadium looks to host the players from Clarksdale this Friday at 7:30pm.
