Byers goes to 3-0
By BARRY BURLESON
The Coldwater Cougars may still be wondering what hit them.
The H.W. Byers rushing attack crushed the Cougars for 363 yards Friday night en route to a 38-14 win. The Lions, under first-year head coach Chris Daniels, are off to a 3-0 start.
“We ran the ball; we controlled the clock; and we put up points,” Daniels said.
“The big guys up front (in the offensive line) are doing an excellent job.”
Byers also picked up 98 yards passing for a total offensive production of 461 yards in the road victory.
“We’re ecstatic to be 3-0,” Daniels said, “but we’re still taking it one day at a time. We still have to get better. Every practice, every game, we want to improve.”
Marquis Moore was the main man for the Lions. He carried 23 times for 190 yards, two touchdowns and a two-point conversion.
Justin Sellers had 11 rushes for 72 yards and a touchdown.
Courtney Bean followed with eight rushes for 51 yards, a touchdown and a two-point conversion.
Quarterback Anthony Rubin kept the ball 16 times for 50 yards, a touchdown and a two-pointer. He was also nine of 15 passing for 98 yards.
Germaine Glass caught a pass for a two-point conversion.
Byers was up 22-0 at halftime and won by 24.
“We’re playing pretty well on both sides of the football but we’re also having mental lapses that we can’t afford to have,” Coach Daniels said.
He said his Lions must continue to work hard, “day in and day out,” in preparation for Division 2-2A play, which starts October 4.
Next up this Friday is a non-conference contest. S.V. Marshall visits H.W. Byers on homecoming night. The Tigers are 0-3.
“There are three parts to the season – pre-district, district and the playoffs,” Coach Daniels said. “It’s our goal to keep improving and be there come playoff-time.”
