BCHS football rescheduled due to Ian; RH idle this week

Ian is apparently not a football fan.

As a result of the projected path of the newest named storm which could hit our area this weekend several high school football games have been rescheduled including Bryan County’s game at Montgomery County.

The Redskins (3-2) will play at Montgomery County (3-2) at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday. Richmond Hill, recuperating from a 51-17 loss at Coffee County, is idle this week. The Wildcats (3-3) will resume play next Friday when they host Camden County in their Region 1-7A opener.

Bryan County is rebounding from a 36-20 loss to Telfair County last Friday night in which it was missing several injured players.

Because of the unexpected short week none of those players are expected to be on the field as Coach Cherard Freeman is focused on getting everyone healthy for next week’s Region 3A-DI game at home against Metter.

Under normal circumstances the Redskins would be favored to beat the Eagles based on comparative scores. However, this week is not “normal circumstances” for Bryan County which, while having several players on the mend, have lost leading rusher and star linebacker Austin Clemons for the season due to a knee injury suffered against Portal.

The two teams have three opponents in common. Both teams lost to Telfair County with the Eagles taking a 48-23 whipping. Bryan County beat Wheeler County, 40-13, and Treutlen County, 56-0, while Montgomery County lost to Wheeler, 21-7, and beat Treutlen, 28-10.

The Eagles rarely pass as they have thrown only 34 passes choosing instead to rely on a strong running game led by senior Cameron Wallace whose 624 yards make him one of the top running backs in Class A.
