Chiefland’s offense: Ground and Pound
The Indians’ identity is very similar to the one that advanced to the 1A State semifinals a year ago — they will run the ball all night and make you stop them.
Fisher, Thomas, senior Junior Brown, and junior Anthony Blackman are all capable ball carriers for the Indians. Chiefland used all four to amass just over 200 yards rushing against Wildwood on 10/7.
“Any time we need hard yardage, line Junior up and give it to him,” said Chiefland coach James Corbin. “He’s going to get three or four yards. And when you have an athlete like Clint, you have to get the ball in his hands. In one word, he’s electric.”
The Indians got five sacks from two freshmen — Jon Adams and Wykel Howard. Adams, who was second-team all-state last year as an eighth grader, had four QB takedowns alone. Three of them came in the second half, the most crucial of those three were in overtime, pushing the Wildcats back from the Chiefland 10 to the 18-yard line.1
