Pioneers hope to take down Jets
Placeholder Image
The slate is clean for the Warren County High School football team entering tonight’s game against the Cumberland County Jets.The Pioneers have opened up the season with two straight home losses, but enter tonight with an 0-0 record in District 6-AAA.If Warren County wants to make a return trip to the playoffs, a win tonight would go a long way to trying to secure a spot.Standing in the Pioneers way are the Jets, who have also began the season 0-2.Cumberland County lost its opening game 34-14 at home against Bledsoe County before dropping a 34-28 contest at Campbell County last week.The Jets and Pioneers have more in common than just their records.Both teams have struggled with turnovers this season, with Warren County coming in with five through two games while the Jets turned the ball over four times in last week’s game alone.Like the Pioneers, the Jets focus most of their offensive attack on the ground. In last week’s loss, senior Tyler Howard rushed for 245 yards on 23 carries and had two touchdowns. Howard, a returning District 6-AAA performer, also had four fumbles, two of which were recovered in the redzone.Warren County’s star offensive player through two weeks has been sophomore Cameron Lusk.
