Coach Greg Cotten knew if Tullahoma Middle School played the same defense against the Pioneers he’d seen on film, Warren County could make big plays.But even coach Cotten had to be shocked when the Pioneers scored 46 points in the first half on their way to destroying Tullahoma 46-14 Tuesday night at Nunley Stadium.Christian Wilkinson threw three first-half passes and each went for touchdowns. Wilkinson hit Rickie King for 53-yard and 38-yard scores and also hooked up with Darius Wright on a 43-yard touchdown pass. Wilkinson added a two-point conversion run and pass to Ryan Nokes as the Pioneers’ offense had a field day against a hapless Tullahoma defense.The offensive explosion was a glimpse into what coach Cotten thought his team could do all along.“I think in the first half we finally played up to our potential and it reflected on the scoreboard,” said Cotten.
