The Iceman cometh
Placeholder Image
Lee Carden excels at receiver, starts at safety and does all the snapping on special teams for the Warren County High School football team. Now the player nicknamed “Iceman” will be asked the call plays the Pioneers.With junior Hunter Mullican and freshman Christian Wilkinson each injured, Carden expects to get the call at quarterback tonight when the Pioneers travel to Shelbyville to take on the Golden Eagles.The Pioneers saw both of their quarterbacks suffer injuries in the first week of the season, forcing coach Tommy Johnson to reach deep in his bag of tricks to find a player to take snaps.Enter Carden, who has done everything but mow the field and do the laundry for Warren County. Carden spent time in the offseason running some “Wildcat” looks for the Pioneers, but now he’ll be asked to lead the Pioneer offense on a regular basis until one of the two regular quarterbacks can return.Mullican was injured last week against DeKalb County on special teams as he took a knee to the helmet while making a tackle.
