The Perry Central Commodores are undefeated, sitting at 5-0 with every win redefining the program...
Coach Justin Haddix knows his schedule is tough, but knows the rewards it could bring come postseason.
He likes the way his kids are responding; he likes the progression over the past few weeks.
Now, they have another test this Friday when undefeated Rockcastle County comes to PCC.
However, the question mark for Haddix, the status of Rockets Running back, Clarke Rowe, who separated his shoulder last week against Pulaski County.
"I expect to see Clarke Rowe here playing if it was me,” Haddix says. I know them. They're 5-0 and we're 5-0. And I expect their best effort and I know they're going to give it. It doesn't matter if Rowe...Clarke Rowe is a great player and I expect him to be playing, but if he doesn't then you know Rockcastle is going to give that same effort and play hard-nosed defense and offense is going to come right at you."
If Rowe is unable to play, the Rockets have plenty of options to put points on the board.
Corey McPhetridge can air it out to his receivers and rock can platoon running backs with Zack Reams, Damien McDaniel and Chris Luna.
Coach Scott Parkey says the rockets will be just fine...
“We’ve been able to use those guys just as much as Clarke,” Parkey says. “And it's going to be really important that they step their game up. They're going to be getting more carries. Also, we're going to add B.B. Bradley in to the mix. He's a really good running back, but we only have to play him one way right now. We only have to play him there at the linebacker so we feel really good about our running back stable."
