Another Shutout for Bronchos

CENTRAL HIGH — Central High football again dismantled an inferior opponent on Friday. This time, it was struggling Geary on the wrong end of a 48-0 blowout.

The game had a lot of similarities to the last three games, which were also blowouts. It was the third shutout in four games for the Bronchos (6-0, 3-0). Also, the offense has been exceptional in the first half of the season producing 303 points on offense through five games (more than 60 points per game).

Coach Keith Burton was happy with the performance as it showed again the focus of the team to not take a weaker opponent lightly. He was particularly pleased with the fight from the defense to preserve the doughnut on the scoreboard.

“Our defense just continues to get better each week,” Burton said. “Our kids have really taken pride in the way we defense.”

The difference seems to be the senior defensive leaders for Central High, like linebacker Deekota Williams and defensive lineman George Wagoner, who are always trying to keep their teammates fighting until the final whistle. Burton couldn’t be happier with their play against Geary (1-5, 1-4).

“Those guys really take pride in trying to get a shutout,” Burton said. “They keep people out of the endzone.”

Kevin Harris again provided the explosiveness on offense sprinting right by Geary’s defense. This included a touchdown run on the first play from scrimmage.

“Once you get the ball in his hands, he can really do something with it,” Burton said. “He does a great job but our guys around him take a lot of pride in blocking.”

Next Thursday Central will host Fox, it’s toughest opponent this season so far. The Foxes (5-1, 4-1) head into the game coming off three blowouts of their own.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
