    Sports Editor

    LYNNVILLE—Perry Central will try to get its running game going against a team that also likes to run when the Commodores visit Tecumseh in football Friday at 7 p.m.
    The 2-2 Braves use “kind of a pistol look” on offense, said Perry Central Coach Greg Gibson. “Sometimes they’ll have three receivers on one side and sometimes double receivers on both sides - a lot of spread stuff.”
    Those receivers are usually decoys, though, as the Braves run the ball 70 percent of the time.

    BOONVILLE—Tell City will try to stop Boonville’s running game when they meet in football Friday at 7 p.m.

    “He’s very fast,” said Tell City Coach Josh Teague. “He’ll probably be the fastest running back we’ve faced so far.
    “They’ll run inside, but he really likes to bounce - if he sees an open lane to the outside, he’ll hit it and hit it hard.”
