    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.

    “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.”
