Pike Central Chargers face tough test at Southridge By Dennis Marshall Press-Dispatch Sports Editor Pike Central will be on the road in the regular sea- son for the final time this Friday, when they travel to Southridge (6 -1, 4-1 Pocket Athletic Conference). Pike Central head coach Dave Stephens said the Chargers' success against the Raiders will depend heavily on two factors. "They are going to leave seven in the box and dare us to throw it," he said. "We have to find a way to run with seven in the box. We have to be able to beat some man-to-man stuff." The next thing is Pike Central can't get caught chasing rabbits. "We can not watch the running back," Stephens said. "We have to lock into our read keys. If you read those keys, then it's a fair- ly simple offense to contain. The problem is all it takes is for you to have your eyes in the backfield one time and it goes for a 60 -yard touch- down. That's the dangerous part of what they do. They test your discipline over and over again." The Raiders were among the others receiving votes in Class 3A in the latest Indi- ana Football Coaches Asso- ciation Poll. Southridge fullback Cole Calvert has rushed for 706 yards and eight touchdowns this season on 112 attempts. He is averaging 6.3 yards per rush. He also caught four receptions for 103 yards a score. Calvert is also the team's leading tackler. Brad Springer has also had a solid season running the ball for the Raiders. He's rushed for 359 yards and seven touchdowns on 50 car- ries, averaging 7.2 yards per attempt. Springer has add- ed another 171 yards on five receptions with three touch- downs. Chase Taylor and Carson Niehaus have both spent time under center his sea- son. Taylor has went 19 -of- 32 for 470 yards with seven touchdowns and four inter- ceptions, while Niehaus is 12-of-26 for 324 yards with four scores and no picks. Garrett Voegerl and Cam- den Gasser are Southridge's top receivers with 13 recep- tions for 294 yards with three touchdowns, and sev- en receptions for 244 yards and four touchdowns, re- spectively. "They are going to be big- ger than us," Stephens said. "Everybody is bigger than us, but I don't think it will be as overwhelming as what we have seen from some oth- er schools." "Those kids have been in the weight room for really long time, they made foot- ball important in their com- munity and they invested in the facilities," Stephens said. "That's the result you get when you have a commu- nity and administration that buys in and invests in all level of the football program and you have good coaching staff: long-term sustainable success." Allen went 3-of-3 for 32 yards and a touchdown on Gibson Southern's next drive, which was capped by a 10 -yard strike to Adam May. Allen finished the game 11-of-14 for 182 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions. Stephens said he has a unique perspective when it comes to guaging Allen's abilities. "I travel all over with my 11-year-old son to differ- ent quarterback camps," he said. "I get to see some of the best and most elite passers in the nation. Brady's size, plus release, velocity and touch is as good as any kid who is out there. He is a le- gitimate high-level Division 1 prospect. "All these guys are going to talk about having the op- portunity to compete against Brady Allen when they are older. They'll see the dude on T V at Michigan, Notre Dame or wherever the heck he chooses to go to school at. Our kids will have a nice time reflecting on when they got to compete against that guy." A fter another Pike Cen- tral punt, Spindler broke through the Chargers' de- fense for a 56 -yard run and his second touchdown with 0 :05 left in the first quarter to make the score 41-0. Butler added touchdown runs of seven and 31 yards, and Spindler rushed for his third touchdown of the game in the second quarter to in- crease the Titans' lead to 61- 0 at halftime. Spindler and Butler each finished the game with more than 100 yards. Spin- dler rushed seven times for 152 yards and Butler rushed twice for 104 yards. Butler al- so had two receptions for 26 yards and a score. DeLong finished as Gibson South- ern's leading receiver with four catches for 103 yards and a touchdown. Both teams displayed a lot of sportsmanship and re- spect towards each other de- spite the lopsided score. "They did it the right way from the ground up," Ste- phens said. "That's how we're attempting to struc- ture our rebuild. We are starting with our youth and working our way up. We are hoping to have long-term sustainable growth. Now they are a machine that just reloads year after year." The Titans' reserves scored on both of their sec- ond-half possessions when Owen Bryant and Ben Lut- trell had touchdown runs of 16 and 31 yards, respectively. Pike Central was able to move the ball some in the second half, but couldn't find its way into the end zone. "We played and tried hard, but just couldn't ex- ecute. Gibson kept us from executing," Stephens said. "They are a great program. They have big kids, but they're not just big kids, they can move and they are well-coached and under- stand the game. (They) do a great job with their pro- gram at all levels." The teams met in prayer at midfield after the game. Pike Central travels to Southridge (6 -1, 4-1 PAC) this week. The Raiders are coming off a tough 42-7 loss to Heritage Hills (7-0, 5 -0 PAC). STEAMROLL Continued from page 1 Pike Central punts during the team's 74-0 loss to Gibson Southern at Weathers Field.
