Defense Leads Bears to Victory

    No matter how ugly, "a win is a win," was the sentiment after Bradley Central held off Hixson during Friday evening's homecoming contest at Bear Stadium.

"It was a sloppy game on our part, but we found a way to win it," declared Bradley head coach Damon Floyd after his Bradley squad survived a trio of final-period scares for a 21-14 victory.

"When you turn the ball over five times, you're not supposed to win," the veteran mentor added. "Our offense put our defense in some tough situation, but the defense bowed its back all night and were able to come up with some big plays."

Both Hixson scores came on plays immediately following Bear turnovers to open quarters.

Bradley lost its third fumble of the night on the opening play of the second period, and Wildcat quarterback Preston Wilkey faked a hand off up the middle and swept around left end for a 72-yard touchdown dash.

The second came after the Bears coughed up the ball on the opening kickoff of the third frame. Wilkey hit Jordan Johnson on a slate pass for a 39-yard scoring strike on the following play.

Although Bradley was able to answer on the possessions immediately following the Wildcat scores, plus added a third scoring drive midway through the third quarter, the boys from the north side of Chattanooga had the ball inside the Bear 11-yard line three times in the game's final frame before the host defense turned them away each time to seal the victory.

The two teams combined to put the pigskin on the ground a dozen times (seven by Bradley and five for Hixson), but possession only changed hands four of those times, each time the Wildcats came away with the ball, plus picked up an ill-advised Bear pass.

"We've got to do a better job of taking care of the ball," bemoaned Coach Floyd. "There were a lot of negatives, but we also had some positives. In the end we got the win."

Now 2-1 on the season, Bradley will open the District 5-AAA portion of its schedule Friday night with a trip to the north end of the county to face Walker Valley (2-2) at the Corral.

After seeing their first three offensive possession end with fumbles, the Bears were able to answer Hixson's (2-2) first touchdown with a 14-play scoring march that covered 76 yards.

Senior running back Christian Hamilton carried the rock over the goal line from eight yards out with 5:39 to go in the opening half to set up Logan Snyder's game-tying extra point.

While taking a break from the "ugliness" of the game, beauty was on display during halftime as the homecoming court was introduced and senior Megan Beavers was crowned queen.

When play resumed, so did the Bear miscues, with the fumbled kickoff return setting up the second Wildcat touchdown.

Sophomore Swan Parker returned Hixson's second kickoff return a 15-second span 30 yards to the Bear 43. Seven plays later, including a 24-yard run by Bear sophomore QB Cole Copeland, plus a 27-yard completion to classmate Trevon Hill, Copeland found the end zone from three yards out. The snap on the extra-point attempt was high and by the time it was brought down, Hixson got a hand on the kick to hold onto a 14-13 lead.

After the Bear defense forced the visitors to go three-and-out on the ensuing series, Bradley put together another sustained drive, marching 58 yards on 11 plays, with Hill throwing a key block to spring Copeland on a 12-yard scamper to paydirt for what turned out to be the deciding score.

With the previous extra point attempt failing, Coach Floyd decided to go for the two-point conversion. After having to scramble around for several seconds, Copeland found Hill had worked his way into the clear at the back of the end zone for the game's final points with 4:16 to go third frame.

Hixson tried to even the score after Bradley's next possession, picking off a pass and returning it 30 yards to the Bear 38. Two plays later, the Wildcats were just eight yards from the end zone, but once again the Bear defense held the visitors to just five yards on the next four snaps.

Bradley's defense had to return to the field four plays later after a shanked punt out of its own end zone gave Hixson the ball at the Bear 18. Making another Red Zone stand, junior Jamey Billups sacked the 'Cat QB for a 12-yard loss on the fourth-and-3 play to thwart the threat.

The visitor's final offensive effort started on their own 34, but 13 plays later they were knocking on the door at the Bear 9. Billups came up big again when he droped a Wildcat receiver at the line of scrimmage, before back-to-back incomplete passes caused the rally to come up short.

After having rushed for 376 yards against state-ranked South Pittsburg in a victory two weeks ago, the Hixson rushing attack was held to just 68 yards outside of Wilkey's 72-yard scoring dash. Wilkey himself had a negative six yards on his other 10 carries in the contest.

As he had in the previous two Bear games, Copeland topped the Bradley offense, rushing 22 times for 102 yards and a pair of scores, plus completed 15-of-19 passes to five different receivers for 111 more yards and the other touchdown.

Hill pulled in four catches for 47 yards, while senior Daniel Clark also snagged a trio of aerials for 25 yards and junior Tyler Carpenter had four for 20 yards.

Hamilton was near 100 all-purpose yards for the second time this season with 94 on 21 carries, plus two more yards on a couple of receptions

Bears Fall To Riverdale


Swan Parker gets extra yardage after the catch

by JOE CANNON Banner Assistant Sports Editor
MURFREESBORO — The good news is Bradley Central's offense got into the Red Zone five times Friday night, including four in the first half.

The bad news is the Bears crossed the goal line just once.

Meanwhile, the host Riverdale squad found paydirt on six of its last eight possessions for a 42-7 payback of last year's loss at Bear Stadium.

"When you get that close that many times and don't score and then they (the opponent) is able to put a couple of touchdowns on the (score)board, it's easy to get disheartened, but our kids kept fighting," commented Bradley head coach Damon Floyd. "We went toe-to-toe for three quarters with what we feel like is one of the top teams in the state, so we feel good about that."

Now 1-1 on the season, the Bears will get an extra week to make some needed adjustments before playing host to Hixson (1-1) on Sept. 12.

"The off week is coming at a good time," Floyd remarked. "We've still got some good competition going on between some guys for playing time and starting positions. We'll be able to take a look and tweak some things, plus we'll be able to get in a little more conditioning."

Bradley got off to a strong start with a double-move sideline pass from sophomore QB Cole Copeland to junior wide out Tyler Carpenter that covered 71 yards and put the ball on the Riverdale 9 yard line. Unfortunately in a sign of troubles to come, the Bears had to settle for a 25-yard field goal try four plays later, but the snap skipped and Carpenter, who is the holder for extra points and field goals, had to scoop up the ball and tied to run it in but was stopped a yard short of the goal line.

After the Warriors moved the ball just four yards on their first two plays, tailback Artavious Collier appeared to be down short of a first down on play No. 3, but he wasn't ruled down and was able to bounce back up and break lose of on a 41-yard run before Bear senior Daniel Clark ran him down from behind to save a touchdown.

Two plays later, Riverdale coughed the ball up, and Bradley senior defensive lineman Logahn McAmis pounced on the pigskin near midfield.

After Carpenter made a spectacular one-handed catch for a 10-yard gain on the first play after the takeaway, senior running back Christian Hamilton broke off a 12-yard run before Copeland moved the ball to the Warrior 12 with 13 yards on back-to-back carries. However, once again the Black-and-Gold was turned away with four straight incomplete passes, two of which were knocked away in the end zone.

The Bear defense once again rose to the occasion, allowing the hosts just one first down before forcing a punt. Riverdale kicker Kyle Bennett, who had just two of his seven kickoffs in the contest to not reach the end zone, boomed a 65-yard punt.

Starting on their own 11, Bradley put together an 11-play march that included a 22-yard run by Copeland, a 22-yard pass completion to Hamilton and a 12-yarder to Swan Parker. Copeland finished off the lone Bear scoring drive with a 15-yard dash to the pylon with 41 ticks left on the opening quarter clock. Senior Logan Snyder tacked on the extra point for a 7-0 Bear advantage.

After the teams exchanged punts, with Bradley's only traveling 11 yards, Riverdale was able to get its offense going, scoring twice in the second frame for a 14-7 halftime advantage. With both scoring drive starting near midfield, the Warriors needed seven plays to go 48 yards on its first trip to paydirt and just five to cover 53 yards on the second just a little over three minutes later.

Bradley had one more chance to put points on the board in the opening half when Parker returned the kickoff after the second Riverdale score 47 yards to the Warrior 43. The Bears were able to move the ball into the Red Zone at the 14, but were stacked up on a fourth-and-inches play.

After the intermission, the Warrior offense, aided by some laundry on the field, was able to score in four of its five second half possessions.

"We had four personal fouls called on us in a half. We haven't had four (unsportsmanlike penalties) called on us in a year. I got one just for asking what one of the flags was for," remarked Floyd, whose team had just one flag (for holding) thrown on them in the opening half.

The first unsportsmanlike penalty came on a fourth down play when the Bears had stopped the Warriors short at the Bradley 20, but the flag gave the hosts a first down at the 13. They scored four plays later.

Another prevented a Bear first down and instead gave them a third-and-15. They had to punt on the next play, giving Riverdale the ball near midfield, from where they scored four plays later.

The back-to-back flags to begin the next Warrior possession put them at the Bear 40, once again needing just four plays to find the end zone.

"I'm not trying to make excuses or say that's what beat us — we didn't score when we had the opportunities, and we didn't keep them out of the end zone — but it sure made it tough," Floyd stated.

Bradley's lone trip to the Red Zone in the second half came in its next-to-last possession on a 14-play, 73-yard march to the Warrior 7, before back-to-back incompletions stalled the scoring threat.

The Bears finished with 328 yards of offense with Copeland completing 16-of-32 passes for 221 yards, plus rushing the ball 18 times for 63 more.

For the second week in a row, Carpenter went over the century mark in reception yardage with 115 yards on five catches. Hamilton finished with 61 total yards 39 on five receptions and 22 on 10 carries.

Riverdale senior transfer QB Cortland Owens connected on 13-of-19 aerials for 197 yards, with Collier totaling 127 yards on 15 carries and a reception. Junior running back Austin Bryant helped out with 77 yards on 11 rushes and a pair of catches, while junior wide out Marquis Cantrell pulled in seven passes for 104 yards.

Including a 21-0 win over Siegel in the opening week, the Warriors are now 2-0 on the season and face nationally-ranked Blackman Friday.

Bears Face RIverdale


The Bears defense swarms a Polk Co. running back

by JOE CANNON Banner Assistant Sports Editor

While both Bradley Central and Riverdale are coming off impressive season-opening victories, the head coaches feel their teams still have plenty to work on as they prepare to meet Friday evening in Murfreesboro.

"We had a strong opening half, but then an ugly second half," commented Bear coach Damon Floyd of last week's 21-6 win over Polk County. "We've got to cut down our penalties (seven for 60 yards), plus come out and play the whole four quarters."

"We kept killing ourselves offensively," stated Riverdale coach Ron Aydelott in noting his team got flagged 11 times for 92 yards in a 21-0 victory over District 7-AAA rival Siegel. "We couldn't take any pressure off the defense."

After leading by just a 7-0 margin at the half, the four-time state champion Warriors got their offense going in the final two frames to finish with 412 yards, while holding the Stars to just 153.

"They have switched offenses this season (going from a Wing-T to a read-option spread) and have a dual-threat quarterback that's moved in," related Coach Floyd. "They have some good runners and receivers, plus a big, physical line."

Senior QB Cortland Owens, who transfered in from Cane Ridge, completed 13-of-23 passes for 184 yards, but none were for scores, plus he was intercepted once and sacked once. He also ran the ball 13 times for 38 yards and a score, but was also caught behind the line of scrimmage for minus 20 yards.

Owens spread the ball around to eight different receivers with senior Ben Wells gaining 61 yards on a pair of receptions, while junior Marquise Cantrell covered 56 yards on a trio of catches.

Junior Artavious Collier carried the ball 24 times for 114 yards and the other two Warrior touchdowns, while Austin Bryant added another 61 yards on a dozen rushes.

Leading the charge against the Warriors will be junior linebackers Colby Alford and Jamey Billups, who led the Bear defense by being in on 15 and 11 tackles respectively in last Friday's victory.

"Other than the quarterback, these are the same guys we played last year," related Floyd of the 39-35 Bear victory when the teams met for the first time ever last season. "We actually didn't stop them last year, we just outscored them.

"They are a big, strong, physical, well-coached team and we've got to find a way to stop them," he added. "They will have revenge on their mind. After we beat them last year, they went on a run and finished third in their district behind Blackman and Oakland."

Bradley will counter the Warrior offensive threat with some strong weapons of its own, coming off a 369-yard output against Polk.

Sophomore signal caller Cole Copeland connected on 13-of-18 passes for 221 yards, including an 89-yard TD strike to junior Tyler Carpenter. Copeland also carried the rock 13 times for a team-leading 68 yards and a score.

"Cole did a good job for his first (varsity) start. He was able to take what the defense gave him and do good with it," praised Floyd. "We spread the ball around well (four ball carriers and six different receivers), and had a good balance (26 rushes, 18 passes) to our offense."

Carpenter finished with a trio of catches for 103 yards, while senior tailback Christian Hamilton gained 99 yards, 67 of them coming on eight carries, plus he pulled in a pair of passes for 32 more.

The Bears will face a tough Warrior defense. "Their front seven are very big, physical guys and their secondary can run," assessed Floyd.

"We are going to have to keep the chains moving (getting first downs)," commented Bear offensive coordinator Keith Freeman. "We can't afford three-and-outs."

"They (Riverdale) don't have a lot of weaknesses to attack," Floyd added. "When you hold Siegel scoreless, that's something." It was just the third time the Stars, who averaged 39.2 and 42.1 points per game the last two seasons, have been shut out in nine years.

Friday night's game will be Riverdale's home opener with an 8 p.m. kickoff time.

Bears Tame Wildcats


Tyler Carpenter grabs a touchdown pass during the Bears 21-6 victory over the Wildcats

by JOE CANNON Banner Assistant Sports Editor

A quick start, the return of a Mr. Tennessee Football finalist and getting to honor a local legend provided a strong start to the TSSAA football season for Bradley Central Friday evening, but there is still room to improve according to the Bear head coach.

"I loved the first half (298 yards of offense and three touchdowns), but the second half was ugly," commented Damon Floyd of the 21-6 victory over Polk County to open his ninth season at the Bear helm.

"I'm glad to get the win. I was happy at times, but we need to come out ready to play all four quarters," he added. "Give Polk credit. Even though we were up 21-0 at the half they fought hard and out played us in the second half."

The Bears will travel to Murfreesboro Friday to take on Riverdale, a 21-0 winner over Siegel in its opener. Meanwhile, the Wildcats will welcome Chattanooga Central to Benton Friday. The Purple Pounders slipped past Franklin County 16-10 in Harrison to begin the campaign.

After Bradley's all-time leading rusher and all-state linebacker Blake Morris served as honorary captain for the coin toss and before longtime local radio broadcaster Corky Whitlock was honored at halftime (see story this page), Bradley found the end zone on its first two offensive possession, plus tacked on another score just before the intermission Friday evening.

The jam-packed Bear Stadium home stands rose in unison on the third play from scrimmage when sophomore quarterback Cole Copeland found senior Christian Hamilton over the middle, but Polk senior Ryan Rowland made a TD saving tackle just past midfield to hold it to a 23-yard gain.

Two plays later, Hamilton broke free again, this time on a run, and outran the Wildcat defense for a 41-yard scoring jaunt with exactly three minutes gone off the game clock. Senior Logan Snyder added the first of his extra-point kicks on the evening for a 7-0 edge.

After junior Reno Wimberley got the Polk fans to their feet with a 32-yard return of the ensuing kickoff, the "Boys from Benton" were able to just get one first down before being forced to punt.

Taking over on their own 12 yard line, the Bears lost a yard on their first play, but then Copeland found junior Tyler Carpenter across the middle and he was able to scoot past a pair of Polk defender and carry the mail to the house on an 89-yard scoring play. Snyder's kick was true again for a 14-0 advantage with four and a half minutes remaining in the opening quarter.

After the next three series ended in punts, the Wildcats took the air out of the Bear Stadium crowd when senior Tristen Senn stepped in front of a Copeland pass and returned the "pick" 40 yards to the Bradley 14.

Bending but no breaking, the Bear defense put the visitors in a fourth-and-1 situation at the 5 yard line and when the snap was muffed, senior defensive lineman Will Robbins pounced on the loose pigskin to quell the threat.

With 5:32 left in the first half, Copeland directed an 11-play, 93-yard scoring drive, carrying the ball over from the 1 himself with 41 ticks on the clock. The sophomore signal caller completed all four of his passes on the march, including a 25-yarder to senior Tanner Cox. Copeland also carried the ball five times himself for 26 yards on the series.

Copeland and the Bears headed into the locker room having completed 8-of-11 passes for 184 yards, plus the team gained 114 yards on 16 rushes (an average of more than seven yards a carry). The Black-and-Gold defense allowed the visitors just 55 yards on 20 offensive plays (2.75 ypc), all on the ground, during the first half.

After the intermission festivities and the band performances, the Big Red Train came back on the field with a full head of steam. Taking the opening kickoff, and being aided by a 15-yard penalty on the hosts, Polk drove to the edge of the Red Zone in eight plays.

After the Bear defense stiffened to force a fourth-and-6 from the 20-yard line, senior Daniel Clark put an end to the threat by picking off a pass just in front of the goal line and returning it to the 12.

Going to the air on four of its first five plays, Bradley crossed midfield when Hamilton broke off an 11-yard run on the sixth play. However, Polk sophomore Seth Sloan got past the blockers and sacked Copeland for an 11-yard loss on the next play to push the ball back over the midfield mark. The Bears then hurt themselves with back-to-back penalties to move the ball back another 20 yards.

After Bradley had to punt the ball away, the Big Red Train pulled out of the station from its own 29 and powered down the line for 13 plays before junior Ben Norwood punched the ball in from the 1 with 6:20 left in the contest.

However, that was as close as the contest would get as the next two series went three-and-out before the Bears ran out the clock on the "Backyard Brawl." It was Bradley's fourth win since the team resumed playing each other six years ago and gives them a 26-8-1 lead in the overall series that dates back to 1917.

In his first varsity start, Copeland finished with 68 yards on 13 carries, plus connected on 13-of-18 passes for 221 yards. The 6-foot-3, 175-pounder spread the ball around to a half dozen receivers.

"Cole did well with a couple of mistakes," assessed Coach Floyd. "He shows a lot of ability, but is still learning the game. The interception was our fault. We checked off at the line and they (Polk) picked it up."

Carpenter collected 103 yards on just a trio of catches, while Hamilton had a near 100-yard night with 67 yards on eight carries, plus he pulled in a pair of passes for 32 more. Clark got his hands on the ball four times for 38 yards.

After gaining nearly 300 yards in the opening half, the Bears finished with 369 yards of total offense. 

For the boys in Red, Rowland toted the rock for 47 yards on 14 carries, plus pulled in the only complete Wildcat pass for 18 more. Norwood gained 39 yards on eight second-half rushes, while Wimberley managed 35 yards on eight tries. Sloan bulled for 23 yards on seven carries.

Bears out Hustle the Tigers 13-0


Christian Hamilton runs for big yardage against the Tigers of Howard High School in Fridays Jamboree

by SARALYN NORKUS Banner Sports Writer
CHATTANOOGA — Both Bradley Central and Cleveland traveled down to Finley Stadium to get one final scrimmage under their belts before this season kicks into high gear.

While the Bears' experience gave them an edge over the Howard Hustlin' Tigers for a 13-0 win, an injury-stricken Blue Raiders team fell to the Baylor Red Raiders 7-3.

"This was a dress rehearsal and we didn't want to get any kids hurt. We accomplished that and now it's time for the real deal on Friday night," Bradley head coach Damon Floyd said.

Unsure if his team's offense will consist mainly of passing or running, Coach Floyd acknowledged that the Bears still had work to do.

"We're going to do whatever it takes to move the football," Coach Floyd stated. "We've got to get better at running the football and we've still got a long way to go before next week."

Senior running back Christian Hamilton showed that he was more than capable of moving the ball down the field and set up senior fullback DJ Moyse to get Bradley on the board with a 4-yard run into the endzone five minutes into the 20 minute scrimmage.

The Bears' next touchdown came nearly eight minutes later, when sophomore quarterback Cole Copeland fired off a 35-yard pass to junior receiver Tyler Carpenter.

"I thought Cole did his job," Floyd declared."As long as he takes what the defense gives him, doesn't try to force anything and lets his playmakers make plays, he will be fine."

Sophomore receiver Trevon Hill made his presence known Friday evening after being able to snatch up a pass while lying on his back.

"We're expecting big things from him down the road," Floyd commented. "I'm not sure how much he'll contribute this year – he still needs a lot of work, but he's getting better and working hard. He made a great catch tonight which is what we're asking him to do."

Bradley Central will host Polk County in a "Backyard Brawl" Friday night at 7:30 p.m.
