Notes on the Cedar Creek Cougars

They Move the Chains: Cedar Creek returns six starters on offense. Cougars sophomore running back Donald Jenkins is extremely durable. The (5-11, 200) back can take 20-25 carries a game and keep going. Shilo Perry is the player other teams have to keep an eye on and game plan for. Perry in the open field is a mismatch waiting to happen.

Blitz Patrol: The Cougars return four players on defense. Middle linebacker Blake Ginn is the sledgehammer of the unit. With a motor that does not stop, Ginn flies around the field and will be one of the Cougars leading tacklers. He will also be responsible for making all the checks at the line of scrimmage. Chase Murphy is 145 pounds, but he plays like he's 40-50 pounds heavier. His intelligence makes up for his small frame. Coach Ben Haddox says Murphy makes the team more versatile since he plays multiple positions. When there's an injury—which they hope to avoid—Murphy will step-up and fill the hole. Senior cornerback Jacob Antee is one interception away joining the Cougars top 10 list for most career interceptions.

Cleats to Fill: All-State offensive tackle KJ Malone leaves a big hole up front. The (6'3,300) Malone now calls Baton Rouge home as he will suit up for the Tigers this fall. Malone was a physical run blocker who will be missed.

Unsung Hero: Senior offensive guard Garland Pipes is the first four year starter Cedar Creek has had in a long time. As you would expect, Pipes is Cedar Creek's best offensive lineman and is being counted on to clear the way for Perry and Donald Jenkins. Pipes is an important player in their multiple offense based out of a pistol formation.

Ace Watch: Quarterback Mark Van is one of the best athletes in the district. The senior signal call has great "escapability" and his best play often is made after a broken play.

Postseason Prospects: (9-3) Cedar Creek went 9-3 last season as they lost in the second round last year to Vermillion Catholic. Coach Haddox says the Cougars can return to the playoffs again if they are more consistent on the offensive side of the ball. They lost to some good football teams last year, but Haddox says they can beat anyone if they execute their gameplan. The coaching staff says they will take on the challenge of making sure the Cougars are prepared from the first whistle to the final snap.

Coach Talk: "If you watched us in practice, you probably wouldn't notice Jacob Antee. However, when we get to games Antee is always in the right places and makes plays." — Coach Ben Haddox Cedar Creek.
