The 2019 North-South Football Classic game is in the books.
South Charleston High School was the site of the event once again this year. The game promised to be a barn burner with the great football talent that was on the field including Caleb Wynn from our very own Clay County.
The first half was a defensive see-saw with neither team gaining the upper hand or even getting close to the money line. The North Bears had the only real air assault in the game but couldn’t connect most of the time. Both defenses stood like walls. Caleb played for the South Cardinals team on special teams as well as the wide receiver. The South Cardinals stuck mainly to a ground game, but they didn’t push the ball too much. The punter was working overtime. Caleb Wynn has the speed of a road runner and hands like glue and looked like he would get an opportunity to show his talents as the ground game wasn’t working out too well. It was like having a brand new lawn mower in the garage and using nail clippers to cut the grass.
Wynn was open most of the time and had a clear shot at the end zone most of the time as the North team was busy stopping the run. He ran with his hands open, but the pig just didn’t fly his way. Had Wynn been given a chance, this game could have had a different outcome. However, Wynn did a great job with the tasks he was given and laid out a hundred percent effort representing Clay County well.
Congratulations to Caleb Wynn for being chosen for the game and his accomplishments as a Panther. No doubt, if utilized, Caleb Wynn will indeed make a difference as a Pioneer at Glenville this fall and will play an integral part in their program.
