Cottondale sinks Seahawks 52-6

The Franklin County Seahawks continue to search for their
first win, after traveling to Cottondale Friday night and sustaining a 52-6 loss to
the Hornets.

After trailing 30-0 at the half, the Seahawks got on the board
in the third quarter, as sophomore Brayden McCall caught a seven-yard pass from
junior Evan Stanley.

“It was a rough night,” said Coach Dirk Strunk. “We had
opportunities early on in the game that we didn’t capitalize on. The kids kept
fighting until the end.

“We’ve got a lot of work to do.  It is a building
process that is going to take time,” he said.

Stanley completed 8 of 21 passes for 111 yards, and was
intercepted four times. McCall caught four of those passes, for 30 yards, while
junior Wyatt Abercrombie brought down three passes for 55 yards and senior
Larry Winchester one for 26 yards.

Senior Wil Varnes led the team with 31 yards on the ground
on seven carries, the only significant Seahawk rusher on the night. Varnes
also had an interception, for 33 yards, as did sophomore Reece Juno, for 21

Winchester had three kickoff returns for a total of 62
yards, and McCall one for 15 yards. Winchester led the team in tackles, with 10
solos and two assists, with Varnes tallying four tackles and two assists, junior
Mason Moses with four, one for a loss; junior Parker Mock two solos and three
assists; junior Kevin Sullivan with two solos and two assist; and Juno with
three solos.

On Friday night, the Seahawks host 3-3 Bronson, with kickoff
