Last week in the season opener, Holmes managed to get by Holy Cross in a hot and tiresome game, mostly by limiting the rushing attack and forcing the Indians to go to the air. The interior defensive linemen did a solid job of plugging their gaps and forcing ball-carriers to the outside on their runs. The strategy worked well, frustrating Holy Cross into incompletions and turnovers.
Scott is another team that focuses its offensive playcalling around the run. Head Coach Dan Woolley showcases a stable of high-quality running backs and intends on riding the trio to wins this season.
“We're primarily a running team. We have at least three backs that have the potential to be really, really good,” Woolley said. “We're blessed that we have three and I think they could start for a lot of teams in Northern Kentucky.”
