2-0 Cougars will face toughest test so far

FORTVILLE — Is Greenfield-Central for real? That seems to be the prevalent question among local football observers.

With a 2-0 start to 2014, the Cougars have already matched their win total from a year ago. With 15 rushing touchdowns (including a program-record nine last Friday), they’ve surpassed their entire rushing TD mark of 14 from last fall. And, with 110 points in the two wins, G-C is most of the way to their 2013 point total of 159, a figure they needed 11 games to reach.

Class 4A Mt. Vernon – the 4A Cougars’ foe Friday – is a step up in competition from 2A Indianapolis Shortridge and struggling 4A Indianapolis Northwest, G-C’s first two opponents. But MV head coach Doug Armstrong has a healthy respect for the Cougars.

“They seem to have a pretty solid team,” he said. “Their entire backfield is back from last year. (Andy) Kim and (Cameron) Nuckols both are very hard runners.

“They score a lot of points, so defensively we’re going to have to be really solid.”
