GREENSBURG — It was almost as if Eastern Hancock head coach Jim O’Hara had to be reminded Friday’s night 37-6 victory at South Decatur was his first win as the Royals’ leading man.
But it wasn’t because the win didn’t matter to him, he said, it’s because he already feels ingrained in the Eastern Hancock program.
“Here’s the thing,” O’Hara said. “When you start conditioning in April and then May and June, July, August, and then you lose a game; it’s seems like we’ve been at this thing for a long time, which we have. So I’m more excited for the kids than myself. It’s not about me. It’s about them and how well they played in earning the victory.”
And they did earn it, especially senior running back Cooper Henderson, who was given a heavier workload Friday night after being limited with back spasms during last week’s 34-6 loss against Northeastern.
