The Lumpkin County Indians hosted the North Cobb Christian Eagles on Friday for their Spring scrimmage game. The Indians, led by head coach Heath Webb picked up right where they left off last season, defeating the Eagles 49-6.
Lumpkin’s offense started slow as they were unable to score in the first half, but things quickly changed in the 3rd quarter as the Indians scored 35 unanswered points. The offense for Lumpkin is slightly different this year as former quarterback and leader Cooper Scott has graduated leaving a vacancy in the pocket. Even with Scott gone, The Indian offense still looked like their high-scoring dominant selves led by Cal Faulkner/Mason Hester at quarterback, Mason Sullens/Will Wood at running back, Luke Evans and Harper Davenport at wide receiver. Faulkner threw three touchdowns in the third quarter, connecting with Davenport once and Evans twice. Sullens led the offense in rushing yards, while Wood scored on a 30-yard rushing touchdown.
The Indian defense was just as impressive, if not more than their offense. The Indian defense allowed just one touchdown late in the second quarter and nothing more. Aside from the one score, the Eagles were unable to penetrate the Indian defense led by Connor Grelich, AJ Scott, Preston Cox, Dakota Bennet, Trent Mobley, Jackson Bell, Nate Gilleland, and Trenton Brooksher. The Indians were able to force and recover a fumble in the game as well as pick off the quarterback and run it back to the house for a touchdown.
The Indians will go back to work this summer as they get ready for the 2023-2024 season, looking to repeat their impressive run last year and make another run in the playoffs. Indian fans will have to wait to see their team again in August when they open up the season at home against Riverside Military Academy.
