COMO — On Senior Night at Ron Heflin Field, the Como-Pickton Eagle seniors proved just that — it was their night.
The nine football players took their last walk across that green rye field with another victory under their belt. The Eagles defeated the visiting Alba-Golden Panthers 19-14 Friday.
“I thought the kids played hard. We had some problems with them up front early but felt like we made some adjustments to get us on the board,” said Como-Pickton Eagles head football coach and athletic director Paul Tullis. “Defensively, we had them pretty much dead in the water until a personal foul on us in the third (quarter) and gave up the big play. Once they had a little life and confidence, they were tough to stop.”
