What did the Corbin Redhounds do with coach Tom Greer for a callback to last week’s 27-7 victory over Franklin County?

More of the same, going to Pulaski County and running for 227 yards and five touchdowns as the defense knocked out quarterback Brysen Dugger three times in the 49-6 win over the Maroons.

“The great thing we talked about after the Franklin County win was not to have a disappointment,” said Greer. “We made sure we were mentally prepared and focused on Pulaski County.”

Redhounds running back Seth Mills carried the ball 10 times for 118 yards and two touchdowns on the night, including a 71-yard play late in the first quarter to give Corbin a 14-0 lead.

For the first time this season, Mills was joined in the backfield by transfer Seth Huff, who was cleared to play by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association after being transferred to Corbin over the summer.

Huff has shown he’s yet another weapon in Corbin’s already loaded offense, running 11 times for 74 yards and two touchdowns, one of which involved hurdles. on a defender.

“We’re as good as our offensive and defensive lines,” said Greer. “Our offensive line dominated the line of scrimmage and opened some really good holes. “

Greer said the success of the running game was also the product of Pulaski County’s defense consistently playing six people in pass cover in an attempt to try and stop Corbin’s wide receiver body.

Despite the coverage, Cameron Combs completed nine passes for 155 yards, including one touchdown on a 57-yard screen pass to Dakota Patterson.

Defensively, Brandon Baker had two of the interceptions, while Evan Poore caught a pass and returned it for a touchdown. Treyveon Longmire scored for the fourth.

Mikey Neal continues to lead the Redhound’s defense, recording 12 total tackles. Brayden Reynolds made eight tackles, including one of the quarterback’s three sacks that night.

Corbin will be back in action at Campbell Field on Friday night against Class 2A Somerset.

The Briar Jumpers are 1-3 this season, but Greer noted they were two years away from a state championship and two of the losses came at the hands of Beechwood and Paintsville.

“Somerset has a rich footballing tradition and Coach Lucas will have them ready to play,” said Greer. “We have to make sure that we are also ready to play. “

Greer said that even with four games on the books, the Redhounds entered Friday’s game healthy.

“Everyone is good to go,” said Greer. “We’re in good shape with good depth. If anyone is injured we need to make sure the save is ready to play.
