HARRODSBURG - Duane Hammons said Monroe County has a familiar look on defense, one he's designed himself for the Mercer County Scotties.
"They're very similar to us," Hammons said. "It's like looking in a mirror."
The Falcons employ the same 4-4 look Mercer does, and Hammons said he and Monroe coach John Myers have the same outlook. Hammons hopes that familiarity will pay off for the Scotties in their opener Friday at Tompkinsville.
"Everyone talks about (running back Andrew) McCloud doing everything, but I think we've got enough weapons that if they concentrate on one person, we can use some others to do some damage," Hammons said.
Hammons was pleased with what he saw from his team in its final scrimmage last week against Washington County. The Commanders tested Mercer with a run-and-shoot offense, but Brandon Scheller had an interception and McCloud knocked down several passes.
