LIBERTY - Casey County coach Andy Stephens said even though Pulaski County lost quarterback Cole Draughn to graduation, he still expects the Maroons to put the ball in the air often Friday in Somerset.
Pulaski (2-0) defeated Wayne County 28-7 in its season opener before downing crosstown rival Somerset 27-20 last week.
"They beat Somerset last week and didn't play their best," Stephens said. "However, they jumped on Wayne 21-0 in the first quarter, and they must not be a bad team after seeing their score against Mercer County (a 32-13 win)."
Stephens says Pulaski's front line features a pair of 275-pound tackles and protects quarterbacks Brett Faulkner and Ross Deaton well.
"They have good size and are physical, but they are not real quick," the Casey coach said. "However, they have dominated the line of scrimmage in both games. They have a big receiver in Tyler Sexton that they will try to get the ball to at any time. They will run an occasional counter but for the most part they will line up in the shotgun and air it out."
