i S - THUtSI)AY, Au(;. 28, 2003 PAGE 3-B ! : ; ............ 00way Opens With Rare Thursday Night Game moon is officially allaway Cavaliers and kl coach Claude Giddens. After stellar performance in 7-0 scrimmage win at the Cavaliers will try that their backdoor play- year was no fluke. season starts tonight in a rare Thursday night at Callaway stadium against "I&apos;m a lot more comfortable now was this time last year," said "I think our leaders know I expect out of them and any that steps on the field has got to be ready to play up to his potential." A lack of depth at the skill posi- tions still worries Giddens, now in his second year as the Callaway head coach. Callaway lost several starters from last year's 5-6 team that made the playoffs when Macon County was forced to forfeit games. in which they played an ineligible player. The Cav's good luck was neu- tralized by several 'could have been' games that were lost due to funda- mental mistakes, penalties, and just plain bad luck. At times, Callaway was their own worst enemy. "That's all part of being an imma- ture team," said Giddens. "Good teams win those close games and don't put themselves in the position we found ourselves in too many times last year. It comes with con- fidence and leadership on the field." Callaway has turned to last year's part time starter Jason Bray as the quarterback. Bray saw mod- erate success in 2002 when he stepped into the role after the star- ing quarterback was lost to disci- plinary action and an injury. Bray has accepted the challenge and feels he can lead not only with his phys- ical skills but also with an attitude that other players will want to immo- late. "Getting to play a lot last year helped me to focus and hard work to do the things it takes to win. The coaches have confidence in me and I don't want to let them or the team down," said Bray. Giddens agreed. "Justin has some* talent," said Giddens. "It's now a matter of stay- ing within himself and running the offense the way it was designed to be run." Callaway will stay with the wing- T offensive. "This offense is simple enough not to have over-teach, but is ver- satile enough to run multiple plays off of each formation. It is designed to make the defense think and try to guess what you will do. That's why execution is crucial to putting points on the board," said Giddens. Callaway will rely heavily on fullback Chris Tigner and wingback Carl Epps to aid Bray in putting the ball in the end zone, something that was lacking in the final tune up with Heard County last Friday. The Cars had the ball inside the Braves' 20 yard line seven times without scor- ing. "I thought our backs played bet- ter as the game progressed," said Giddens. "Our defense bent a little, but didn't allow points. That's a real plus." Giddens hopes that his team will not get discouraged over the scrim- mage mistakes. "We faced some adversity against Heard County," said Giddens. "In reality, that probably did us some good. Our guys stepped it up a notch and respond well." Directing the Troops...
