PAGE 8-A HOGANSVILLE HOME NEWS - THURSDAY, Nov. 28, 2002 Callaway Ends 00n+0000ith Playoff Loss .... +-q_ It was the second half effort that ly sound that it's scary to think what By JODY HALE The road finally came to the end last Friday night for the Callaway Cavaliers as they lost their first round playoff gameto Americus, 4_5-21. Americus, who has won the AA State Championship the past two years, ran their record to 114) and looked primed to take home anoth- er crown this year. Callaway finished the season a respectable 6-5. More importantly, Callaway head coach Claude Giddens now has a year under his belt and some very talented players to build for the future. Despite the loss, Giddens was pleased with his team's effort, especial- ly a second half performance that left little doubt that Callaway football has a bright future. "I'm just as proud of these guys as Ican be," said Giddens. "It would have been so easy in the second half to just pack it in and call it a year. But our guys fought hard until the bitter end." Callaway trailed at the half 39-14, but actually 'won' the second half 7-6. impressed Americus coach Erik Soliday, a Georgia coaching icon that has seen his share of good football teams come and go. "I'll tell you without question that Callaway is a team to watch in the very near future," said Soliday. 'Their coach- es do a fine job and you could tell by their second half performance that their players have what it takes to be a win- ner, and that's courage and determina- tion. I've seen a lot of teams fold the tent at halftime when they were down by 25 points. Combine that with the up and coming talent they have and you know they can be a solid competitor." The Panthers, winners of 39 of their last 40 games, struck early and often in the first half leaving Callaway a little shell-shocked. By the time the Cavs made the needed adjustments, Americus had all but put the game away. "Fortunately for us, we came out of the gates and moved the football well in the first half," said Soliday. "If we hadn't, it would have been a real battle for us. Callaway is just so fundamental- could have happened if we had not got- ten those early touchdowns." Giddens, alw',the optimist, saw the reality of the situation his team faced. "They haven't won the last two state championships by accident," said Giddens. "We knew what we were up against. We played a team that is at the level where we want to be. And I really believe we'll get there, it's just going to take some time." Callaway will not be deprived of tal- ent due to graduation. Clantwan Martin, a potential college prospect returns next year along with quarterback Justin Bray, who will be a sophomore. Add to that running back Chris Tigner and a more experienced line and the offense seems poised to have a break-through year in 2003. "I'm optimistic about the direction our team is headed," said Giddens. "I'm not about to make any predictions about the future because a lot of things can happen. But we know where we want to go and how we want things done."
