The stickers for big plays on the back of the helmets for Apalachee High School football players display a simple word: “Pride.”
That word perhaps best describes what the Wildcats played with last Friday in their key Region 8-AAAA showdown against visiting Clarke Central. A sound performance on defense, by the offensive line and overall by coach Shane Davis’ team led to a 21-7 win and leaves AHS as the lone undefeated region member.
“We showed a lot of posie,” Davis said. “Our defense played extremely well. At times, they would move the football a little, but it was nothing consistent.”
