ATLANTA— Beautiful day in Atlanta, makes a even better day of football -D1Spects Style-. Powers collided early in the 6u Decatur Army vs Ben Hill Tigers. The Army used the legs of Jeremiah Francis and took a commanding 12-0 lead but Kaleb McMicheal would find the end-zone and again score off the two point conversion late in the fourth quarter.
The Tigers recovered the onside kick with eight seconds left in the ball game, however the Army would dig deep and stop them to escape with the 12-7 opening day win.
The Atlanta Cowboys ran cowboy wild all over the Georgia Silverbacks on Sunday. From the opening kick off return by Zaccie Zacahary to the big time playmaking of skill players Mekhi Turner and Deshawn Calhoun . If this was how the West was won, Deshawn Calhoun was the Sheriff. Calhoun finished with 200 total yards and a pair of touchdowns. The Cowboys controlled the game from start to finish winning big 21-0 in Cowboy fashion.
After the game, Cowboys’ Coach Shawn told D1Spects,”We’ve come a long way, but we love the direction of the program. After our loss to the [Atlanta] Vikings, our attitudes towards winning changed. Let this be known Decatur [Army] We are coming for you.”
