Area schools kick off football season

(Continued)

FAIRMONT — North Marion at Frankfort

While East Fairmont is trying to repeat history, North Marion is trying to avoid it.

The Huskies started last season with a 55-27 loss to Frankfort. The defeat started an eight-game skid before the Huskies eventually won their final two games.

Tonight North Marion goes to Frankfort looking for revenge. Game time is 7:30 p.m.

It will be coach Daran Hays first time calling both the offensive and defensive plays. When he does, you can count on a lot of runs. He has said repeatedly this offseason that he wants to establish an identity as a physical, ground-and-pound offense.

Drew Harker will be getting the start under center for the Huskies. When he’s asked to throw, expect a lot of sprint outs and play action.

"We might be 3-yards and a cloud of dust but from an offensive line standpoint, hopefully we'll be better at getting off the ball,” Hays said. “I know we got some guys in the backfield who will give it all they got and keep the ball moving.”
