CAK sends Young out happy

Christian Academy of Knoxville’s Warriors weren’t about to let the Wartburg Central Bulldogs spoil the party for CAK retiring head coach Bill Young. They sent the Bulldogs to the pound, winning 26-7.

After 37 years of coaching, the last five at CAK, this was Young’s last regular season home game (see photo, page 13A). He and the Warriors have a shot at the playoffs at 5-3 overall, 2-2 in Region 2-2A. At halftime, Young was honored in a ceremony surrounded by former players and coaches, including former University of Tennessee teammates with whom he played, as a free safety, from 1966 to 1969.

They included included Mike Price, Dewey Warren, Charlie Rosenfelder, Elliott Gammage and Bobby Scott.

“It was really a special time,” Young said. “That’s the thing about athletics. You hear a lot of talk about playing as a team. The relationships you build are really the important thing.”

CAK held Wartburg (0-8) to two first downs and for minus 5-yards rushing. Chris Cates, CAK quarterback, completed 12 of 21 passes for 203 yards and one touchdown pass, a 72-yarder to Mitchell Moran. Cates also scored on a two-yard run.

Keenan Kolinsky had a 12-yard TD run, while kicker Matt Warren nailed a 22-yard field goal and all four of his extra point attempts.

“We come out here, practice hard and we play hard,” standout senior runningback Derron Logan said.

Young added, “the defense did real well. We made some big plays on offense and that really opened things up for us.”
