CAK rips Scott through air en route to easy victory

It didn’t take long for Christian Academy of Knoxville to take control of its football game against Scott County.

The Warriors (6-1, 3-0) scored just 1:13 into the game and put points on the board with most possessions. They only allowed one score, winning the District 4-AA game 49-7 Friday at CAK

“I felt like we came out, on both sides of the ball, we were pretty focused,” CAK head coach Rusty Bradley said.

Charlie High, CAK’s quarterback, threw for 345 yards and four touchdowns in the first half alone. For the season, he’s completed 175 of 237 passes for 2,640 yards and 33 touchdowns, but High, a junior, said his receivers make him look good.

“It’s the receivers, yards after catch, that helps. And the plays that Coach Bradley ran worked really well on their defense. It was an all-around effort.”

High connected with junior Josh Smith for three touchdowns against Scott County (2-4, 0-3). Smith ended the night with 196 yards, giving him 1,109 yards and 14 touchdowns for the season.

“I’m very excited, but at the same time I just concentrate on playing,” Smith said.

Bradley called Smith a great athlete, adding, “He makes a lot of plays for us. [He’s] really dangerous after the catch. ... We’ve got a lot of weapons.

“Teams are really looking to try to take Davis [Howell] away and take Franklin [Murchison] away, and that’s opened up Josh a lot.”

The Warriors’ defense scored the last points of the game when Jordan Ritchie returned an interception 27 yards to paydirt.

“The quarterback never really had time to throw it because our defensive line was doing such a great job, so when he finally threw it I was in the right position because that’s where our coaches told us to be,” he said.

It was the senior’s second score of the night. At wide receiver, Ritchie caught a touchdown pass in the first quarter.

Colby Maddux and Doug Redford sat out because of injuries but are expected to return for the game at Kingston in two weeks. Chip Rhodes is out for the season due to a torn ACL.
