Hornet playmakers present rigorous test for T-Bird defense

Hornet playmakers present rigorous test for T-Bird defense

September 13th, 2013 in News

Fulton head coach Pat Kelley will point at his team's underwhelming statistics and win-loss record from the last three years as obvious signs of "growing pains."

Freshmen, sophomores and the otherwise inexperienced saw playing time and endured their share of bumpy patches.

The results: a three-year mark of 5-26 for the Hornets.

"We knew that when these kids were sophomores that they'd take their lumps, but that they'd steadily improve," Kelley said Wednesday. "... These kids have worked really, really hard... we're just looking ahead and we're 2-0, and looking forward to playing a good opponent (tonight)."

It'll be a known adversary for Fulton in the North Callaway Thunderbirds as the two will kick off at 7 at Robert E. Fisher Jr. Stadium.
