AUGUSTA---The Laney running game is enjoying another prolific season. The backfield for the Wildcats racked up more than 300 yards on the ground in last week's win. Rather than highlight the backs however, we're gonna give some pub to the unsung heroes in the trenches; the Laney offensive line.
The Wildcats offense has arguably the most weapons to choose from in the area and the five guys up front allow those weapons to go off.
It's the unpublicized backbone of a team that has gone to the playoffs seven straight seasons and is poised form another run this year.
The wildcats have always had some of the most exciting athletes on the field in the so-called skill positions but no yards are gained without blocks which is where the big guys up from come in. Guys like Terrell Hankerson, Henderson Ware, Brandon Thurmond, Jaleel Thomkins, Josh Swingler and Theodore McNeal.
"We have a whole lot of seniors and juniors who are dedicated to this team," says McNeal. " We are disciplined and we listen to the coaches and do what we need to do to get the job done."
The biggest test of the year is coming up this Friday for Laney against Jefferson County but, for now, the Laney offensive line are our Players of the Week.
