ACCS to honor seniors, host Central Hinds

NATCHEZ — “Tick-tock” is the sound looming in the thoughts of the Adams County Christian School seniors with only two games left in the regular season.

Rebels (7-1, 2-0) head coach David King says the term repeatedly in practice to keep his players motivated.

“I always say, ‘Tick-tock, tick-tock,’ to let them know the clock is ticking down in their careers,” King said. “I know the seniors get tired of hearing it, but now they realize what I was talking about. The season goes by quick.”

And in a short amount of time, King said his players have come a long way.

“I think we have made some tremendous strides from two-a-days,” King said. “My goal as a coach is to be a lot better football team in week 10 than when you started, and I think that’s certainly the case with this team.”

The Rebels are riding a five-game winning streak, and they’re looking to make it six when they face Central Hinds Academy Friday in Week 9 of the season. The team will honor its seniors for senior night Friday, and King said it should be an interesting game against two very different types of teams.

“They’re a lot bigger, but our skills are faster,” he said. “It’ll be contrasting styles going after it, but it’ll make for a good game. It’ll be a big test and one we’re looking forward to.”

Another advantage the Rebels are looking to utilize is their ability to have multiple offensive threats. Their game against Amite School center last week saw seven different Rebels touch the end zone in a 46-0 shutout.

As ACCS prepares for a tough matchup, King admits that his mind is also on the final regular season game against Brookhaven Academy next week.

“We’ve got to win the Brookhaven game and they have to realize it could possibly be the last four quarters the seniors play, so I expect them to come out and play really well,” King said.

The Rebels kick off at 7 p.m. Friday.
