Published 12:00 am Friday, November 5, 1999

The football will likely spend more time in the air than on the ground tonight when Adams County Christian School finishes its season at Hillcrest in a 7 p.m. game.

As a sophomore last year, Hillcrest quarterback Seth Smith passed for 300 yards in a 35-27 Cougar win.

AC sophomore quarterback Ty Smith has passed for 1,828 yards through five games.

&uot;They might come out and surprise us and not throw the ball as much,&uot; said AC head coach Bo Swilley. &uot;Against Prep they lined up in a power I and moved the ball. But I don’t expect them to stay with that all night.&uot;

Tonight’s game will be the final one in an AC&160;uniform for Hayden Wadsworth, Casey McGehee, Tim Baker, Noland Bullen, Jake Ogden, Ryan Porte, David and Mickey Ellis, Jay Britt and Jay Hollowell.

&uot;There were some wins out there we didn’t get and I regret that for them,&uot; Swilley said. &uot;They’ve done their part. This is as grood a group of seniors I’ve ever coached. I’m going to miss this bunch.&uot;

Which is one more reason Swilley would like to see the Rebels win their finale.

&uot;Winning this game can make up for some disappointments we’ve had,&uot; Swilley said. &uot;You remember winning that last game.&uot;

Swilley said the Rebels will basically go with what they’ve been doing the past few weeks.

&uot;We put in a few different routes to try and exploit what they do, but we’re not re-inventing the wheel,&uot; Swilley said. &uot;We’ll still run counters and draws as far as our running game is concerned.&uot;

Swilley said a win would give the Rebels some momentum going into next spring.

&uot;I think the kids are excited about what we are doing on offense and defense,&uot; he said. &uot;We put in new schemes on both sides and they are having fun with it.&uot;
