Adams County Christian School hopes to stay undefeated against Clinton Christian

By Patrick Murphy

NATCHEZ — Two unbeatens meet on Friday night when Adams County Christian School hosts Clinton Christian Academy.

The contest will be the first time the Rebels will face the Warriors in program history. Head Coach David King jokingly said he wishes he could sneak 12 players on the field to stop the Warriors running game.

“I have been playing the play button all week, thinking it was in double speed but I realized they’re really that fast,” King said. “They’re the fastest team I have seen in a while. I thought my TV was going at double speed. ”

This week at practices, King said he and the other coaches, will “work the dog out of these kids” and see who will be able to play against the Warriors on Friday.

“Our practices are going to be a lot tougher than any game they’re going to see,” King said. “Our boys are going to be ready.”

At practices this week, running back Cleven Dunbar wants to change his running ability. In the game last week against Columbia Academy, Dunbar was second on the team with 53 yards on 12 carries and scored a touchdown.

“I feel like I still did good,” Dunbar said. “I feel like I can get more yards.”

ACCS comes into this week’s game not allowing a point from opponents this season. The Rebels also only allowed six first downs and 107 total yards on offense in the 17-0 victory over Columbia Academy. Rhett McDonald said it is the seniors’ presence on defense that made the difference.

“We got eight returning seniors that played defense last year,” McDonald said. “We’re still playing defense.”

Kickoff is slated to start at 7 p.m. between ACCS (2-0) and Clinton Christian Academy (2-0).
