  • Titans fly past Bearcats, 41-21

    The Collins High School football team honored its seniors’ final home game with a 41-21 defeat of Anderson County on Friday night.

    And one of the Titans’ seniors came up huge in the win.

    Payton Hawk hauled in five balls for 130 yards and three scores to give Collins (6-4) its sixth win of the year.

    “It feels great [to catch three touchdowns on senior night],” Hawk said. “It feels amazing. I think we did a great job of executing that our game plan tonight.”

    In the Shelby County Rockets’ triple-option offense every runner is a threat to break away, aiding in the misdirection caused from fake handoffs.

    With the graduation of Malik Manica, junior Caleb Morehead has seized that role this season, all while leading the team in rushing, despite having missed one game due to injury.

    “They are really big and loaded with athletes all over the field,” Collins quarterback J.R. Lucas said. “They always are. It’ll be a good game, like the times we’ve played them before.”
