Little heading into week 5 of the high school football season did anyone think South Hagerstown would start the season with a 4-0 record. After all, it’s only been since 1990 when the Rebels started off similarly.
Following Friday’s 21-14 victory over Thomas Johnson, the Rebels are now 4-0. It looks to me like South could very well be 9-0 when it locks horns with rival North Hagerstown to end the regular season.
I mentioned regular season — in Class 3A the win over Thomas Johnson is going to have a favorable impact for the Rebels in first level points and they’ll likely get hlp from TJdown the road with points from TJ wins.
Isiaha Smith has been a rushing workhorse and Brandon Jackson appears like he’s becoming more comfortable at quarterback. There are others such as Michael Hill and Jakerian Jones helping shape the offense.
But the defense has been superb, coming up with five interceptions against TJ.
Hopefully the players continue to work hard this week and in each of the upcoming weeks. Maybe School Stadium can begin to rock again.
