. Clarksville High two-week run through the ringer continues tonight as the Wildcats take on Dickson County at 7:30 tonight at Hilda J. Richardson Field. And if Wildcats coach Ken Busbee was watching film of last week’s Dickson County win against Northeast, the second-year CHS coach is probably taking Tylenol for a headache.
The fact is, no one has found a way to stop the Cougars’ offense.
Eagles coach Isaac Shelby eluded to the fact that Dickson County isn’t a razzle-dazzle team full of fireworks and high-wire acts. The Cougars are just workman-like, steady, consistent and difficult to penetrate through. It’s the reason why the Cougars are 8-0 and 6-0 in District 10-AAA. The 28-6 victory last week against Northeast all but wrapped up the regular season district title and Dickson finally entered the Class 6A football poll at No. 10 this week.
Clarksville is coming off a 45-3 loss to Henry County in which Busbee’s offense failed to score a touchdown for the second straight week. Northeast beat the Wildcats 20-0 Sept. 21. It’s a streak Busbee would rather eliminate immediately. It’s the only two games his teams have failed to score in during his tenure.
But if Clarksville High is looking to get back in the end zone, it will have to do it against, arguably, the district’s best defense.
