Dickson County looking to finish season with a victory

By

Dickson County’s football season will come to a close tonight, as the Cougars will travel to Clarksville to face West Creek.

“We’re not going to overlook them because they’re very athletic,” said Dickson County coach Randy Murphree.

“They have an athletic quarterback. They throw the ball some, and have two gifted receivers. That’s going to be a matchup for us that we’ll have to figure out. ”

The Coyotes have had a tough time this season, as they have yet to win a game and are 0-6 in Region 7-5A (0-9 overall).

Dickson County, however, is not overlooking its winless adversary. Murphree would like his team to close out with a victory and give the Cougars some confidence going into next year.

“A win is always good,” said Murphree.

”This is not where we thought we would be. But, in the end, it’s about building your program. Any win is going to help that, no matter who it’s against. Anything you can get towards later in the year is good because it’s something you can carry over into the offseason. It’s something you can work on, and building confidence in the program.”

Jacob Murphree only needs 62 yards to eclipse the 3,000 mark. He’s still the current leader in passing yards in the state of Tennessee, according to Maxpreps, and could finish the season on top with another solid outing tonight.
