Campbell County is home for the first time in a month. Friday at Dossett Stadium, the Cougars take on Karns looking for their first region win on the season. Injured quarterback Landon Addington practiced this week for the first time in two weeks. CCHS Head Coach Justin Price says, “This week’s been a little bit better. He’s been able to practice a little bit more. But he’s still limited in how mobile he is. They’ll kinda look at him during Friday’s pre-game and see how far along he is. He’s healing quickly and hopefully will be better than he was last week for sure and get to the point where he will able to use his legs a little bit again.”
Christian Shouse, wideout and defensive back, missed the fourth quarter at Powell last week with what was thought to be a concussion. Shouse will be evaluated in pre-game warm-ups.
Campbell has missed Preston Bowman for almost six weeks. This week is the first week he’s been able to practice though it’s been non-contact. He, too, will be evaluated in warm-ups on Friday to see if he can return to his flanker and secondary duties.
The Cougars are 2 & 4 in all games with losses through their first two region contests. Karns has struggled to win one game, 48-22 over Scott, though has averaged 25 points per game. The Beavers are 0 & 4 on the road and in region games and have a 1 and 6 record.
