A special thanks to the fans, athletes, students, parents, and alumni of all the Blount County School's.

    Locust Fork makes statement on the ground, shuts out Montevallo, (47-0).

                   The lights, the music playing over the P.A. system, the smell of the freshly cut grass, and the sound of the occasional whistle as players ran through their warm up session- football season was here.

                    Locust Fork at Montevallo was the BCS Game of the Week in week one. As always, the Locust Fork fan base traveled well, despite the two hour drive, and they would not be disappointed. The Hornets came out firing on all cylinders and those cylinders didn't stop until the clock hit double zero at the end of the 4th quarter. Locust Fork received the ball to start the game and four plays later, QB Todd Goodwin punched it in for six. Five minutes after that, Micah Stephens put up six of his own followed by a 21 yard rushing touchdown by Hayden Jackson to open up the second quarter. Locust Fork scored on their first three possessions and scored again right before halftime to lead the Bulldogs, (26-0). Montevallo never crossed the 50 yard line in the first half. The second half was no different as the Hornets stuck to their rushing game and sealed the win by putting up an extra 21 points. Locust Fork's offense looked flawless from the stands and the stats back that up. Locust Fork rushed for 421 yards on 59 attempts while averaging over seven yards per carry. All seven of the Hornet's touchdowns were on the ground. Hayden Jackson led the rushing attack with 7 carries, 90 yards, and one touchdown. Dakota Karluk followed who had 6 carries for 68 yards. Both Todd Goodwin and Michael Reid contributed two touchdowns a piece while Shiloh Biles carried the ball ten times for 68 yards and a touchdown. Micah Stephens rushed ten times for 65 yards and one touchdown also. The offense looked great, but the defense was stellar. Locust Fork only allowed eight 1st downs and under 160 yards of total offense. They also held Montevallo to one 3rd down conversion out of the attempted ten. Shiloh Biles led the defense with a total of six tackles followed by Isaiah Kirkley and Alex Long who each had five. Offensive penalties seemed to be the only thing that hurt the Hornets. The offense had eight penalties for 89 yards while the defense only had two penalties for 10 yards. Locust Fork will be on the road once again this Friday night against Westbrook Christian.
