The Harrison Wildcats football squad improved its record to 4-0 last Friday night with a 56-6 victory over Little Miami. It marks the best start since the 2002 season when the Dick Nocks-coached Wildcats won their first six games on the way to an 8-2 record.

It was a bittersweet victory, though. Little Miami was playing without one of its top players, senior Brayden Thornbury, who died earlier in the week from brain injuries suffered in a single-car crash on Sept. 6.

Harrison Wildcats football coach Kent McCullough has been waiting for his offense to make a statement, particularly in the running game, and last Friday night, in a 45-13 trouncing of Anderson, the Cats did just that.

“Our offensive line has been progressing each week,” said McCullough. “They made some holes for Alex Anderson and he continues to evolve as a running back. When we can run the ball like we did tonight, that allows Jake (Weber) more time to throw the ball.”
