Build, tone and sculpt are three words most often associated with the human muscles. What if your biggest fear was not losing the fight to fatty tissue, but not being able to keep any muscle in your body.
It is what patients diagnosed with muscular dystrophy and their families face every day. The body stops producing dystrophin, the protein in the body that provides linkage to the extracellular matrix. The absence of which renders muscle cells susceptible to necrosis – the death of most or all of the cells in an organ or tissue.
"Our little boy has it, he is four," said Katie Burke. "Watching him go from being a two-year-old getting into everything to an almost five-year-old that can't walk upstairs breaks your heart."
Georgetown College rolled up another 63 points and remained undefeated in the 2014 season. The No. 8 Tigers (2-0) hit the road for a 63-14 win over Lindenwood University Belleville.
DeMonte Smith did the heavy lifting with three scores for five this season. Joe Ganci also had a multi-touchdown day with a rushing and receiving score. He had five catches for 95 yards, adding 17 yards on three carries. Smith went 73 yards on 11 carries and Zach Harris had another good game on the ground with a game-high 93 yards on 10 attempts.
Georgetown College football went from No. 12 in the preseason poll to No. 8 Monday afternoon as released by the NAIA. The Tigers (1-0) started the season Saturday with an impressive 63-7 manhandling of Bethel University.
If there were any concerns about the offensive line for Georgetown College, Saturday's 63-7 win over Bethel University should have helped to ease some minds. The No. 12 Tigers (1-0) had no trouble moving the ball against the Wildcats.
GC rolled up 492 yards on 73 plays and had the game well in hand just more than four minutes into action. They took the opening kickoff 80 yards on five plays in 2:35 seconds for a two-yard rush from Kyle Longworth. On the ensuing kickoff, the Wildcats (0-3) missed the ball and Georgetown recovered on BU's 10-yard line. Three plays later it was Demonte Smith for the first of his two rushing touchdowns and a 14-0 lead.
"Neal (Pawsat) played a great game. Demonte played a great game," said GC coach Bill Cronin. "The offensive line proved a lot today. It was a good first game and great to get back on the field for live action."
The No. 12 Tigers open the 2014 season against Bethel University 1:30 pm Saturday at Toyota Stadium. Georgetown College will then play 10 straight, having received the lone bye week this past weekend.
"It has been nice to have the extra time to get everyone ready," said GC football coach Bill Cronin. "We graduated a number of offensive lineman and it has been good to take the extra time to get these guys game-ready."
The Tigers lost Dustin Brown, Kevin Connaughton, Wes Smith, Sam Schulte, Aaron Wilson and Jake Buchanan off the line that protects veteran quarterback Neal Pawsat.
