Alderson Broaddus University scored 31 unanswered points on its way to victory Saturday. The Battlers (6-2) beat the No. 10 Tigers (6-2) 38-13. This is second most lopsided loss at Toyota Stadium for Georgetown College football since 2013 when another NCAA Division II school, Ohio Dominican University, came to town.
"They're a good football team. They were able to shut us down in the passing game," said GC coach Bill Cronin. "They played up in our face and forced us to throw the ball, and we had a tough time doing that."
Georgetown managed just 96 yards of total offense on 48 plays from scrimmage, while ABU had 423 yards on 96 plays.
Georgetown College stayed perfect in Mid-South Conference East action Saturday with a big road win against Union College. Helping play big roles in that were JJ Jude and Josh Depp.
Jude had nearly 200-yards of all-purpose yards, while Depp continues to be a weapon in special teams. For their efforts they earned MSC East honors for the second time this season and in their careers.
Jude was MSC East Offensive Player of the Week. He rushed 18 times for 155 yards and a score. He also had two catches for 32 yards and one was the opening touchdown – a lead the Tigers (6-1, 4-0) never relinquished.
Georgetown College football got another big day from running back JJ Jude. The senior compiled 187 all-purpose yards and two scores as the No. 11 Tigers (6-1, 4-0 MSC East) beat Union College, 35-12, Saturday in Barbourville.
Jude rushed 18 times for 155 yards and had two receptions for 32 yards. He rushed for a touchdown and caught a 27 swing pass from Clay McKee for the first score of the game.
The Bulldogs (4-3, 2-1) responded right back on a one-play, 69 yard Alex Bell to Tyler Toombs strike. UC missed the extra point and that is as close as the game got.
Calling Georgetown College football's Kody Kasey inspirational is putting it mildly. The junior continues to impress, motivate and encourage his teammates with his heart, athletic abilities and drive. Every year veteran coach Bill Cronin hopes for a leader such as Kasey, but this year it almost seems God ordained to have him back in the huddle and on the field.
"Kody is a special individual, and we knew it the moment he arrived, but to see it further unfold with what he's been through is hard to put in words," Cronin said. "He's been a rallying force and a strong reminder to walk through difficult times. This year has been filled with its share of difficult experiences, but every day we come together as a family to practice and play, loving and supporting each other all the way."
Kasey underwent a larger than life test following a leg injury midway through his sophomore year in 2014. He was sidelined all of 2015 as countless surgeries to fix his broken leg failed. It became evident that the only option for a regular life would be to amputate it below the knee.
Georgetown College football took a 28-7 win on Homecoming Saturday. The No. 11 Tigers (5-1, 3-0) got a big defensive push in the victory and Jordan Nicoll led the way.
The junior linebacker forced a fumble on Bluefield College's second offensive series that was picked up and returned by teammate Max Nussbaum for GC's first score. Nicoll added nine tackles, two of which were sacks, as Georgetown claimed a 20th straight Homecoming win under coach Bill Cronin.
