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.
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.
This season the Georgetown College football Tigers have been playing with an added purpose for a lost teammate Colson Machlitt. Homecoming, the would-be sophomore shined down as Max Nussbaum wore his jersey. On the second offensive series for Bluefield College, the junior linebacker picked up a fumble and returned it 48 yards for Georgetown's first score.
"Something else happened there because that definitely was not expected," Nussbaum said. "There wasn't a whistle. There was a ball and nobody went for it. It was kind of rolling around. I just picked it up and kind of started jogging. Then I took off.
"It was a good way to honor Colson and good to get a win on homecoming."
The No. 11 Tigers (5-1, 3-0 MSC East) rolled 28-7 and improved coach Bill Cronin's Homecoming record to 20-0.
Georgetown College football improved to 2-0 in the Mid-South Conference East and 4-1 in 2016 with a 31-7 win over Kentucky Christian University Saturday. In the process two more Tigers were honored as MSC East Division Players of the Week.
For the third time in his career and first this season, Josh Harris wrapped up the Defensive Player of the Week. Along with his four tackles, three assisted and one solo, he had two interceptions on back-to-back drives to squelch the Knights hope of a rally in the second half. The senior defensive back took his first pick 30 yards back to the KCU 10 to set up the Tigers' final score of the afternoon.
