Freddie Freeman, Toni Kroos, Tony discussed on Kentuckiana's Morning News
Good morning. I'm Toni Kroos. Scott Fitzgerald. What's happening in sports? Thank you very much, Tony. All eyes on that Friday night lights in just a couple of days with just two days left until another edition. Throughout the Commonwealth. It's time of press. According to the Cage s A. There were just three games not being played this week due to Covid. We'll see if that number holds over the next couple of days. They are Frederick Douglass taking on Henry Clay North Harden and John Harden and South Warren at Paducah. Tillman again just three games in Friday night lights not being played, staying with the longest college football teams around the Commonwealth and the Hoosier state continued to prepare for week three of the college football season. One team we didn't play last year due to Covid will face off against an NFL Hall of Famer Kentucky State travels to Nashville this weekend to do battle with Tennessee State and first year head coach Former Tennessee Titan Eddie George. And for George, he understands what his first one when his he's up against in his first year at the helm of the Tigers is going against those thoroughbreds fly off the ball. The quickness which jumps out at me is their ability to cut block effectively. They are efficient in their run game. They're very disciplined in the run games puts a lot of pressure on defense to make the right shits. To have discipline and to tackle get them on the ground. You'll make a couple of stops on 1st 2nd down and you have been 3rd and 13 or whatever, and they'll run the ball on the edge and get the first down. It's pretty impressive in there week one win. Meanwhile, Eddie George, returning to the floor of Nissan Stadium there on the field. For the first time since being a player making his debut as a head coach. We'll hear more about that, as the morning goes on. Speaking of the NFL the New Orleans Saints are dealing with some covid 19 issues of their own ahead of their game against the Carolina Panthers Sunday.
