A Look at Lawrence County

Posted Oct 27, 2008

Lawrence County is proving themselves to be a bona-fide contender in the 4A state championship pool. The Cougars, led by a powerful running game, are content to line up and just pound the ball all night. A strong ground game and a stingy defense have fans in Monticello expecting big things come the state playoffs.

Scout.com Road Report
Kendrick Hardy Lawrence County (MS) RB / #27
C/O 2009 | Watch Video
Scout's Take: Hardy is a very physical runner who is content to make his living between the tackles rather than burning the edges. His first step needs some work, but he has the ability to get his shoulders square and take on would be tacklers head on. He could grow into a fullback. He has a very blue collar appeal to him.
Matthew Wells Lawrence County (MS) RB|S / #22
C/O 2010
Scout's Take: There is a lot to like about Matthew. He runs the ball with a full head of steam every time he gets it and he is looking towards the endzone as soon as he hits the hole. I think his future may lie on the defensive side of the ball. He has some very good ball skills and he is a very strong tackler in run support.
Joshua Cameron Lawrence County HS (MS) RB / #26
C/O 2010
Scout's Take: There is only one football to go around, but Josh gets his touches. He is a very efficient runner. He does not have a lot of wasted motion and he hits the hole hard. He has good change of direction and he accelerates out of his cuts well.
Jamie McCardle Lawrence County (MS) TE / #81
C/O 2010
Scout's Take: Jamie is an interesting prospect. Lawrence County uses their tights ends mainly as another tackle, so McCardle has the blocking skills to move ahead. He has a nice frame, but he will need to add some bulk to compete at the next level. He enjoys getting dirty and he has a very physical nature.
