Well that was impressive.
Facing Greenville in a preseason game Friday night, the Callaway Cavaliers rolled to a 39-0 victory in Hogansville.
The Cavaliers were up 26-0 at the half when the starters were in the game, and they added two more touchdowns in the second half.
Callaway will open its season on Friday against LaGrange.
In the first half, Callaway dominated on both sides of the ball.
Callaway’s offense had six first-half possessions, and it scored touchdowns on four of those, and the other two possessions ended with turnovers.
Callaway’s running game was unstoppable in the first half, with Eddie Culpepper, Cedric Maynard, fullback Brandon Boddie and quarterback Dre Martin ripping off big chunks of yardage behind a veteran offensive line that created huge holes.
The defense was just as dominant, with Greenville unable to sustain anything offensively.
The Cavaliers’ first drive ended with a loss fumble deep in Greenville territory, but they found the end zone the next time they had the ball.
Boddie capped a 55-yard drive with an 11-yard touchdown run.
The next time they had the ball, the Cavaliers went 75 yards for the touchdown, with Culpepper taking it in from 10 yards out.
After the first quarter, Callaway led 14-0.
In the second quarter, Greenville came up with an interception with Callaway on the 10-yard line.
Callaway’s defense made a stop, and the offense went right back to work, going 55 yards for another score, with Culpepper taking it in from one yard out for the touchdown.
Maynard had a long run to set up the score.
With less than two minutes left in the first half, Martin’s 8-yard keeper gave Callaway a 26-0 lead.
In the second half, Dylan Johnson took over at quarterback, and he was impressive.
Johnson threw a touchdown pass to A.J. Braxton, and he also had a scoring run of about 40 yards to cap the scoring.
Cameron Spinks and Hunter Milliman both did a nice job on extra points.
In other preseason games Friday, LaGrange lost to Newnan 23-6, and Troup fell to Upson-Lee 26-14.
