Cardinals stay red-hot on Senior Night

It was Senior Night at Lendon Martin Memorial Stadium last Friday night and the future 2012 graduates finished an impressive regular season 9-1 after a 38-22 win over the McKenzie Rebels.

The careers of 19 senior football players, 16 senior band members, and one senior cheerleader were celebrated before the game began.

Cardinal Head Coach Brandon Gray had a strong message for his team leading up to what was arguably the Cardinals’ biggest game of the year. It was a message that he delivered not just this week, but 655 days before when Adamsville began preparing for their next season after a 46-20 loss to the Rebels in the 2009 State Playoff Quarterfinals.

His message was, “If you want to be the best, you have to beat the best. If you aren’t the best, you better find out in a hurry how good the best is because that’s how good you have to become. You can’t be afraid of competition.”
