Crittenden County’s second preseason scrimmage went more to plan on Friday night at Rocket Stadium as CCHS unleashed a compliment of offensive weapons to blitz Calloway County 39-0 in three quarters of varsity play. The Crittenden JV team won its only quarter 8-0.

for the Rocket offense Friday.
For CCHS, Sammy Impastato, Kaleb Nesbitt, Levi Piper, Preston Morgeson and quarterback Micah Newcom all scored touchdowns. Newcom was on target and effective, throwing mostly slants and screens. Running back Gattin Travis also ran the ball well for the Rockets and several other skilled position players got in on the offensive action.
CCHS had not performed well in its first outing of the season a week earlier at Hopkins Central, losing 13-7. Coach Gaige Courtney said he was proud of the improvement and challenged his team to get better in the coming days.
“Great teams work to get better after a win,” he said.
Crittenden will open the regular season this coming Friday at Murray.
