Former starter Austin Herink has been elevated to fill in at quarterback for the Cleveland High School varsity, after junior QB Chad Voytik suffered a compound fracture of a finger two weeks ago.
Cleveland’s offensive line played well against Hixson as Reggie Mills, Jonathon Terrero and D.J. Jackson sparked the rushing attack. Defensively, Cleveland caused several turnovers and had a couple of pass interceptions with one returned for a touchdown to end the game.
The Cleveland freshmen will play again Monday, playing host to Walker Valley at 6 p.m.
