Little Axe: Indians movin' forward...
By Robert Przybylo
The No. 1 thing I gather from talking to anybody at Little Axe: the tornado that ripped through the community is not going to define them.
There’s a real fighter’s attitude with the group, and for the football team, that starts with coach Tony Smith.
Smith was in charge last year, leading the team to its best record and its first playoff berth.
This season will be a challenge, but Smith said the team has responded well.
“The first week of practice went real well. We’re trying to move on and get past everything that’s happened,” Smith said.
Little Axe will play at least its first couple of home games at Noble. The bleachers for the new stadium are supposed to come in next week, Smith said.
Noble and Little Axe have reached an agreement for the Indians to play all their home games at Noble, if necessary.
Robby Dryden and Dustin Hawkins get a lot of attention, but Smith said wide receiver Jacob Bookout has been impressive as has the offensive line.
