KPGFootball is proud to be the exclusive digital coverage provider of the Todd County Central Rebels football team. Todd County, as this on-line publication has before reported, has a lot of exciting things going on in and around its football program. The Rebels will be coached this upcoming season by veteran football coach, Darell Keith, and return a lot of young talent from off a 6-5 football team. The excitement about the program and its future prospects has resulted in an uptick in financial donations permitting the program to initiate some exciting facility upgrades. These upgrades will leave the field and press box area unparalleled anywhere in the immediate area regarding high school football facilities. They include field, natural turf improvements and modernizing the press box at the stadium permitting luxury viewing accommodations for major supporters of the team. The renovated press box will be furnished lavishly and will feature big screen televisions in the booth from which the on-field action will be monitored by both patrons and working press during game action. Returning back to our tradition of singling out terrific players, particularly young players whose return, this year, signal a rejuvenated optimism about the team’s prospects, we have selected Class of 2021, Center/NG, Tyler Latham as this week’s Todd County Central Rebel of the Week.
On the eve of Sunday worship services, I thought I would share with you the fact there are five players on a football team who exemplify the tenets of Christianity better than any other position…the offensive linemen. Think about this for a moment: QB’s get all the glory (and blame) throwing and running for scores and running the team; RBs score TDs and gain yards for first downs; Receivers catch passes and score TDs; D-Linemen make tackles and recover fumbles; and LBs and DBs make tackles, recover fumbles, and intercept passes and, sometimes, even get to score TDs. What glory do the hogs, upfront, along an offensive line get? Sadly, the only time we notice them is when they make an error. Everything we ask of them is to either protect or pave the way for someone else’s glory and benefit. At the end of the day, if the O-lineman really play well, we forget they were even out there. Sound a lot like the passage from Luke 6:30 (Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again)?
Tyler Latham is a 5-11 230 pound offensive center who got some spot time last year at nose guard. He has been giving to every man behind him what was asked of him, and that is his earnest and persistent effort. Tyler also notched 6 tackles last year from nose guard to go along with his efforts upfront and, though he logged time in all 11 games last year, he will certainly be called upon more during his sophomore campaign to throw in his lot to make the Rebel offense run.
