Speed, they say, kills.
And if they are talking about football when they say that, they are so correct.
Tyler Consolidated is a power in Class A track, especially when it comes to sprint events.
Last Friday night Calhoun found out exactly how true that old adage is when the Knights not only scored early and often but also from long distance.
Kyle Mason had touchdown receptions of 59 and 38 yards, Tyler Anderson had touchdown receptions of 29 and 20 yards, Jace Reed had touchdown runs of 70 and 44 yards and Matt Rucker scored on a 29 yard run. None of the scores were from short distances.
Calhoun had 51 total yards offense despite Nick Murphy gaining 76 yards on 17 carries. Murphy's plus yardage was offset by sacks and tackles being the line.
And Friday nights loss to TCHS was just the "frying pan". Now the Red Devils step into the fire.
Calhoun's highway through hell gets under way Friday night when the top-ranked team in Class A, South Harrison, comes to Mount Zion,
Following that the Red Devils are on the road to No. 3 ranked St. Marys then away at No. 6 Gilmer County.
After that Calhoun closes out the season against Webster County and Clay.
