E.J. is pumped for the season-opener as you’d expect. He just yelled, “Let’s go!” while jumping up and down during warmups.

We’re currently in a lightning delay. Teams had to come off the field.

PA announcer just said the teams will return to the field at 7:15 (central time). They will warm up for 15 minutes and the game is scheduled to start at 7:30.

There’s been more lightning in the area, so they must wait 30 minutes before taking the field per rules. So the teams are now scheduled to warm up at 7:45.

Of course, there’s been several lightning strikes since I posted that

E.J. just caught a pass near the goal line and ran it in for a touchdown to give Central a 14-0 lead over Hoover near the 7-minute mark of the second quarter.

EJ added a couple more receptions on Central’s first drive of the second half. That makes four catches for the game

Hoover scores a touchdown at the 5:35 mark of the third quarter to cut Central’s lead to 14-7.

Hoover quarterback Robby Ashford, an Ole Miss commit, actually caught the touchdown pass on a nicely designed trick play.

So Central just scored a touchdown — or what was ruled as a touchdown on the field. The play is now under review... didn’t know they had replay in HS football.

The play stands and Hoover converts the PAT. We’re now tied 14-14 with 3:37 left in the third quarter.
