  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]

The sky could be the limit for BG’s offense

In the past four games, the BG football team has found some things out about itself. More importantly, after Friday’s game, the Falcons know how good they can be.

With the installment of Anthony Turner in the offense, the sky seems to be the limit. Turner played a few snaps at quarterback, wide receiver and tailback Friday, and did pretty well at all three. He threw for a score on a play when he was sure to run. The long pass across the middle to Chris Wright is something the Falcons have had in their back pocket all along.

“It is a play that we have had for some time,” said BG coach Gregg Brandon. “And we just knew that it would work tonight.”

Then once he instilled the fear of the forward pass into the Zips, Turner ran for a touchdown the next time he took the snap in the red zone.

It was only a matter of time until Turner found his niche in the BG offense. The guy is a phenomenal athlete. And when you see him run now, he’s looking to run people over, probably because he doesn’t have to worry about throwing the ball. Turner can just lower his shoulder and bring the pain.

“AT has really done a great job at accepting his role and that role is expanding,” Brandon said. “The way we used him tonight is the way we need to use him.”

That was pretty evident when he peeled back and threw a great block on a Tyler Sheehan run. Turner was almost playing recklessly, and you could tell he was having a blast.

“I tried it twice,” Turner said with a smile. “The first time, it didn’t work too well, but the second time I got him.”

The Falcons were without their top two running backs Friday. Eric Ransom is out for the season with a knee injury and Willie Geter is week-to-week with an ankle injury. So Turner’s ability to run is very important for BG. He gained 104 yards on just 12 carries Friday, part of the Falcons 216 total rushing yards.

Sheehan wasn’t too shabby either. He gets lost in the shuffle when the running game turns on, but the sophomore was 26-for-36 and didn’t throw many bad balls.

“It felt good to be involved with things, but the offensive line and Tyler Sheehan made everything the way it was,” Turner said.

The Falcons’ offense punted just once and missed a field goal. Those two drives were the only ones that didn’t produce points.

The unit was otherwise unstoppable. Standout cornerback Reggie Corner had trouble all day long trying to keep up with Freddie Barnes and Chris Wright, who had eight and five catches, respectively.
