RiverHawks in search of kicker

04/04/03 Brandon Sykes

If offense sells tickets and defense wins championship then what does a kicker do? 

Well for one thing he doesn’t play for Tennessee.  The RiverHawks lose another game, only this time it was by one point.  Tennessee didn’t feel the need for a kicker this season, but that idea might be changing. 

Against Myrtle Beach on Tuesday night it was truly an offensive game.  The only question was, who would have the ball last?  As you can see from the score Tennessee fell a little short. 

Both running backs had a good game however.  Dockery and Walker both were the go to guys during the game, but indoor football is mainly a passing game. 

Tennessee has a week off to get things together for Evansville.  Tennessee is still looking for their first win of the season, but like I said earlier, it is still early in the season to make any predictions on who will be at the big dance at the end.. 

There are still many new faces coming in every week.  Jarvis Reado our offensive lineman went down with a season ending knee injury.  With one University of Tennessee grad out for the season we bring in another one.  John Finlayson, who play tight end for the Vols will step in and take the place of Reado.  Finlayson won a national championship in 1998 and played a key role with the Vols with his blocking abilities.  Thomas McCray came in at wide receiver and caught one pass for a touchdown. 

Practice starts up on Tuesday and the RiverHawks are getting better as the season moves on.  Evansville is the only thing on the mind of the players and coaches at this time.
