With a young team, it is always important to get off to a good start.
Starkville Academy did just that as the Volunteers went the length of the field on the very first drive during Friday's 49-8 victory over Hillcrest Christian School.
As the offense jumped out to a quick 21-0 lead, the defense had an equally impressive start holding Hillcrest Christian to only three plays during the same time frame.
The play-calling for the Vols included a heavy dose of running as the game continued, which helped maintain game tempo. There were brief moments where Starkville Academy aired it out.
