After rushing for two touchdowns and over 100 yards against Breathitt County in the season-opener, junior running back Johnathan Short accounted for 90 yards on 10 carries against Lynn Camp.
While Estill County’s offense was impressive, so was the Engineer defense. Estill County limited Lynn Camp to 152 yards of total offense. Junior safety Noah Lutes recorded an interception, while sophomore lineman Caleb Ross recorded three sacks.
“Overall, I was pretty pleased with the game,” Estill County head coach Jordan Marcum said. “We rushed the ball for a ton of yards, and I couldn’t be happier with that.”
The Engineers were scheduled to play Rockcastle County on Sept. 25, but that game has been cancelled because Estill County is currently listed as a COVID-19 red zone. As of now, Estill County’s next game is slated for Oct. 2 at Jackson County.
