HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — In the latter part of the first half. the Whitesburg Christian Warriors found themselves in a stalemate with Asbury. As no one could find an advantage against the opposition especially when it came to running the ball on the edge.

So Whitesburg Coach Jimmy Nave Whitesburg and his staff made some adjustments to the offensive scheme and it turned out to be huge for running back Ryan Turner.

"Going into that half, we were all talking to each other," says Ryan Turner. Trying to make changes and I got the receivers to block different. I was able to do the rest.
