White Hall won their second consecutive "Highway 270 Classic" game Friday night, taking down Sheridan 49-13.
Senior quarterback Ollie Reddick had the Bulldogs' fans cheering loudly by accounting for five touchdowns.
Reddick connected with senior tight end Devin Koonce for the first score of the game early in the first quarter. Senior athlete Layne Hartsfield got in the end zone for the fourth time this season with a 24-yard touchdown run that put White Hall ahead 14-0.
Sheridan then responded with their first score of the game when senior Justin Pruitt ran it in from 10 yards out.
It wouldn't take long for the Bulldogs to add to their lead, as junior Baylor Owen took the ensuing kickoff back 83 yards for a touchdown. Although they led 35-13 at halftime, White Hall head coach Mike Vaughn made it known that the game was far from over.
"I thought we faced adversity and fought back well," Vaughn said. "At halftime we talked about it, and even though we were ahead, one score could've put them back in the ball game. We responded and I'm pleased with that."
Just as Vaughn alerted, Sheridan came out of halftime and struck first with a 35-yard touchdown connection between Brayden Sites and Jason May.
However, that would be the last score of the game for Sheridan, as the Bulldogs defense stiffened.
Reddick scored the final two touchdowns of the game in the third quarter on runs of 11 and seven yards. He finished the game completing 10/18 passes for 195 yards and three touchdowns. Reddick also carried the ball 10 times for 99 yards and two touchdowns.
Reddick and his fellow seniors have answered the question posed by Vaughn: Would they be able to lead?
"They've done that very much so," Vaughn said of his seniors owning leadership. "We had to see how it would play out, and so far we can't say anything but great things. We don't know going in from week to week who it'll be for us. That's just the way our offense operates. We put the ball on edges, and they love that."
Now that their non-conference slate is complete, the Bulldogs want to carry this momentum into conference play, where every game matters.
"It's a physical battle every game from now on," Vaughn said. "Now if you lose, it's going to hurt your standings in conference. It's a total different animal to be honest. I have no doubt that we'll be focused. Homecoming will be great for the guys. We have to get off to a good start if we want to compete for a conference championship."
