CLEVELAND -- White County's rushing attack is good, but Shannon Brooks showed that Pickens' ground game may be one of the best in the state on Friday.<br />
Brooks ran for 304 yards and four touchdowns on 25 carries to lead the Dragons past the Warriors 42-34 in Cleveland.<br />
White County (0-1) put up several strong performances on the night, including 79 yards rushing for Sam Turner and 74 yards for Max Taylor -- who each scored a touchdown. Quarterback A.J. Vandiver also completed 3 of 6 passes for 69 yards, one touchdown and an interception. He also rushed for 43 yards.<br />
Sutton caught the touchdown, taking advantage of a tipped ball from the Pickens defense to score from 49 yards.<br />
Pickens took the lead and held it for much of the night, including at 42-20 before White County ripped off two quick scores to pull within 42-34. But the Dragons snagged an onside kick attempt and ground out a first down to seal the win.<br />
White County will look to bounce back at Jackson County next week.
