    The game was already in hand, with the only question being the final score, but there was Anderson County quarterback Tyler Peters racing around left end. Just before he got to the sideline across the field from the Anderson bench, he took a wicked hit that lifted him off the ground. Then took another that flipped Peters in mid-air.
