Even with the economy in shambles, Anderson County football coach Mark Peach is looking for a little extra money for a member of his staff.
“We need to increase Coach (Duane) Hammons’ pay,” Peach quipped about his defensive coordinator. His Bearcats had just beaten long-time rival Mercer County, 28-6, Friday night.
The Bearcats held Mercer without an offensive touchdown. Anderson stopped Mercer twice inside the two-yard line and limited the Titans to 161 yards offensively, 78 of which came on two plays.
