Who says you can't go home again?
Not Fayette County coach Tommy Webb.
Friday night at Twelve Oaks Stadium, the former Jonesboro High School head coach beat his old team 21-0 to stay unbeaten on the season.
Jonesboro made its last trip to the playoffs during Webb's tenure with the Cardinals from 2001-2003, when Harry Douglas, Jamal Lewis and Darrell Robertson all played for the team before eventually signing Division I football scholarships.
Webb, who also served as head coach at Riverdale, might get used to playing games in his old county. Last week, the Tigers' rolled past Mt. Zion in the season opener for both teams.
With the loss, Jonesboro dropped to 0-2 and is still trying to find its offense after getting shut out for the second straight week. A week ago, the Cardinals lost to Upson-Lee to begin the season.
The Cardinals managed just five first downs against the Tigers' defense and saw two possible scoring drives stall on an interception and a fumble. But second-year head coach Clint Satterfield is not ready to panic.
"We obviously have to go out there and correct some things, because we haven't scored in two games, but I am pleased with the effort and how hard we played," he said.
Fayette County attacked the Cardinals' defense with a mix of passing and running throughout the game, and at times used a two-quarterback system to roll up 15 first downs. Starting quarterback Brandon Boykin took the bulk of the snaps for the Tigers, but Andrew Prosser came in and ran a couple of series too.
