Bolus explained that practice situations prepared him for the opening kickoff against Houston County.
“During practice, we always practice returns by going up the middle and then bouncing outside,” Bolus said. “So that is what I did.”
Bolus also had one reception on his only target for 79 yards and a score.
“On the other touchdown, I just made a play, I guess,” Bolus said. “We had to. It is my last year and I had to turn it up.” He finished the game with 65 yards rushing on 12 attempts.
The Greyhounds, who played in the Corky Kell at Mercer last season, did not let up, and with 6:49 left in the first quarter, quarterback Teldrick Ross found a crease and rushed for a 68-yard touchdown. Ross, who would score again in the second quarter on a 40-yard run, finished the game with 161 yards rushing and 107 yards passing.
