CARY – Chris Martin is in his first year as Athens Drive’s head coach after five seasons as the defensive coordinator, so he reached into retired coach Jeff Smouse's offensive playbook for an option pass against Green Hope. The play worked to help the Jaguars take a 24-20 Tri-Nine victory.

The Jaguars were trailing 7-3 and facing a third-and-7 from their 41-yard line with less than two minutes until halftime when Martin sent his backup quarterback, Brad Bowling, onto the field with his starter, Jason West.

West pitched to Bowling, Bowling rolled right and hit Henry Smith behind the Green Hope secondary for a 59-yard touchdown pass to take a 10-7 lead and the with 1:22 remaining until halftime.
