Athens Drive shows off new uniforms, takes down Holly Springs
September 24, 2012Tri-Nine Conference
RALEIGH - Athens Drive rolled out black jerseys for the first time under the lights at Williams Stadium Friday night, and their performance in the alternate tops left visiting Holly Springs feeling the Jaguars' traditional color -- blue.
The Jaguars roughed up the Golden Hawks 27-10, controlling the ball offensively, dominating defensively and capitalizing on their kicking game to stay undefeated in the Tri-9 (3-0).
Looking to inspire his charges during a summer fundraiser, Athens coach Chris Martin told his players if they raised a certain amount he would introduce a black jersey to their uniform options.
The players were clearly inspired to reach their goal, and they played as such in their new threads.
"It worked becasue they played great," Martin said. "We'll break them out every once in a while. It gets the guys excited. We said it'd be a blackout, and all our fans all wore black t-shirts. It's something we're trying to do get people more involved."
