Kennesaw Mountain "Jump Out Quick" In 49-0 Win Over Osborne

Kennesaw Mountain quarterback Cayman Prangley (#3) drops back in the pocket against Osborne

As teams continue to open up region play throughout Georgia, the Kennesaw Mountain Mustangs and Osborne Cardinals headed into their Friday night matchup both putting 5-0 records on the line and looking to start off 1-0 in the region standings. With the Cardinals celebrating their homecoming, the Mustangs made it a point to come out and take some energy out of the crowd and that is exactly what they would do.

On the opening drive of the game, the Mustangs would throw a striking blow on the very first play of the game, as Kennesaw Mountain quarterback, Cayman Prangley would connect with Jailen Taylor for an 80 yard touchdown pass and with the extra point, the Mustangs would take the early 7-0 lead. On the ensuing Osborne possession, despite a few positive plays, the Cardinals would eventually stall and be forced to punt the ball back to the Mustangs, who would cap their second drive with a Prangley rushing touchdown and go up 14-0.

Not to be outdone, on the ensuing possession for the Cardinals, the Kennesaw Mountain defense would make a statement play, one that would signal the start of a struggling night in the passing game for Osborne, as linebacker David Attaochu would come up with an interception and return it for a touchdown as the Mustangs would extend their lead to 21-0. With Kennesaw Mountain taking away their passing game and making them one dimensional, Osborne’s offensive struggles continued throughout the night.

However for the Mustangs, Prangley would finish with five touchdowns, four passing and one rushing, while the Kennesaw Mountain defense came up with six interceptions. “We knew we wanted to come out fast, because we knew confidence was going to be big on both sides,” Kennesaw Mountain head coach, Caleb Carmean, said after the win, speaking of the opening touchdown on the first play of the game. “Our kids jumped out quick and answered the bell and to be able to start like that, that was a big night for sure,” Carmean added.

And with their shutout defensive performance, Carmean believes that his guys are “trending in the right direction,” on that side of the ball as he gave them praise for how they have been “attacking the ball and play fast”. Something to which Carmean says is what they want the team to be recognized for. “They played the brand of football that we want to be known for, for sure,” Carmean said.
