Warren Central High School football team has made many improvements to their offense in 2022 and currently sit with a 5-1 record midway through the season.

In 2021, WC averaged 20 points each match by the sixth game, but are now averaging 29 points a game and pulling off some big wins in the process. The Vikings are coming off a 35-point performance in a win over Northwest Rankin.

The Vikings’ success on offense can be linked to many reasons, beginning with their run options that consist of lead rushers Trey Hall, Darius Carter and Mark Gray, Jr. Hall, who have managed to gain seven rushing touchdowns this season.

Although WC has plenty of veterans running the ball, sophomore Eric Collins, Jr. fits in well on the varsity level after a great performance last week of 117 rushing yards and two touchdowns.

Not only has WC profited from their ability to run the ball, but they have also been aggressive with putting the ball in the air and getting positive results.

Senior Jack Wright is taking the snaps at quarterback and has proven he’s not afraid to sling the ball to his receivers. Wright has thrown for over 700 yards and five touchdowns so far this season and has connected with Hall, Gray and Zack Evans, who assist with getting the ball down the field.

Although Wright has a special connection with the older receivers, he has leaned on sophomore Maddox Lynch this year to come up with some big catches. Lynch had a notable performance in a 42-41 overtime win against Oak Grove where Wright connected with him three times for 130 yards and a touchdown, along with the game-winning two-point conversion.

The skill players are a key focus of the offenses’ success, Brandon January, Beau Davis, Jerald Woods, Jaylen Parker, Claude King Jr., and Darius Fuller have put in a lot of hard work to keep Wright protected and pave the way for the run game.

Offensive Coordinator Rob Morgan is calling the plays offensively, and WC is heading in the right direction with their current performances.
