With exactly one week until the Warren Central Warriors kick off their 2017 campaign they decided to tune up with some duns from Jeffersonville in a pre-season scrimmage. However, before they got it in they honored the life of former Warrior great Dijon Anderson who was tragically killed this past May just a week before goin’ off to Southern Illinois University on a full football scholarship. I wrote a crazy Hot Joint at the time of his passin’ entitled “Young King” explainin’ to boyz that he was more than a football player. He was leader.

Here’s a video of the warm tribute given to this young man’s life with his family present. What a classy move on Warren Central’s part! Family is family bruh!!

Once the No.3 ranked team in the state paid homage to the fallen homie they got down to business for the night. In true sportsman like conduct they gave the rock to Jeffersonville for 20 plays first and you would swear that they had unleashed the darn Indianapolis Colts on them. The first play from scrimmage was an interception and it went down hill from there for the Red Devils bruh.

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! The Warren Central front seven was nuts!!! On just about every snap they were sittin’ on top of Jeffersonville’s quarterback. No breathin’ room at all. Do you hear me? They were so dominant on defense that the Red Devils from southern Indiana only gained 2 positive yards on their first 20 plays. However, they probably lost 40!!

The Warren Central defensive secondary played like a well oiled machine. Duns like Calum and Ciree Carruthers stood out to me the way they hunted the ball, runnin’ backs, and quarterbacks. Talk about havin’ great ball skills? NUTS!!

Well I guess that it’s safe to say that Warren is as good, if not better, than advertised on defense. So let’s see what a boy has on offense right? On the first play from scrimmage Jason Holland exploded for a 20 yard gain. Straight stud!!!

But why was I surprised? I was down on the field before the scrimmage and walked passed ole boy and he looked like a football player. I know a stud when I see one playa!! My whole life has been football. He knew how to rock his uniform and walked like he had business to take care of. So needless to say he took care of that business on Friday night puttin’ boyz on notice that he’s ready to play and he’s gonna look good doin’ it playboy. That’s what’s up!

Not only was he a monster totin’ the rock but his boy, Romeir Elliot, stiff armed a cat on his way to a touchdown and darn near knocked his head off. Boi…havin’ a one-two punch like that comin’ at you all night is gonna be a problem.

Then I zoned in on the wide receiver corp along with Jayden George throwin’ the rock. Now David Bell, who’s the next great one to come out of Indy as I explained in the crazy Hot Joint entitled “Eye Balls” wasn’t even suited and booted. So I thought that the receivin’ corp would take a serious hit. All due respect to Bell, but they didn’t miss a beat. Dajour Griffie and Dean Tate held it down like four flat tires catchin’ darn near everything George put in the air.

I was impressed with Jayden George’s ability to remain calm in the pocket, not force balls and he threw them like they were on a string. Yep! Warren’s ready to play football in 2017. I hope everybody else is because otherwise, it’s gonna be a long season. Stop me when I start lyin’!

And oh yeah! The Warren Central fan experience is NUTS!! Boyz better recognize that it’s about havin’ a great time at the game!!!

Playas Thesaurus: 

1) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.

2) Ole Boy: noun – the person that I’m talkin’ about

3) NUTS: adjective – unbelievable

The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”
