Hinton, Bearcats kick Franklin 38-6
“What a performance he put on tonight,” Ruston coach Billy Laird said. “I don’t know that I’ve even seen a performance from a high school kicker like that. What a great weapon he is for us.”
With Ruston clinging to a 21-6 lead near the end of the third quarter, the Bearcats faced a fourth-and-27 at the Winnsboro 35-yard line. Laird called a timeout to discuss the team’s options.
“He (Laird) was just standing there, thinking,” Hinton said of his coach during the timeout. “He finally said, ‘Field goal. I was surprised.’”
