ScoutSouth.com: Cullman at Decatur

The Cullman Bearcats come into Friday night's contest with a perfect 12-0 record and a big part of that reason are the Bearcat skill players.



Mike Timmons leads the team in rushing with 1,719 yards on 181 attempts, with 22 touchdowns and only two fumbles all season. Timmons is averaging more than nine yards per carry, and he's coming off his best game of the season with a 280 yard performance vs. Chelsea last week.

If that isn't enough to worry about you have wide receiver Gavin Ellis at 6-6.5, 220 and a 4.6 40-yard dash, and he has been impressive all season. Ellis has snagged 59 balls out of mid-air for 982 yards and 15 touchdowns. He is averaging 16.6 yards per catch, which puts him right up there with the likes of Julio Jones and other great receivers around the state, as far as stats go.

Quarterback Tyler Caldwell is leading the Bearcat attack as he has thrown 29 touchdown passes this season with only four interceptions, and he is completing more than 64-percent of his passes. The offense has rolled up more than 5,000 yards this season, but they do play defense as well.

Colton Turner leads the Bearcat defense from his middle linebacker position with 129 tackles through 12 games. Turner is a player who has a natural ability to get to the ball and fight off opposing blockers.

The rest of the defense is solid, but they feed off Turner as he and teammate JJ Guthrie (6-1, 210, 4.8 OLB) make one big play after another on the defensive side of the ball. Turner is 6-1, 210 pounds and reports a 4.7 40.

So what do you do with all that talent? Coach Jere Adcock of Decatur has the unenviable task of figuring that out this week as his Raiders host the Bearcats this week in the 3rd round of the playoffs.
