On Friday night the Tornadoes cruised to a win over the Effdingham Falming Hearts 64-20 in Effingham. Wide receiver Yemi Odugabason piled up 3 touchdowns in the win, and All-State wide out Justin Wright added one as well. Head coach Jeb Odam spoke on his quarterback Brandon Odam, and the offense’s ability with two capable receivers on the outside.
Just after a Tornado touchdown in the 3rd quarter, the game went into a weather delay due to some nearby lightning. Coach Odam spoke on how he kept his team focused.
Next week the Tornadoes play at home for the first time of the season. That means the new turf will debut as Charleston comes to town. Coach Odam is looking forward to that as well as senior night.
After Friday night’s win, Taylorville improved to 2-0 on the season remaining undefeated.
