The Park Crossing Thunderbirds proved the old adage of “bend but don’t break” is still in vogue on Friday.

The Thunderbirds’ defense gave up just over 300 yards offense but never allowed Stanhope Elmore to cross the goal line in a 19-0 win at Cramton Bowl.

The win was the first for Park Crossing (2-1, 1-0 6A-R2) over Stanhope (0-2, 0-1) in three tries.

MILLBROOK – He’s rushed for approximately 2,500 yards over the last two years, but it doesn’t seem to earn B.J. Smith the same reverence given to other 1,000-yard rushers.

The Stanhope Elmore High senior takes it all in stride, admitting his 5-foot-9, 180-pound frame is probably a large reason why people tend to overlook him.

"Just trying to keep it moving," he said. "We've got a lot of work to do. And we don't have a lot of time."

Time is now up. Game Day is here for the new coach.
