Indians get win in Preseason Classic

By Ryan Butler

A late touchdown pass from Josh Smith to James Corbin provided the decisive score in Chiefland's exciting 41-27 win over Victory Christian Friday night at Wayne Pridgeon Stadium in Chiefland. 

Storm receiver Brice Ford brought Victory Christian to within one score late in the fourth quarter after breaking a hitch route into a 47-yard touchdown. But the Indians marched down the field on the next drive, scoring on Corbin's over-the-shoulder basket catch as he slid into the endzone inches from the pylon. 

"I was thinking to myself if I drop this I'm dead," Corbin said. The Chiefland junior said he had told head coach Aaron Richardson to give him a chance to catch the ball before the play. He capitalized on the opportunity and his team secured a big win in the Preseason Classic. Chiefland opens regular-season play next Friday night at Lecanto.
