Kosciusko is idle this week, but head coach Kelly Causey is not using the downtime to take any breaks. Instead, he and his coaching staff will work with their players on ways to snap out of a recent lull that has seen the Whippets drop their last three contests.
Kosciusko dropped a 49-10 road contest at Grenada last week to fall to 1-3 on the season.
The margin of defeat is the Whippets’ highest this season, as their first two losses were determined by a mere 11 points.
Kosciusko defensive tackle Davonta Turner generated just enough height on a late fourth-quarter jump to block a Newton County field goal attempt.
Kosciusko took a two-point lead into the final two minutes of its season opener against Yazoo County, but a 25-yard Panther touchdown with just 47 seconds remaining in the game was enough to lead them past the Whippets.
