Owls cornerback likes using instincts

Offense is about acting, and defense is about reacting. Seymour senior Nick Hester prefers the latter.

He is in his second season as the Owls’ starting cornerback.

On run plays, Hester said, “I definitely try to contain the outside. Especially last week against Brownstown, they would constantly crack block, so when they crack, they go after either the safety or the linebacker. So I’d come up and fill in their position.”

This week against Jennings County, though, he said, “It’s going to be staying back, because just like Floyd Central they are going to pound in the run, and then once you least expect it, they will start passing it. So we have to stuff them up front and then make them resort to passing because I feel like we’ve covered that very nicely this year.”
