Flashback Football: Warren Central was the only team to defeat Cam Akers in 2016

Published

on

Cam Akers will be one of the top running backs in the NFL draft this year after three successful seasons at Florida State University.

Before attending FSU, Akers was a star athlete at Clinton High School who helped the Arrows win a state championship with a 14-1 record. Just past midseason, the Arrows had an 8-0 record with Akers starting at quarterback, and they traveled to Vicksburg to play the Vikings on Oct. 21, 2016.

The Vikings shocked the state of Mississippi on how they handled No.1 ranked Clinton. They scored 50 points that night. Warren Central running back Demarcus Jones had an outstanding night, scoring 4 touchdowns with 138 yards.

Quarterback Jesse Wilson also had a fantastic by gaining over 300 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns.

The Vikings sent their defensive players at Akers all night which forced him to make plenty of mistakes, enough to hurt his team in the end. Akers still managed to get over 400 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns but it still wasn’t enough to win the game, as they lost 50-32 against the Vikings.

The Vikings showed they meant business when they knocked off the best team in the state of Mississippi.

A month later in the playoffs, Akers got his revenge on the Vikings as the eliminated them from the playoffs in a 27-21 Arrow overtime victory.

Akers left Clinton to play on the next level at FSU, and he is now set to be drafted into the NFL on April 23.
