BROOKSVILLE — The turnaround at Hudson continues into Mark Kantor’s second season as coach. The former Gaither product coached the team to a 3-7 record in 2012 and the Cobras are feeding off that success. Hudson made big offensive plays to come away with a victory against Brooksville Central.
“We walked into a tough environment and were able to come away with a victory,” Kantor said. “(Brooksville Central) is a much improved team and coming away with a win in Week One is tremendous.”
Coming off a seemingly bad loss to Spring Hill Springstead the week before in a Kickoff Classic, Hudson (1-0) opened up its offense against Brooksville Central. Cobras quarterback Joey Caruso and tailback Noah Siegrist each had running scores in the victory.
Trailing 17-12, Hudson took an 18-17 lead on Caruso’s 79-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Zach Russell. Hudson never looked back and added two more touchdowns to put the game away.
Hudson returns to the road next week at Wiregrass Ranch and then will host Weeki Wachee in its home opener Sept. 13.
