Community Foundation Pleased To Announce A New Scholarship

Raymond & Marjorie Lisby Raymond & Marjorie Lisby The Putnam County Community Foundation is pleased to announce a new scholarship. The Raymond & Marjorie Lisby Scholarship will help a Putnam County high school graduate pursue a degree in fine arts at DePauw University.

The scholarship endowment was started by former long time Putnam County resident, Marjorie Lisby. Marjorie Harter met Raymond Lisby shortly after moving to Fillmore. The two were married in 1936 and raised their family just outside Fillmore. Marjorie’s artistic interests and accomplishments include performing, visual and culinary arts. Raymond was known for his ability to take an idea and turn it into a working product in his wood and metal working shop. Their love of the arts and creativity was instilled each of covering two fumbles in the first half.

The Clovers got on the board for the first time at the 7:54 mark when senior wide receiver Trevor Lockwood took a carry 13 yards for a score, while Brinkman found the end zone at the 3:51 mark on a seven-yard scamper. Both scores were followed by field goals from senior Brian Dale.

“Jordan runs with great vision. Throughout the year we’ve had issues with the offensive line, but our kids get progressively better each week,” coach Butler noted. “Our coaches stick to the plans and this last Friday night, our line did real well with maintaining their blocks, running their feet and maintaining contact on the first line defenders. Our running backs, even our three linemen we put back there to get their names in the record books with a touchdown, they ran with great vision. There were times when the hole was there and then it wasn’t so they saw an opening elsewhere and took it and broke some tackles.”

In the second period, the Clovers saw fullback Zack Couse rumble his way down the field for a 34-yard touchdown run, followed by a 20- yard run for a score by Bret Brumfield as Cloverdale entered the half up 26-0.

The second half scoring for the Clovers began with a one-yard touchdown run by Dale at the 7:30 mark as coach Butler toned the attack down until the final frame.

The Clovers tallied another

21 points in the fourth quarter, beginning with a three-yard run for a score by senior Roger Reed at the 11:39 mark. Sophomore Taylor Mescall took the ball 18 yards on a carry to the end zone at the 9:35 mark and senior William Whitinger scored on a one-yard carry with just 10 seconds remaining.

The Clovers (3-7) will take to the road this coming Friday when they travel to North Vermillion to take on the Falcons (5-5).

“People look at records too much. (North Vermillion) has a similar situation as Riverton Parke, they only have one or two seniors on their roster. They run a spread offense so we’re going to come out with a little bit of a different defensive look,” coach Butler explained. “It’s something we tried earlier in the year and we’ve been practicing for the last few weeks in preparation for the tournament. They like to run mesh routes against safeties and flat defenders, so we’ll practice that all week. In terms of our offense, we’re just going to keep doing what we do. We’ll come out and try to out formation the defense, run the ball and try to execute on third downs. We’ll pass the football if we have to; fortunately we are decent at throwing the ball, we’re not great, but we’re able to do it when we need to.”
