HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The good times continued to roll for Presbyterian Christian football Friday.

The Bobcats continued their best start in program history with 45-44 triple overtime victory over Madison Ridgeland Academy.

In a game full of big plays, Isaiah Woullard had one of the biggest with a 70-yard run in the third quarter.

“I just…I saw a hole and I just hit it,” Woullard said. "We saw the run and the numbers and decided Woullard should get this week's Academy Sports and Outdoors Player of the Week." 

Bobcats coach Joey Hawkins said, "He's just been tremendous for us. He led the state in rushing last year with over 3,000 yards. He's averaging over 200 a game for us. Had 184 the other night so we couldn't be where we are without Isaiah. He's just a team player and just a great young man."

Woullard said last week's win was a testament to the team.

"It took all of us,” Woullard said. “It was a team effort and it took guts."

Up next for the Bobcats is a home date against Oak Forest Academy. The drive to perfection continues.

Woullard said he and his teammates are taking the historic start in stride.

“It's a great start,” he said. “We're humbled. It's an honor.”
