Former Toombs County Bulldog football players Nathan Belch and Jimmy Edwards are getting a lot of playing time and they are making big plays for the St. Andrews Knights in that North Carolina school’s first year of collegiate football.
In a 38-20 home loss to Faulkner University (Montgomery, Alabama) Edwards started at linebacker and Belch entered the game as a safety and scored the Knight’s first touchdown. Belch read the quarterback, jumped up in the air and intercepted his pass and then ran down the sideline for six.
On September 9, Nathan and Jimmy both played in the Knights’ first football home game and victory. St. Andrews ran for 338 yards in a 48-25 victory over Cincinnati Christian. Belch tallied four solo tackles and one assist in the win and Edwards had a solo tackle.
