ACCHS senior Kieran Courter stiff arms a Pleasant Ridge defender in Effingham.

Atchison County Community High School Football cruised to its third victory of the season with a 58-0 drubbing of McLouth Friday to celebrate homecoming.

After being named Homecoming King before kickoff, senior Kieran Courter followed up with a five-touchdown performance.

Courter had a total of six total touches for 131 yards and three offensive scores, along with an 83-yard kickoff and a 50-yard punt return for touchdowns.

Head coach Alex Thornburgh said what Courter is capable of on the field is pretty remarkable.

“I thought Kieran played great Friday night, he’s a kid who is playing with a lot of confidence and it’s showing with his performance on the field,” Thornburgh said. “It’s pretty rare to see a kid run for a touchdown, catch a touchdown, return a punt and a kick off for a score, and kick the extra points.”

The Tigers will take on Nemaha Central on the road this Friday night.
