Armwood loses DB Covington for the season

Armwood High sophomore starting cornerback Aaron Covington has been lost for the season after breaking a bone in his left arm in two places during Friday’s night’s 20-16 win over district rival Sickles, defensive coordinator Matt Thompson said.
Thompson said the break to Covington’s arm was rather “freakish,’’ because it came from what looked like a routine tackle and fall to the ground.
‘It (the break) didn’t come from the tackle,’’ Thompson said. ‘‘He just landed wrong on the ground.’‘
If needed, Thompson said Hawks star wide receiver Alvin Bailey could be the starter in Covington’s place this Friday when Armwood takes on district opponent Strawberry Crest. Thompson said Bailey has seen spot duty at the position this season and makes good reads on pass coverage.
Head coach Sean Callahan said he would like to see sophomore Noah Johnson get some playing time at the position. Johnson was a starter at quarterback last season for Armwood’s junior varsity. Johnson has never played corner, but has played safety in youth football.
