Hartselle plows Aggies, 34-7

ALBERTVILLE – Some might say the turning point of Friday night's game was the playing of the National Anthem.
Others say it could have come as late as the coin toss.
Whatever the case, the Hartselle Tigers now find themselves in the Class 5A Alabama State Playoffs Semi-finals after traveling to Marshall County and coming away with a 34-7 win over the Albertville Aggies.
When asked if there was anything the Tigers did wrong against Albertville, Mike Smith could think of only one thing.
"I threw the ball when we were knocking them off the line," the head coach said. "That was stupid on my part – I should have never threw it. They were giving us the pass, and my quarterback does a good job throwing, but heck, I should have never threw the ball."
With the way senior Jeremy Orr was running, he may be right.
Orr rushed 30 times for 210 yards and four touchdowns, but he, along with Smith, is quick to pass the praise to the offensive line.
"He's (Orr) a hoss," Smith said. "But, how many times did he run through the line and not get touched?
