After making a name for themselves at Zion Chapel High School over the last several seasons, LaMarcus and Chris Adair have taken their talents to Brundidge.

The Adair brothers transferred from Zion to Pike County late in the summer, and have had immediate impact for the Bulldogs.

LaMarcus scored two touchdowns against Barbour County, and Chris saw action on special teams and defense.

But Pike County head coach Fred Holland said that the two players have had bigger impact off the field.

“Chris and LaMarcus have been a great addition to our team,” Holland said. “We appreciate what they do for us on the field, but they are even better off. They are both really humble kids, and work hard. They are great teammates to the guys as well.”

LaMarcus played quarterback, running back, receiver and safety during his time in red and black at Zion Chapel. Younger brother Chris saw action at running back, defensive end and linebacker.

Holland said the pair of athletes have provided a spark to his team.

“Whatever you ask them to do, they do it,” said Holland. “They encourage their teammates all the time, and are always telling them ‘Come on, let’s go guys,’ and really keep the energy level up. The bring a tremendous amount of talent, discipline and respect to our team.”

The Adair brothers, and the rest of the Pike County Bulldogs, look for their first region win Friday night against Dale County. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
