Hall picked up a team best 153 yards on 19 carries. He scored one touchdown and averaged 8.1 yards per carry for coach Brad Bland. Hall further helped the WL offense with a 30-yard punt return. As a defensive back, he made five tackles and broke up two passes for the Bears.

It was a career night for West Lincoln sophomore linebacker Brody Dillon against Salem in a 40-26 win for the Bears.
Lining up as an outside backer in the 4-3 defensive alignment used by West Lincoln, Dillon was quick to the football all game in making a team best 17 tackles. Dillon, who also wears the number 17, was in on one tackle for a loss and one sack for coach Brad Bland and his staff.
Dillon and the Bears are on the road this Friday when they make the drive across the county to take on the Enterprise Yellow Jackets.
