Football FR

In  November, JV and Freshman football teams went 2-0 and 3-0 respectively, with JV winning by an average of 20 points and freshman winning by an average of 34 points.

JV defeated W.T. White 34-0 and defeated Berkner 35-20 at Postell Stadium.

Freshman Gold played only one game in November against W.T. White, ending with a 34-0 victory.

Freshman Blue posted two wins in November, beating Coppell 33-0 and Berkner 35-0. These games marked the end of the season for all three teams. Freshman Blue finished the year 9-1, with its only loss against Bishop Lynch and Freshman Gold finished the season 8-1 with their only loss coming in a close 14-22 game in their season opener against Desoto.

JV finished the year 7-2, with losses to Desoto and Lake Highlands, and a district championship. JV Head Coach Leal credited their district championship to an “explosive offense and a stout defense,” which performed well throughout the season.

At the seasons end, the teams held a banquet and presented awards to the players who showed outstanding achievement throughout the season. These are the award winners for each team.
