Varsity Football won by 44 points against North County high school last Friday, October 5, with a final score of 56 to 12. Student athletes such as Jordan Andrews, who ran 84 yards, and RJ Chandler, who ran 120 yards, played a memorable game.
The game was representative of how most of their season has gone. At 5-1, the Wildcats are cruising.
“I thought the North County game was [us] starting to hit our stride. I was happy the seniors got to have a victory on their homecoming game,” Coach Doy, the team’s offensive coordinator said.
Led by quarterback Austin Slye, whose 177 passing yards last week helped cement a win, the team is getting ready for showdowns in the next two weeks with Annapolis and Chesapeake.
“Kids are having a lot of fun…hopefully [will] lead us into the playoffs,” Coach Walsh, the head coach said. “It was nice to see our players not play down to their opponent.”
Number 12, Austin Slye, said “I think the game was pretty easy, to be honest, and we executed the game plan with great success. For the season, I think we are starting to get a rhythm and we truly have the ability to make a huge run this year. We are playing with a chip on our shoulder because the media refuses to recognize us… but trust me, they will learn!”
