Zi'Kieria Jones

Friday, Sept. 25ths  game MVPs are Henry Cordona, who had 12 tackles, 1 sack, and 1 tackle for loss, and Luke Stacks who got 10 tackles, 2 tackles for loss, and a 60-yard touchdown run. Nemier “Bubba” Herod had a total of 4 touchdown’s Friday night, 12 carries, and 190 yards.

 Our Lion defense struggled allowing 2 touchdown’s on 4th downs, and our offense had 2 offensive turnovers that allowed Kemp to score.  Coach Donnie Osborn did note that the offense moved the ball well Friday night, but in order to perform better against Malakoff, they will need better execution on both sides of the ball.

 When questioned about the team dynamic, and the effects of the 2020 graduating players, Coach Osborn stated,  “Graduating good players is something we deal with every year. The younger players have to step into these roles and become the guys you can count on.”
