The freshman team had one of their biggest turnouts in recent years and had to travel a lot to find competition but they held their ground all season.
“It is a lot easier than I thought it would be but it’s also more challenging in some aspects,” said Jacob Smith.
Coach Scott Santos thinks coaching freshmen can be demanding but this class was different as they willingly adjusted to new positions.
“This provided for a positive environment within the freshman program that is critical to help them prepare for JV football,” said Santos. “I hope that these players maintain such positive attitudes as their roles will likely continue to change as they develop physically over the next few years.”
Jonathan Moser is excited to continue playing.
“I’m looking forward to being better on offense and actually catching my passes,” said Moser. “As a team, we’ve done well on defending runs and being able to guard against special teams.”
Santos was impressed with his student-athletes.
“Working with a group of student-athletes that also take pride in their education was the highlight of the season for me,” said Santos.
