The football team had a successful season this year by ending their 5 year losing streak and winning 3 games this season. The last time the Generals finished with three wins was 2014. They also improved their size this season being able to have a JV team. When they did the draft for sectionals they pulled Providence High school.
“ Providence was the best team in the draft so drafting them was bad for our team. They recently lost their quarterback though and that gives us some advantages but we’re going to try our hardest and play our game,” said freshman Robert Lamar. Lamar is an important part of the team as a freshman. Lamar has four touchdowns for the season and averages 105 yards per game.
“I think we’ll do good in sectionals if we win the first game against providence. I think we will we’ll make it to the championship and it’ll be a good game in the championship,” said senior Clayton Aranda. Aranda averages nine tackles a game and has ten points for the season.
The Generals will play Providence at 7:00 at home on October 25. The game costs six dollars per person and athletic passes are not valid because it is an IHSAA event.
