The Future Looks Bright for Tiger Football
The future of Tiger Football is looking better than ever after the completion of the JV and Freshman football seasons. Both teams finished the year with unblemished records – a combined 20-0 record.
The JV team had impressive victories over Male, Moeller, Trinity, and capped off the season with a 35-21 win over DeSales. The JV offense was especially potent. Led by quarterback Keegan Sullivan, the offense averaged 34.4 points per game. Sullivan had a slew of weapons including wide receiver Brycen Harkins (14 touchdowns on the year) and runningbacks Aric Lyons and Anthony Moretti. The JV defense was just as stellar, led by linebacker Patrick Owen and safety Sam Boarman, allowing an average of only 13.7 points per game.
The Freshman team dominated almost every single team they played, winning by an average of 21.3 points per game. The Baby Bengals closed the season with a brutal stretch of six games over fourteen days. Quarterback Douglas Bodhaine, runningback Logan Davis, and center Turner Farris led the way for the offense. On the other side of the ball, safety Jake D’Antoni and defensive lineman Totoy Ilagen and Harrison Weis proved to be standouts. Defensive back and return man James Taylor proved to be a valuable all-around athlete for the team as well.
This is an absolutely amazing accomplishment by the Tiger Football program from top to bottom. The JV and freshman players have made a huge leap for the program and everyone is extremely proud of the way they have played.
A few sophomores have already begun to make their contribution on the varsity level, and the way they played as a whole this season, it seems that many underclassmen are poised to make an impact next season. As the Varsity team heads into the playoffs, many of the sophomores, and possibly a few freshman will dress for the team. The play of both respective teams just goes to show that St.X Football will maintain athletic excellence for years to come.
