The 2019 Jv and freshman football season was rocky. For most of the players it was about learning and growing. Being on the team was less about score and whether they won or lost, but building relationships and producing a team that could work together and trust one another. Once they had built a sturdy relationship with each other they could work together on and off the field.
They learned that being on a team isn’t about the score, its doing what’s best for the team isn’t always what you want to do. It’s important to sacrifice your wants for the greater good of the team. Sophomore, Michael Habegger says, “being part of a team means doing what’s best for the guy next to you, not what you think is best for you.
While off the field the team may have been great, on the field was tough. Out of the whole season they only scored one touchdown, winning one game. Freshman, Christian Fairgood said this, “ we tried our hardest, now all we have to do is come back harder than ever. Thank you to all of our coaches, and senior, you will be missed. Best family ever.”
Overall the 2019 JV and Freshman team may not have been the best, or won many games, they grew as players, and created a family that will be remembered forever. It was a season full of growth, learning, humility, and jokes. When asked about their favorite part of the season sophomore Wyatt Chesebrough talked about the many inside jokes and memories made especially, “we are all out of bubble gum.”
