LC Youth Football C Team Eyeballing Turf Bowl Appearance At Marshall Stadium;
Little Dawgs On A Mission…
There were lots of smiling faces as the sun set on Luke Varney Memorial Stadium Sunday. That’s because our group of C teamers beat Fairland Ohio 28-14 to advance to the Final Four of the Tri State Youth League.
The Bulldogs rushed for 279 yards on 23 carries led by Caleb May who rushed for a game high 202 yards on 14 carries with 3 Tds ( 36,55,67). Douglas Hall had 12 yards on 3 carries. Zack Holt 3/6, and Alex Strickland 59 yards including a 56 yard TD run in the 4th quarter to seal the game and two 2 point conversions. Caden Gillespie came up with the big interception to close out the game.
Head Coach Heath Preston said “we preach and teach two things to these kids, to be unselfish and (2) its all on them.”
“They have to play no one can do it for them. This team of young boys played with all their hearts today. They want it, you can see it in their eyes. Its a great just to get to watch their desire, let alone coach them.”
