Yesterday afternoon, September 7th, 2023, the 7th grade football team kicked off their season against the Navarro Panthers. We, coaches, usually get to see our young football players grow up throughout the season. It is always satisfying in Week 10 to remember how young and naïve they were at the first game. Well, we got a season’s worth in 1 game. In the first half, this team had a “deer in the headlights” look about them. In the second half, they looked like bona fide football players. It’s a great group of boys and we are looking forward to the rest of the season. Yesterday’s game was in a scrimmage format.
