Last Friday, September 24, 2021, the Lytle Pirates faced the Marion Bulldogs in our first game of District play. Offensively, we saw significant improvement, especially on the ground, as our offensive backfield, led by Deven Caldera, Brandon Adkins, Albert Aguilar and Luke Estrada rushed for 181 yards against a tough Marion defense. Up front, our offensive line, consisting of Elijiah Ramirez, Ivan Reyna, Kasen Boyd, Jacob Guevara and Cecil Olivarri paved the way for our offense to have the best rushing performance of the season.
Our defensive standouts of the game were Senior Linebacker JP Del Toro, who led the team with 7 total tackles, Junior Safety Albert Aguilar, with 5 total tackles, and Senior Cornerback Diego Rangel with 3 total tackles and 2 forced fumbles.
Our kids continue to improve and play with significant effort. Although it was not the outcome we wanted, our staff is extremely proud of our players. Thank you for your continued support of Pirate Football!
