9-11-2020 JV Football vs Somerset

"Don't give up, don't ever give up" 

-Jim Valvano 

Due to a last-minute schedule change, the Lytle JV football team traveled up the road to face Somerset. Somerset was a much bigger team with many more players than we had. Our boys, however, welcomed the challenge to take on this 5A team. The boys played extremely well throughout the night. The offense and defense were once again led by Jake Guevara. Mario Diaz had some good strong runs up the middle. The offensive line opened up some nice holes for the running backs to get through and they didn't quit at any point. The defense played well given the circumstances and had no time to game plan against their opponent. They rallied together and showed great determination and grit. Our defense made a lot of great open-field tackles and some nice plays in the secondary. The final score ended up being 42-6 Somerset. Our lone touchdown came on a goal-line run by Jake Guevara, after he intercepted a pass and ran the ball into the red zone. It is a privilege to be able to coach these young men week in and week out! We will continue to work hard and persevere every day!
