9-21-2022 Pirate Football Legacy Bowl
Last Friday, September 16, 2022, the Pirate football team faced Natalia in the annual Legacy Bowl. It was a tough, physical contest for our team, but one of the many things that makes our coaching staff proud is how hard our teams plays, regardless of the score. Our players and coaching staff have committed to where our program is headed and we are already ahead of where we were a year ago. We refuse to give up and know that, with hard work, commitment and a willingness to work for the teammate and coach beside us, success will come. It already has. We have experienced triumph and loss, and through it all, our kids continue to prepare and “fight the good fight!” We are approaching the midpoint of our season and have made great strides, offensively, defensively and on special teams. Our coaching staff and players have been working hard, both in the classroom and on the field, and we can assure our Pirate Family that great days are ahead when you look at the Faith and Heart of our team.
Offensive standouts include Freshman Quarterback Toby Davila, (10/27 Passing – 158 yards), who was named the Legacy Bowl Offensive Player of the game for Lytle. We would also like to recognize Senior Quarterback and Wide Receiver Connor Martin (2 Receptions for 33 Yards), Junior Wide Receiver Rudy Cepeda (3 Receptions for 108 Yards) and Junior Running Back and Wide Receiver Amadeus Trejo-Perez (1 Reception for 16 Yards) as well, on the offensive side of the ball. Up front on the offensive line, Sophomore William Davalos, Sophomore Damien Ramon, Junior Hector Anaya and Senior Damien Myers continue to improve every week. Defensive Standouts include Senior Defensive Back Albert Aguilar (12 Solo Tackles, 4 Assists, 1 Forced Fumble), who was named the Legacy Bowl Defensive Player of the game for Lytle. We would also like to recognize Junior Linebacker Anthony Perdomo (7 Solo Tackles, 4 Assists), Senior Linebacker Roland Cordova (3 Solo Tackles, 2 Assists), Junior Outside Linebacker and Defensive End Drew Gonzales (4 Solo Tackles, 1 Assist, 1 Tackle for Loss, 1 Quarterback Sack) and Junior Defensive Lineman Jake Guevara (3 Solo Tackles, 2 Assists, 1 Quarterback Sack) as well, on the defensive side of the ball.
