October 5th held the last football JV football game of the 2016 season. The Wolfpack demolished Harlem 31-8, bringing their final record to 5-2.

“I’ve been coaching here for eight years, and this is the first season where we [JV football] has gone 5-2,” said Coach Curtis to the team after the game.

The players worked hard since November of 2015 to prepare for this season. Whether it was lifting weights or working on plays the coaches made sure they prepared the players for whatever they might see when they step on the field. With a record like 5-2 the players and coaches would say that their work payed off.

“I think as a coaching staff, we were very satisfied,” says Coach Swain.   “Coming in to the season, we weren’t sure what to expect from our JV since we are playing so many Sophomores on varsity this year. There were some Sophomores and Freshmen who really stepped up in those roles and had a good season for us. It definitely hurt to lose to Lakeside twice in two [very] close games, but we beat everyone else in the county. Anytime you can do that, it is a successful year.”

With most of the JV football team made of Freshmen, one must wonder how the upcoming Freshmen will transition from middle school football to the high school gridiron.

“We were definitely excited coming into the season about the upcoming class,” says Coach Swain.  “Greenbrier Middle went undefeated last year. Riverside was also a pretty good team, so we knew we had some talented kids coming up.

Sophomore quarterback, Justin Meddings was also satisfied with the team’s performance overall.

“Well I think we played well throughout the year,” says Justin.   “But we couldn’t get anything going in the first half of games so we had to make second half surges to win games, which we did.”

Unfortunately JV football games get little support compared to varsity games.

“I wish more people would come to our games,” says Freshmen Michael Poteete.
