We are now one-third of the way through the high school football season. It has been an exciting season thus far--at all levels.
The Freshman team is doing well. Thursday's game was especially exciting! As the game wound down, the score was tied 20-20. Adrian went for the bomb with 4 seconds left and missed, but alas, there was a pass interference call against our young Mules, so Adrian got another shot with an expired clock. Their QB lofted it toward the end zone, where it was tipped into the hands of "T", who returned it 80 yards for a touchdown and the win. There are a few more gray hairs today among freshmen parents!
JV are also looking strong. They've played 3 tight games, but have managed a winning record. The teams that they have played against certainly know they've been in a battle--this is a VERY physical, hard-hitting group of kids.
Varsity is 1-2, but they have played to the very end in every game, and it has made for some heart-pounding action. The Airport game was disappointing, but the kids NEVER gave up. Saline was a game for the ages! A TD with 44 seconds to go, then the gutsy decision to go for 2 and the win (which was successfully executed!). Good stuff! Last night's game at Adrian was also exciting although our boys couldn't quite pull it off. Take 4 plays away (or even 1 of the 5 turnovers), and the score could have gone the opposite direction. Adrian is a highly ranked team, and people around the state didn't have very high expectations for our boys, but the Mules managed to hang with the Maples until the final seconds. The guts will bring glory. We have faith!
So, here's to the remainder of the season. Good Luck boys. Win or lose, we will always support you--but we think you can win the rest!
