TERRIFIC TOUCHDOWN Celebrating, Steve Mavrak, junior, throws his hands up after scoring a touchdown against Lowell.

Football faces Hammond Central in a playoff tonight, maintaining a record of 3-6. With practices adjusted based on the teams the boys face, their main focus has been on individually improving each player’s offense and defense. The team’s two wins and one forfeit game this season were a boost in confidence for them, and has given the boys the straightforward goal of making it to Sectionals and beyond, according to Alec Castillo, junior. Today the boys have their Semi Final Playoffs at Hammond Central High school.

“I think we have a good shot at winning,” Castillo said. “I feel like (the season’s) been going pretty well. My favorite part (of being on the team) has been being able to play with my teammates and having a good time.”
