The football team finished up all their regular season home games. The team lost against Hobart last Friday, with a score of 35-0. As of now, the season record is 3-7.

“For me, this season has had its ups and downs on defense this year, but offensively I feel like I have improved a lot,” Joeseph Bartusiak, junior, said. “The team gets along really well which helps us work better together. We continue to get better and better as the season goes on.”

Cristian Silva, junior, said that this season has been much better than the last, and expressed that the team put up some good fights each game.

“I had a strip sack my very first varsity game,” Silva said. “Also, our quarterback Prieboy ran through tons of people this season. It was a fun time.”

The team is now focused on their first Sectional game next Friday against Merrillville.

“This week is our bye week to prepare for the Sectionals,” Silva said. “We are probably going to scan Merriville’s defensive and offensive formations with conditioning, and find cracks in it that we can use.”
