Garner Football

The 8th Grade Garner Yearlings have recently had their first football game in the rain against Wood Middle school this past Tuesday. The rain, like the Yearlings, came down on the opposing team without warning. The A team came down with a win of over 16 points, but the B team wasn’t as successful. While without a win, their strong defensive line stopped Wood from scoring in a 0-0 tie. The weather was an issue, but not for Garner. Although the ball was slippery, the A team did not make one fumble and powered through the rain for the win.

this is the Garner blue team at practice

Garner may not look like their doing well but it’s only the 4th week of school. They can do great with the help of their best players, Charles Henerson the quarter back, and Marshawn Anderson the running back

Also, with the help of  staying healthy, passing their classes, and hard work they could do anything. With that strength, thy can win their next game on tuesday here at Garner and all he other games.

“Our  Biggest competition would be Driscoll,” coach Melendez said. But they may not be a very hard team to beat with hard work and team work combined and we could possibly win first place in this foot ball season.

Cade Sheeran says ” I think we will win all our games.”

Good luck and conteniue the hard work Yearlings.
