With a young inexperienced JV team, it wasn’t known what to expect once the season started, but the young Hawks started the season off on the right foot by defeating FAMU 22-12 last week.
And to top it off the boys got to play at Bragg Memorial Stadium which is the home stadium for the college Rattlers.
"These young guys have bought in," said coach Brock Johnson. "They listen and are willing to learn. We put a lot of information on them in just one week of practice but they soaked it in and played really well."
Larry Winchester led the way on offense with 13 carries for 105 yards and a TD, Winchester also had eight tackles on defense and an interception.
Dylan Perry had 55 yards rushing on one drive to put the game out of reach. Weston Bockelman had 40 yards rushing and almost returned an interception for a TD.
Josh Yancey led the way on defense with 12 tackles. Tre Jones also had a receiving touchdown.
"Several kids played a big part in this game, it was a total team victory. Our line completely dominated from start to finish. We're proud of them as a coaching staff but there's still a lot of work left."
The next JV game will be Thursday, August 30 vs Wakulla at home
