Improving Seahawks fall to Wewahitchka

Published: Thursday, October 3, 2013 at 12:04 PM.

The Seahawks managed to make it a game in the third quarter with two TDs, as sophomore fullback Trenton Lee scored on a 7-yard run, and senior quarterback Logan McLeod on a 4-yard run, to make it 33-14. Sophomore Walker DeVaughn kicked both extra points.

Lee was the game’s leading rusher with 25 carries for 116 yards. Junior Cole Wheeler tallied 15 rushes for 85 yards, while McLeod was 4-for-11 from the air, with three interceptions. He also had one interception as a defensive back.

“One thing I was very happy about we did a very good job with special teams. We ran for over 120 yards on kickoff returns,” said York.

Senior Alex Causey had four returns for 72 yards, while Wheeler had three returns for 50 yards.

“We look back between the last time we played Wewa in August and we’ve made tremendous strides. We judge each week if we got better or not and this ought to tell you we’re getting better,” he said.

The team travels to Port St. Joe Friday to take on their rivals to the west.

“My guys will be ready,” said York. “The kids are practicing hard every day. There’s no quit in these kids. It’s every day that they come out. They’re working hard in the weight room. We have 23 kids out there; I couldn’t ask for a better group.”
