I was really pleased with the effort in Friday's game against Rochelle. I was a little worried before the game about taking care of the ball because of the rain and saturated field, but we handled the ball well and kept it secured. I was really pleased with our defensive performance. Number 10, Rance Railsback, did a fantastic job getting pressure up the middle and even caused and recovered a couple fumbles. Number 4 Jayton Perry took care of business sealing the outside and he had some good hits in the game. Alex Crowder, number 2, had an interception at the beginning of the game that got the team fired up and, other than the lightning delay, we didn't let off the gas until the game was over.
Offensively we performed well. I would have liked to see a better job blocking in tight formations but overall we ran the ball effectively. Rochelle had a hard time keeping up with our 4 running backs, number 2 Alex Crowder, number 13 Cody Robertson, number 1 Trevor Evens, and Number 5 Jaxson Diggs. We rotated our backs to keep them fresh and our backfield responded wanting to take advantage of every opportunity to carry the ball. Number 4 Jayton Perry also caught a few passes to keep some drives going including a nice touchdown grab.
