Ground and Pound Football Taking Over
The Varsity football team traveled to Austin on Friday for their first road test of the season as they played East Austin Prep. The Vikings came in confident after tasting success the first game of the season. The Vikings wasted little time, picking up right where they left off last Saturday. After the first quarter, the Vikings led 12-0 on a pair of rushing TD’s by Senior running back, Draylyn D. The second quarter busted this game wide open. Draylyn D got loose for 3 more rushing TD’s, putting the Vikings in front at halftime, 36-0! Draylyn set a new school record for rushing touchdowns in a single game, but he only needed one half to do it! Impressive display! The defense was lights out, forcing turnovers, getting stops, and giving the ball right back to their offense. The Vikings controlled the ball and clock in the second half. Quarterback, Lewis H, capped off another touchdown drive after throwing to Senior wide receiver, Earl W for another Viking touchdown. Last but not least, the Vikings pounded in another rushing touchdown, only this time it was from Senior, Dami O. The Vikings controlled the ball with their relentless, “Ground and Pound,” attack. This team has a clear identity, they are disciplined, and they are focused. Promising combination from a team and coaching staff that is delivering. Great job boys! The Vikings next game is another away contest. Kickoff is at 7:00pm on Friday, September 11th at KIPP Generations. Come out and support your Vikings who are looking to start 3-0 for the first time in school history!
