"The boys did a really outstanding job last Thursday at Commerce," said Coach Kenny Lamb. "I really thought the young student athletes met the goals we set about being better fundamentally. Charlie McCullough and Dawson Maxwell stood out as far as kids up front. Nathan Cuthbertson and Tyler Wilson also did an outstanding job. "It was a great team effort and big win!!
"In the White Team game, Sam Mosby did a great job along with Luke Fontenot. These kids are really improving each week."
