Varsity football beat Garland last Friday 21-19 in the annual Homecoming game making it the first time since 2014 the team won more than one game in a season.

“It’s awesome – we won one game last year, and it’s huge now that we’ve won two games in a row, and I love it,” senior quarterback Logan Sawyer said. “It’s a ton of momentum going into district, and we’ve got a bye-week next up, and we need to get rested and get ready for W.T. White.”

Sawyer threw for 216 yards and three touchdowns to junior receiver Sammy Berry who caught two, and senior Abdul Khallif with one.

After giving up one or more turnovers in previous games, coaches placed more emphasis on ball security, then didn’t give up the ball at all against Garland.

“For us its a simple component to win football games – you’ve got to be a physical team, and you got to take care of the football,” Head Coach Greg Pels said.

The defense made a statement with senior Thomas Savage making two sacks, three tackles for loss, and 17 tackles total. Defensive back senior Coriek Fileds recorded the lone interception of the game.

Savage said there is still room for improvement.

“We need to work on our tackling, physicality, and just pure effort – we’ve been getting better every week, and we’re gonna get there,” he said.
