The Blue Valley freshman football team finished their season at Pittsburgh with record of 9-1 A, and 7-3 B. Freshman Cameron Lee said the team has been working hard since the beginning of summer.
“Every morning from eight to ten, we lifted weights, did football drills, and learned new plays,” he said. “We also did a lot of conditioning.”
The team’s first opponents were the the Gardner-Edgerton Trailblazers.
“We were a little nervous, but when we came on the field, we felt better,” Lee said. Both teams came out victorious.
Lee said although the team didn’t have as many fans as the varsity team, they still had their share of super fans.
“They are amazing, quality athletes,” said freshmen Grant Spicer. Spicer said he attended more than half of the games because he loved both the game and the team. “I went to support our fellow freshmen.”
BV’s A team was one game away from being undefeated, but lost to Bishop Miege On September 17th.
“The hardest thing about the season was having the title of “undefeated” taken from us,” freshmen Carter Moravek said.
Moravek said that the team really bonded throughout the season. “We came together as brothers, more like a family than a team, at certain parts of the season,” he said. “Mostly when we needed it most.”
