Jacob Crowe and Gavin Kight each had 7 tackles. Hayden Hurst had 6 tackles and Jacob Oliver, Dean Sheffield and Hunter Knox each recorded 5 tackles in the win.
Head Coach, Jason Allen, commented “I have been very impressed with how our JV has played through their first two games. They have played really fast and they will hit you. Our offensive and defensive lines have been playing really well and dominating up front. You can tell our kids have been playing in the same system for some time now as we are confident in our assignments and it’s showing on the field.”
The JV Rebels will travel to Kingwood in Alabaster on Tuesday, September 5th, to take on the Lions. Pee Wee will begin at 6:00 with JV action following at 7:00.
