It looks like for the Jr High Hackett Hornets that history really does repeat itself. And in this case, that’s a good thing. Last year, Jr High went undefeated 7-0 in their football season and by the way things are looking, it doesn’t seem too far fetched to say they just might acquire the same outcome again this year. With wins against Mansfield and most recently their 26-16 victory against Heavener, the Hornets are already sitting undefeated 2-0.
“The team looked great against Heavener,” says Jr High Coach, Jordan Shelby. “They played really well as a team.” Offensive leaders for the Hornets were Cole Ketchum and Nate Gordon, bringing in two touchdowns each. Tyler Pittman had an outstanding game on defense with his multiple over the top takedowns.
“I was really happy with the way we played. We really flew to the ball on defense and the offensive line did great opening holes for our backs.” The Jr High Hackett Hornets will be able to rest up and continue perfecting their football skills as they sit in a bye week. The team will get back to business on September 19 when they will face JC Westside at home.
