The Centennial Eagles JV football team was prepared to end their trying season with one final home game on October 27 at 7pm. Confidently stepping onto the field, the Eagles played with great heart against Hammond High School.
Due to their perseverance and determination until the last second, the Eagles ended the season with one win, beating Hammond by 14 points, with the final score being 27-12. Touchdowns on Centennial’s part were scored by Justice Murrell, Anthony Mathews, and Sihier Coleman.
Due to having to dismantle the varsity football program at Centennial, the JV football team had many adjustments to make, and many saw ending the season with a win as vital in boosting the esteem of the team.
The Eagles are optimistic about the future of the program and the 2018-2019 season for both JV and varsity programs. After a season of dedication and persistence the Eagles will end their season 1-8.
