Eli Ramirez, who is one of the eighth-grade players, said he thought the game was great. Ramirez is awide receiver for the teams and plays safety on defense.

“I absolutely had fun at our game,” he said.

Ramirez said he thinks the season will go good and hopes to be undefeated. He said the team does need to improve in offense.

Landon Holthaus, another eighth-grade player, had similar thoughts about this season. Halthaus is a wide receiver, cornerback and kicker for the team.

He said he thought the game was good because the team won, but he said the distance to get to Durant made things tougher.

Similarly to Ramirez, Holthaus said he thinks the season is going to go well, but one areas he thinks the team could improve upon is tackling.

Tuesday’s game was the second game of the season for both teams. In the first game on Sept. 3, seventh grade fell to Lawton Tomlinson, while the eighth-grade team won.

The next game is set for Sept. 17 against Elgin at Elgin. Seventh-grade will play at 5 p.m., and eighth-grade will play at 6:30 p.m.
