On Friday, September 8th, the varsity football team fought but came up short at 38-7 against Cedar Park.

The team consists of 68 players including 42 seniors, 21 juniors and five sophomores. Although there are a large number of players, seniors especially, each player brings something to the table to make the team better as a whole.

“Being a senior on varsity is a true honor,” senior Peyton Ausley said. “It shows dedication to the program for the last four years. This year, since we are seniors, we can bring a culture to the team and make it the way we want to be.”

There are a number of players committed to play at a college level, getting scouted by schools like Kansas State, and to Ivy League schools such as Harvard and Princeton.

“Seeing some of my teammates get scouted is a really interesting experience,” junior Drew Nelson said. “It opens your eyes to what college talent is like, and it also pushes us to become a better players.”

For some players though, this “varsity life style” isn’t what they are used to.

“Being on varsity is a lot different than being on JV,” junior Ryan Merrifield said. “Play calling and game preparation is a lot more intricate, and the team feels more like family.  Every day we build a stronger bond with our coaches and teammates.”

This Thursday, the team will play Killeen at Leo Buckley Stadium.
