Cherokee Youth Football started the season off with a bang. The day consisted of blessed rain but made it difficult for the players and kept our cheerleaders under cover throughout the games.
The flag team had a victory over Lometa 20 to 6.
The team, made up of talented boys and a tough girl took the lead right away. David and K.O. brought in the points with 3 touchdowns and extra points. Brenden, Hank, Randall, Emma, Isaac, Frank, Witt, and Dax all played a major part in pulling flags, blocking, and running yardage. The kids did a great job and played hard.
The tackle team was at a disadvantage with their smaller team of 8 players to the 16 from Santa Anna. They played tough but lost 34-6. Kellen made a touchdown for the team and Lexi caught a kickoff and made some yardage. Uriel toughed out the game with an injured hand and Tori did an excellent job blocking. Carter picked up a fumble and made several tackles. Ethan, Michael and J.D. played a hard game of blocking and tackling Santa Anna’s best players.We are all proud of both teams, they are showing real spirit and learning the game. Keep up the hard work!
The games next Saturday will be in Rochelle.
Flag: 9:00am Cherokee vs. Santa Anna.
Tackle: 2:00pm Cherokee vs. Rochelle.
