Varsity football team is a young one

After losing 29 seniors at the end of last season, the varsity football team looked to rebuild this season with a new group of seniors and 10  sophomore players.

It has been an adjustment for the youngest players, who were playing freshman football just a year earlier.

“The stakes are higher and you have to play to the best of your ability at all times,” sophomore quarterback Daniel Bresko said.

To these young players, the atmosphere of playing under the lights at big stadiums like Turner Field is unforgettable.

“Getting the chance to represent my school, playing for all my teammates and our fans is something I won’t ever take for granted,” sophomore safety Evan Perilloux said.

Playing at a different level has had positive effects on the sophomores.

“Playing on varsity has increased my character and leadership skills no doubt,” Bresko said.

The thought of playing with older players might seem intimidating for some but these sophomores love it.

“It’s a pretty good feeling knowing you can compete at the varsity level with other players who are older than you,” Perilloux said.
