The Princeton High School (PHS) freshman football team is on a roll! Although the season is young, the freshman football team has won back-to-back-to-back games, and there are no plans of slowing down anytime soon.
Currently, the freshman football team is 3-0, obtaining wins over Glen Este, Springfield and Lakota East. They are working on a win against Middletown this Saturday, playing in front of a home crowd which will put the odds in their favor.
Freshman head coach Stephen Wade explains what he expects out of his team this season.
“We’re off to a good start, but it’s a long season,” said Wade. “The guys are working hard and their hard work is paying off. However, we just need to focus on the task in front of us. Our goal is to go 1-0 every week and if we accomplish our goal at the end of the season, things will take care of themselves.”
Wade explains what the real “goal” is this season.
“We want to compete for a conference championship,” said Wade. “If we continue to work hard and get better each day, that should set us up for where we want to be at.”
The players on the team have the same vision as Wade. They rely on each other to get the job done.
Thomas Boyd, freshman football player, tells the secret of this success.
“Working as a team,” said Boyd. “We’re not selfish.”
Jaylin Roberson, another freshman football player, thinks the same as Boyd.
“Teamwork,” said Roberson. “It’s as simple as that.”
The freshman football team is excited for this season and they are determined to achieve these goals. We, as a school, are supporting them and are very proud of their effort thus far. As everyone knows, it is a great time to be a Viking! Go Vikes!
