Kendrick - Junior Varsity Football
October 1, 2013Kendrick High School
After starting the season 3 - 0, with wins over Hardaway, Columbus, and Spencer. The Kendrick Junior Varsity Football team high had high hopes going into their game vs Northside's JV last Wednesday. It was a great game...as JV games go with plenty of drama involved.
The Cherokees spotted NS 6 points in the first and played from behind the entire game. In the second half with only 2 mins remaining in the game and down 18-14, JV DC - Art Thomason said, "I told the kids to strip the ball and give our offense a chance to win". And that's exactly what happened! The JV Cherokees lead by Coach Parrish Bailey marched down the field coming up just short of the endzone before time expired.
Bailey and Thomason expressed appreciation for the effort the kids displayed in the loss, especially from from Sophmore running back - Tyrell Smith. Coach Bailey said, "this kid is something special to watch running the football". Smith also plays on the varisty team with limited carries at the running back position, but as he continues to shine on JV his future looks bright as the future standout for The Cherokees.
The JV Football team will play at Carver, Wed Oct 2, at 5pm.
