Homecoming Game at SDHS
by Coach Hill
In last week’s homecoming game against South Stokes the Wildcats fought a good battle but came up
short losing 33-47 at Briggs Stadium. The coaching staff and I are very proud of these young men. Although we don’t
have a win in the book yet we do have some victories as far as character, respect and accountability goes. These kids have
really grown up this year. They fight hard and don’t quit. Their day is coming on the win. I would also like to thank
the community for the support they have shown these young men at the games. We made a few mistakes Friday night that hurt
us in the end but we also had a bunch of good things happen. We can see the unity of a team happening on and off the field.
Offensively we rushed for over 300 yards again. Damon Hill carried 15 times for 96 yards
and one touchdown. Isaiah Ramsey 20-42 and one touchdown, Keith Davis 9-62, Jacob Gordon 9-46 and two touchdowns, Dylan Pate
4-12 and caught a 10 yard touchdown pass from Hill. Dayton Adkins picked up a bad snap on a punt and had 15 yards, and lineman
Dylan DeLattre caught a bobbled handoff as he was pulling to block and added a 9-yard run. Chris Drye hit 3 of 5 extra points
and defensively, the team was led by Hill.
Everyone contributed on swarming to the ball
and making tackles. Jacob Gordon blocked an extra point attempt and Pate knocked down a pass.
JV will travel to North Stanly on Thursday and varsity will host the Comets at Friday’s community night game. Come
out and support these young men as they go to battle, and support our little league athletes as they are recognized during
halftime of the game.
