Trojans go to playoffs – 2016

Playoffs kick off this Friday. The football team will travel to Fort Frye for its first playoff game, looking for success so it can extend its season and its 8-2 record. The seniors have had much experience in the playoffs since this will be their third time going.

Senior wide receiver and middle linebacker Michael Collins said members of the senior class are excited about their third playoff experience.

“It’s great to know that we have made history by making it to the playoffs,” Collins said, “but just getting there isn’t enough; we expect to do some damage.”

Players have been preparing themselves for the battle against Fort Frye, who is undefeated (10-0), they have been preparing on the field and in film sessions.

Junior wide receiver Trey Purdy said that the hard work in the off season and in the gym is paying off.

“I think the team has performed well this season; we had our ups and downs but we fought through them and began to get better and better each week as a team,” Purdy said. “We have been at it for about 9 months now on the field and in the gym.”

The football team showed excellence in its dominating performance against the East Knox Bulldogs Oct. 28 at home. The team extended its impressive record to 8-2 with its 41-0 win over the Bulldogs. The team hopes to bring the same perfection to its first playoff game.
