The varsity football team won last week’s game against the Mountain View bears 41-14 on October 25.

Parker Wroble, 12, a running back on the team, explained the importance of the game.

“Honestly, it was more of a big game for them. They’ve only beat Mill Creek two times in school history. They were talking all that nonsense on social media, so we just came in and showed them how much better we really are. Within the first half, they got quiet and couldn’t do anything to stop us,” Wroble said.

Head Coach Josh Lovelady was pleased with the boys’ performance.

‘“We felt like Chancellor [Lee-Parker], [Wroble], and the offensive line did an outstanding job mixing it up in there, as well as the quarterback [Thurman Harris] running the ball. [Harris] had a big night. He had his best game all year long. I think it’s a culmination of him growing it up and all the hard work he’s put in,”’ Lovelady told The Gwinnett Daily Post.

These athletes, along with several others, showed their abilities in the game.

According to The Gwinnett Daily Post, “[Parker] rushed 23 times for 213 yards and five touchdowns. Harris rushed nine times for 68 yards, including seven carries for 49 yards as the Hawks built a 20-7 halftime lead. He also threw for 95 yards with a 43-yarder to Khamari Glover to set up a score.”
