This year’s football team is the first ever freshman football team to finish the season undefeated.

The team played many different teams this year leaving them unsure about their competition and how the outcome of the season would occur.

“I really didn’t know because we started in a new league, we went to the Mid-Penn. We haven’t played those teams for years, so I wasn’t sure how the season would play out,” freshman team coach Damon Luciano said.

The team’s biggest competitors were Cumberland Valley, and their biggest rival was Hollidaysburg.

Going into the season both quarterback, Aidan Steinbugl and linebacker, Ethan Stroup had doubts about how the season would end.

“If I am being honest, I didn’t think we would be undefeated, but I knew we would have a successful season,” Steinbugl said.

“The coaches really scared us with the teams we were going to play,” Stroup said.

There are many things that helped lead the team to have a lot of  success this season, but Steinbugl believes it had to do with the leaders.

“The leadership is what lead this team to success; if one person got down then the rest of the team would be there to pick them up, ” Steinbugl said.

“Aidan Steinbugl, Stroup, Taborn, Dokes and Lucas Hileman were all major contributors to the offense,” Luciano said.

The team did a lot of preparing for the season as well.

“We started in June getting stronger and learning the plays earlier to get an advantage for the season,” Steinbugl said.

Coach Luciano hopes to see the the freshman players go on to help out the high school team next year.

    I think this is a great written article that emphasizes achievements made by the freshman football team this year involving the season and the switch of leagues. It had amazing AP style and great quotes that covered the topic.
