From the colorful student section, to the massive crowd, to the amped up cheerleaders, the team has everything they need to leave with an impressive and motivational win. The Grove started their game against Cherokee Bluff at 7:30pm, and by the time 10:00pm rolled around, the Warriors walked off the field with a spectacular victory of 21-16. (Via Maxpreps )
With October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, there is no doubt those battling breast cancer look forward to being represented by their favorite high school football team. For some players, this game has a special meaning. Reid Fagan elaborated, “A close friend of mine, his mom had breast cancer, it was really hard for the family so I made sure to have her in mind for this game.” Although this wasn’t the only reason he played, “I tried my hardest really just to support people who have gone through a lot with cancer.” Drew Adams also explained, “I played because I wanted to show my breast cancer awareness and how I support it because overall, people go through a bunch of different things and you never know what someone could be going through.”
The Drew and Reid also let the school know how they felt about this win. “I’m really proud of this game, I’m glad that we came back and everybody locked in, but I wish we played like that in the beginning of the game and not just at the end,” Drew shared. Reid said, “Yes I was happy with the game result, I mean we should’ve won by more but it was overall a good win. We just need to play harder next Friday.” When asked how they should play harder, the players immediately shared their two-sense worth. “We really need to focus on continuing to grow, we need to continue to be changed in a better way and just stay focused and stay disciplined,” Reid shared. “The intensity at practice this week needs to be 100%. We need to play very hard every day so we can take that into the game. North Oconee is a fast team so we need to be prepared and be ready to take home a victory,” Drew exclaimed.
The players plan to bring over this victorious energy to their next game, this Friday, October 20th. Make sure to put on your PJs and come support The Grove football at North Oconee High School. They can't do it without you, and the fans' support is the cherry on top that these student athletes need to go home with a victory.
