Working out the kinks

These days, the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge is all the rage. It was never more appropriate than on Friday night, when the Tribe washed over Morton’s defense.

“We’re feeling good. We played great. We look great. We’ve got a lot of energy and we’re ready to bring it on,” Quinn Paprocki (12) said.

The home team touched down four times in three offensive sessions with the starters on the field.  Colin Studer (11) and Ethan Darter (11) split time behind center and both tossed a pair of scores. Antwan Davis (12), a featured target, snagged three of those passes.

“This night taught me that if everyone plays together and does their assignments great things happen. I’m going to continue to work hard and push my teammates to be the best,” Davis said.

No score was kept in the scrimmage against the Governors. At this point, the focus is on proper preparation for opening night, which promises to be a spectacle. The Indians have a little something up their sleeve for the Munster matchup.

“I can’t wait for Friday, [Aug. 22]. We’ve got some payback planned. When we step between the white lines, we are enemies,” Kenneth Singleton (12) said.

Friday’s game will feature a Hawaiian/beach theme. Kick-off will be at 7 p.m. at the Burial Grounds.
