Michael Goin (11) had to work his way onto the varsity team, proving himself worthy of varsity status with his reception at Friday’s game.

“[My reception] felt incredible. Not being a full starter, it really helps my chances of getting more playing time,” Goin said.

Goin reveals secrets about the team’s success.

“We watch film of [the opposing teams’] defensive strategies so we can adjust our offense to best fit the look of their defense,” Goin said.

In the fourth quarter, Yancey made his third and final touchdown of the game, giving Lake Central the victory with a final score of 27-7.
