We had a great evening and want to thank everyone who gave of their time, donated items and cash, and just helped to make it a successful fundraiser!
Scorpions Win The Superbowl For The Second Year In A Row! By: Brayden Miller
East Wilkes Middle were the 7th and 8th Superbowl champions of the Blue Ridge Football League. East played the game against Ashe County. This year we had a new coach and we had a new practice schedule. We started practice in April with spring ball, then over the summer we had two workouts a week. Our first game was against Alleghany and that was the only loss we had this year. We had a very good regular season. We were in a three way tie for first place with Ashe and Alleghany. Our first round play off game was against Alleghany and we beat 28-16. During the game, we had 239 rushing yards. Kaden Royal rushed for 135 yards on 10 attempts and caught two passes for 16 yards.
We then moved on to the Superbowl. The last week of practice was one of the best! Everyone's head was in the game and we wanted to show who we are. We won against Ashe with a score of 36-20. We had the best season yet with our group and hope to continue that in years to come. The 8th graders in this group were as follows Zac Helms, Tyler Corona, Kaden Royal, Hayden Phillips, Makinley Norman, Preston Sturgill, Bailey Grubb, Landon Carswell, Alden Kraemer, Tristan Alkire, Brayden Miller, Riley Cannon, Jonathan Hanlin, Chris Carson, Isaiah Edwards, Justin Caudill, Devin Paradis, and Darius Edwards. Our coaching staff was head coach Travis Walker, Assistants Andrew Nance, Quincy Lineberger, Jeff Mickel, Alex Royal, Edgar Cortez, And Cody Lovelace.
