STMS Football Program Continues to Impress

The 7th Grade football team celebrates after their championship win.

Saluda Trail is known for having one of the best football programs in the area, bringing home titles almost every year. This year was no different. Both 7th and 8th grade football teams had outstanding seasons this school year with both teams going undefeated during their regular season.  The 7th grade team even went on to clinch the championship. Unfortunately, the 8th grade team’s winning streak came to an end. The team lost their championship game, falling short by 2 points to Sullivan Middle School.

S J Culp, a member of the team said although he was “happy” with way the season went, there’s always room for improvemnt. “I felt like we could have done better,” Culp said.

Coach Denio, the 7th grade football coach, said his team worked very hard this season. He named several things that the team did well as a whole, as  well as pointed out some individual players. Some of the star players on the 7th Grade Team were Carson Moore, Christian Hunt and Caiden Cathcart, he said.

“We had some very fast players this year,” he said.  “I think that Rylan Brooks is the fastest player.”  Coach Denio said one of the hardest working players on the team was Caiden Cathcart.

Coach Dunham, the 8th grade football coach and athletic director said there were some very good players on his team as well.

“The MVP  award is split between Joshua Joseph or Jake Mitchell,” said coach Dunham.  He also spotlighted Willy Dye.  “Hands down Willy Dye has the most respect,” said coach Dunham of the eight grade team.

Coach Dunham said his team worked hard. “I would say even though we fell a little short in the championship with a small group of guys, it’s about                                          growth,” said Coach Dunham.

Although, they did not win their championship game, the 8th grade football team had a great season.
