The Dolphins faced the Saints in the Junior Tackle Championship game. The Dolphins shut the Saints out 27-0, to win the Junior Tackle Championship. The win holds a very special meaning for head coach Drew Mayo. He and his older brother, Trevor, played on the Dolphins 10 years ago, their only season to play together on a team. That year, the Dolphins went undefeated and won the city championship. This year, Trevor joined Drew on the sidelines to coach the Dolphins. Seven wins and no losses, they repeated the same feat as coaches as they did as players! Following the championship game, Trevor Mayo said, “It was an honor to be along side my brother, the head coach, and be able to work with such great kids!”
The Dolphins indeed had a phenomenal season, not only going undefeated, but outscoring their opponents 219-33 through seven games.
In the championship game, Jackson Gause led the Dolphins in scoring with four rushing touchdowns. Brady Barber ran in the extra point. Barber found Gause for two points to round out the scoring.
Congratulations from the publisher and staff of the Jackson County Times on winning the city championship and to two fine coaches who insure their players learn more than how to win on the field.
