The Sneads junior varsity football team completed their season last Thursday with a 33-0 shutout of the Chipley Tigers. Fans in Jackson County know well it’s always great to beat the neighboring Tigers in any sport and none was more special than this one. It competed a perfect season for them.
Ric Reed found the endzone and put the first points on the board in the second quarter of play to put Sneads in the lead. That score held till the halfway mark in the game.
Things took a turn for the better following the halftime break with Sneads adding another pair of touchdowns. Reed tacked on two more touchdowns in the third quarter making it a 19-0, thanks to Anthony Moran kicking it right through the uprights on one of those touchdowns.
In the fourth quarter, Donte’ Holden joined the scoring parade with a touchdown of his own with Reed adding his fourth on the night. Two more kicks through the uprights by Anthony Moran and Sneads had a commanding 33-0 win, solidifying their undefeated season.
Following the game, a very happy coach Charles Kent summed it up in short rather quickly, “WOW! I am so proud of our guys. They grew up over the last few months. Our guys have built character and overcome adversity at times. To have an undefeated season makes all of coaches feel really good, it makes us feel like our guys bought in to what we were teaching them and that they trusted in us.”
Sneads finished the season with 20 players and three coaches.
Congratulations to the Sneads junior varsity football team, their coaches, and Sneads High School from the publisher and staff of the Jackson County TIMES!
