The Morgan County High School (MCHS) JV Football team travelled to East Jackson last Thursday, beating the Panthers 26-6. This was the team’s first away game, and the victory brings their record to 3-2. “We played a very complete game,” said Assistant Coach Aaron Paul, “we were firing on all cylinders and making very few mistakes.” Throughout the game, the defense was able to get a safety, and the special teams blocked an attempted punt by the Panthers. Number 13 Dalton Cole made a rushing touchdown at Quarterback, as did number 30 Jodi McAllister who often plays on both offensive and defensive sides. Cornelius Peterson, number 24, also scored a touchdown for MCHS. Receivers Parker Stone, Blake Nelson, Griffin Jaymes, and Hunter Miseraca all played exceptionally well, and Joel Alcarez made a few key plays throughout the night on the offensive line. Defensively, number 48 Tre Davis, linebacker Paul Guardian, number 85 Jackson Ogeltree, and wide backer Richard Brooks all played very well, aggressively defending for the JV Bulldogs. The MCHS JV team travels to Jefferson this Thursday, and they are focusing on continuing to play at the level they have been playing as well as keeping mistakes and penalties to a minimum. “Jefferson is a very good team from the top to the bottom,” said Coach Paul, “so we are focusing everything on that and doing the best we can to prepare for them.
