The AC Flora Junior Varsity Fighting Falcons Football Team loaded themselves up on albino school buses and headed over to Memorial Superdome as the Home Team to take on the Dreher High School Blue Devil Junior Varsity Football Team, Our Friends and Neighbors, in the final joust of the 2017 Junior Varsity Region 5, AAAA South Carolina High School League season, a battle bringing National attention, as it is one of the last games ever played in the Memorial Superdome before its demolition, slated for next week, only to be replaced with a state of the art, open air, Jumbotron laden stadium with working toilets and without a fence between the two concession stand windows.
The Birds we love came to play.
With dominating defense, including a pick six, combined with the rest of the opportunistic defense, along with excellent play calling from Our Crackerjack Coaching Staff, the Falcons won.
The usually dependable Chain Crew disappointed this week, as no one was kicked off or reprimanded for no reason whatsoever, except for passion, and doing something wrong. The Crew has much to live up to, as last year’s crew came in First of One in the polling of Best FootBall Chain Crew At AC Flora High School, Only Including The Guys Who Showed Up.
Its a coveted honor.
This is a great way to end the season. JV boys try just as hard as varsity, and the Cheerleaders remind us all of what we are fighting for. Congratulations on a great win!
Coach Hunter, Coach Drafts, Coach Hiller, and every one else deserved this win, and enjoyed watching The Future Falcons earn this W! Here is a big shout out to Coach Charles Douglas, who was sneaking along the sidelines, and Coach Kurtz who was doing the same!
Here is also a big “Hey, Thanks!” to The Fordham Family for feeding this crowd with only a skeleton crew, and The Koutrakas Family for all they do for Our Boys on the Gridiron.
Mandy McCabe is very special, too, when it comes to Flora Athletics. This Cub Reporter is hoping for a one-on-one interview with this special Falcon Fan!
Edye Blencowe serves as the foundation from which we all soar! Thank you for all you do and have done!
One last thing: Ryan Lail, with his talent and his staff, is a comforting man on the scene when we have a Falcon down. He’s a treasure.
Let’s get those Blue Devils tomorrow night!
