John Milledge Academy looking to move forward after back-to-back semi-final losses
“It’s tough,” Coach Wall said about last year’s post-season loss to Memorial Day, “but it gives these guys a lot to look forward to and try to overcome what we hadn’t been able to the last two years.”
Wall hopes the offense, which scored over 33 points per game, can carry over and continue to put points up on the board for 2014, “You know, if we score 7 and they score 6, that’s enough,” Wall said.
The Trojans will have starting quarterback Colby McCommon returning, who Coach Wall says is a threat to run as well as throw, along with a bevy of experienced seniors on both sides of the ball.
Not only did the Trojans score, but they made sure their opponents didn’t, getting 3 shutouts and holding the opposition to less than 10 points in 9 games. In order to maintain their defensive prowess, Wall is already preaching defensive responsibility during the summer, and will be doing so again once camp starts.
The Trojans begin their season on August 22nd against Trinity Christian. Their first home game will be on September 5th, versus Bethlehem Christian Academy.
