Football 09/18/2017

Good afternoon everybody. Good afternoon to all our 12th Monarchs out there in Monarch Nation. Coming off a disappointing loss at home to North Carolina on Saturday. That puts our record at 2-1. Really disheartened with the way the game started. We had such a good crowd, atmosphere; everybody was in to it. I know I was excited, our players were excited.

We had a hold on a big return by Isaiah Harper that would have got us the ball at the 50-yard line. We had a 24-yard punt from Bailey Cate who has been punting like one of the best in the nation.

Defensively, the kids just tried to do too much particularly early in this game. We try to stick with the theme of just do your 1/11th on defense. We did not and that put us in some tough spots. Felt like we played much better about midway through the second quarter. We started to play better football defensively. Denzel Williams was outstandin
