The Redhawk football team did not come out on top on Thursday, falling 38-13 to the Centennial Titians in their 8th game of their District 6-5A Division I season.

“We had one of our better weeks of preparation, and the guys were really focused on the game,” head football coach Matt Swinnea said. “I know the seniors in particular feel the pressure to win some games, and they are running out of opportunities.”

But on Thursday, Centennial wasn’t the Redhawks biggest opponent according to sophomore Jacob Nickel as the team had three turnovers. 

“Centennial was an ok team, and we struggled against them,” Nickell said. “But we struggled against ourselves more. We continued to turn the ball over, and were very hard on ourselves during the game.”

But coach Swinnea has high hopes for the team as they get ready to take on Lebanon Trail in the Redhawks next game.

“They are in a similar predicament record-wise, and we know they will give us their best,” Swinnea said. “If we take care of doing our jobs with relentless effort, we have a great opportunity. I really want this to be a great outcome for the team.”
