Senior running back Bobby Joseph sticks out his arm to break through for a big run.

Returning a kick with his brother on the field, senior Jackson Williams slices through the defense for a big return. Having both brothers on the field is super important to his family because his parents get to watch both their sons every Friday night. “I hope that I can show him how to be apart of a team and how to watch film,” Williams said. “It is amazing being able to be on the same team as my brother cause it is the first time it has ever happened.”
