JV football looking for first win
The junior varsity football team is looking to claim its first victory Saturday against the run heavy Martinsville Artesians.
Two weeks ago, the Woodmen fell to Perry Meridian in overtime, and then last Saturday faced Indian Creek’s young, junior varsity squad, losing 22-6.
“Indian Creek didn’t really have a JV team. Their players were mostly freshmen, so we threw in ours. It was a great learning experience for our younger players to get better,” Coach Brad Clarke said.
Martinsville is known for their run game this year, and juniors Logan Roddy and Cameron Bridges are looking to stop it.
“We are a young team; we’re getting better every day. My job is to help the younger guys improve and to keep them focused. I think if we keep working hard, we will be able to get the job done Saturday,” Roddy said.
Coach Clarke said the JV team has a bunch of young talent that could be playing on varsity soon.
“Cole Raker was the first to come out of JV and start at center last Friday against Indian Creek. He played really well. Dillon Cloyd and Nolan Miller are playing real well right now that they could be on varsity here soon,” Clarke said.
This Saturday will be a glimpse into the future of the Woodman football program. It will also be a test for most of the players looking to get the call up to varsity.
“I’m looking to continuously get better every day. This Saturday I just hope to play to the best of my ability,” Bridges said.
