The bottom line | The football team played the Kennedy Cougars but lost with a score of 8-52 on Sept. 16 at a home game.

Highlights | 

  • Uriel Ruiz Rios #7, one of the captains, took a blow to the head. This led to a concussion, which caused him to miss the rest of the season.
  • Nathan Velasco #12 scores a touchdown led by his teammate Gideon Dela Torre #22.
  • Cesar Robles-Castillo #64 gave a speech to his teammates in order to motivate the team into playing by their roles, which helped in the second half of the game.

What’s next | The Wolves will take on Verdugo Hills in a home game on Sept. 23.

Team thoughts | “We played our efforts out there, but we weren’t mentally prepared. We are physically prepared, we did our sprints and all our conditioning but I feel like everyone needed more time with their mental game in terms of reading the playbook, and being able to tackle. This was such a winnable game, but the mental aspect of our team isn’t there, not yet at least.” says Gideon Dela Torre, #22.
