The Jags football season kicked off September at home against the Augusta Orioles. This will be the Jags first season under new head coach Derek Tuttle.
“Coach Tuttle is doing some good things that didn’t really happen last year,” junior linebacker and defensive MVP of the game Jacob Rees said. “He’s going to continue to make improvements, it’s his first year so he’s learning too.”
Tuttle was offensive coordinator to previous head coach Tom Audley.
“He can only get better from here,” Rees said.
The Jags beat the Orioles 35-7 and shut them out completely in the second half, this also marks coach Tuttle’s 1st win at home.
“We played really well together for our first game, but there is still a lot we can improve on in practice,” senior wide receiver Matthew Macy said.
The team struggled slightly in the first half but came out strong in the 3rd and 4th quarter.
“We really came together at the half. We finally started to get into the groove of the game and played a lot better,” Rees said.
The team prepared for Augusta all week by studying scouting reports and watching film.
“Learning your opponent before the game is one of the most underrated parts of football. Watching film gave me a good idea of the plays Augusta was going to run against us,” Rees said.
The team watches game film together every Saturday following the game.
“Team film is great because I can see my mistakes and learn from them for next week,” Macy said.
The Jags play Goddard Eisenhower Friday, September 13 away at Goddard.
