• Freshman Hawks Stomp Raiders — The SRHS freshman football team got back on track Sept. 27, defeating visiting Glades Central 28-0. The Baby Hawks opened up the playbook and took to the air, with quarterback Dalton Trimble completing two touchdown passes to different receivers. The first went to tight end James Dodge, and the second to the sure hands of wide receiver Keaton Baird. His catch-and-run covered 35 yards, aided by a block from fullback Morgan Roland. This was Baird’s second touchdown grab of the young season. The running attack was led by Derrius Austin, who scored on a sweep of the Glades Central defense and ran in a 2-point conversion as well.
Greg Little then broke the line of the Raiders’ punt team, blocking their attempt and recovering the ball to give the Hawk offense just 25 yards to reach the end zone. That journey was accomplished by the hard running of Joey Schergen and fullback Damian Cruz. Cruz took the ball into the end zone from 4 yards out for the final touchdown, and Morgan Roland ran in a 2-point conversion.
The Seminole Ridge freshman defense shut down everything that Glades Central attempted. When the Raiders tried to run, middle linebackers Josh Minton and Jake Fox came up with hard-hitting tackles.
