Football Team Stages a Comeback

After a difficult start to the season, the Wildcats show their ability to learn and grow before bouncing back.

The offensive Coordinator, Benjamin Kabzinski, speaks about the team.

“I think it has been a good learning experience for the team,” said Kabzinski, “I think they are seeing what they need to improve on and it has opened our eyes on what we needed to do more as a team and we can move forward from that.” 

 After last year’s season, the loss of many seniors caused an upset in the Wildcats’ offensive tactics. 

The season started with great efforts as Rockbridge began to rebuild their offense and dominate the field. These efforts are shown through their ability to gain yards and set a tone for the opposing team early on. As the season progresses, this hard work from the players will show through touchdowns and victories over teams.   

Kabzinski was asked if he focuses more on defense or offense during games. 

¨I focus more on offense,” said Kabzinski, “Our execution really is something we need to work on. It all starts with the little things and we just have to go back to the little things because they make us better.” 

Junior Brady Edwards, a varsity football player, was asked about his junior season on the team.

“This year, I have learned that mentality can play a major role in the game of football,” said Edwards. 

 The Wildcats have shown discipline and their strong mentality by never giving up. Mentality in all sports is very important and dictates how you will play in a game, and how you affect your team. One who has a bad mentality will bring down the team, and disrupt the normal play.

Junior Kyle Knick speaks about the dynamics of the football team. 

“The most important aspect is breaking down and tackling,” said Knick, “We are all working hard to turn the season around.”  

Rockbridge’s past games displayed  a strong mentality by never giving up and standing up to the challenge. This has set a tone for future games to come, meaning Rockbridge will be challenged but will put up a good fight in upcoming games. 

 The Wildcats have learned what they need to change and work on from past games, and can now figure out how to set themselves up to be flawless and win upcoming games. The football team will continue to  have a strong mentality in upcoming games.
