It is hard to believe that the football season is coming to a close. Our freshman will play @ Mount St Michael Sat at 10 am in their last game. It was very successful season which saw them get out of block slowly. They worked very hard & saw much success on & off the field. Come out & support them in their last game of season. Some players will be asked to move up to JV for playoffs. We will be talking to players this week.
The JV started season with low numbers 24 player, but they have stuck together & worked very hard. in the last couple of weeks they have won 3 out of last 4 with a big win over Nazareth 49-0 last Sat. They have a very good opponent on Sat in Mount St Michael. The JV will be playing in the JV AA playoffs next week. Most likely on the road. Good luck Sat to them.
One of the Varsity's goal this year was to make the AA top playoffs to play for a AA championship. This Sat game could be the road into the top AA playoffs. Coming off a great win vs Nazareth 42-8 . This week the Crusaders face the very tough & fast Mountaineers of Mount St Michael. The Crusaders will need to control ball & keep speedy Mount Offense off the field.
This Sundays game will be last one for our Seniors. The have made us so proud the way they have handled themselves this year. Seniors Mark Maddallo & Chris Giardini seasons have been cut short by injuries, but that has not stopped them from being major contributors to the team all season.
All of our seniors will attend mass & breakfast with parents before game Sunday. It is hard to believe that it's their last game at Stepinac. It seems like they were freshman just a short time ago. We wish the Varsity good luck Sat & in the upcoming playoffs. Lets go win a AA crown. Stepinac has only won two varsity CHSFL football championships in school's history. Let's make history. You can do it !
