Friday Night Lights Come To An End

On October 27, 2023 Findlay High School’s exciting playoff games will begin. FHS’s varisty football team will be playing against Olentangy Liberty Benton High School.

This Friday Findlay High School has a good chance of winning. Findlay’s varsity football team currently has eight wins and only two losses. The varsity team head coach, coach Adams, is confident about the performance of his players.

“The kids have worked hard all year. I feel really good about how the kids will perform. They are excited and have had a good week of practice,” varsity head coach Adams said.

The players are excited for this nerve wracking game. The playoffs are some of the most important games of the season. Which could cause some nervousness for the players.

“To be honest I am nervous, but I’m sure once it’s game time it will go away. I believe we will win and advance to the next round, but honestly, we gotta go out there and play our game,” Senior CJ Reid-Tisdale said.

FHS’s football team will take whatever happens with a grain of salt. The team has been working hard and focusing on all of the details and will do whatever it takes to win.

“The name of the game is to win, and we plan on doing all of the little things it takes to win this football game,” Varsity head coach Adams said.

“I know our defense is going to show up and show out all game like we have all season. Same thing from the offense, they are going to dominate and put us up in points and do what they do,” Senior CJ Reid-Tisdale said.

Sadly, FHS came up short during the game. For the majority of the game, the Trojans were tied with the Patriots. But when the score was 35-34, Olentangy went for the two point conversion and scored, winning the game 35-36.

“The game didn’t go our way. Hats off to Liberty. The two point conversion was a good call by them. It was a battle. We knew it was going to be. Their record didn’t reflect how good they were,” varsity head coach Stefan Adams said.

“It was very disappointing losing that game and it was really hard to see the sad look on all the players’ faces,” freshman Lynneah Barnes said.

“I was super sad we lost because I love ‘Friday Night Lights’,” sophomore Maggie Bramel said.
