Jones’ NFC Minor Pee Wees upset Rule; Gillette’s NFC ‘7s’ fight hard versus Carter

Despite a 32-0 loss to Rule in the regular season, CBFO Minor Pee Wees NFC head coach Scott Jones said he was confident.

“We knew coming into the game we had this team,” said Jones, whose boys upset Rule 13-7 to win the Knox Metro Youth Football League title Tuesday, Nov. 3, at John Tarleton complex. “I don’t know how to describe how I feel about this team.”

Meanwhile, CBFO’s Junior Hoppers NFC team, led by head coach Mike Gillette, finished second with a final 10-3 record.

Finishing 8-1-1 while handing Rule its first loss, CBFO MPWs were led offensively by Braden Collins: his 35-yard run set up his 3-yard TD scamper, and Braden’s 35-yard scoring jaunt preceded his 1-point conversion run.

Jackson Rowan broke up a fourth-down reverse with a hit, while Max Travis stopped a late drive also by blowing up a reverse. Harrison Heins forced a fumble.

Gillette said about his Junior Hoppers, “We had a lot of small kids, but we had a lot of heart.”

Despite CBFO’s 8-0 loss to Carter in the title game Nov. 5, Gage Maynard had a interception, Joey Poeltl a TD-saving tackle and a Benjamin Henderson a goal-line stand hit to end the first half.

In a 24-6 semifinal win versus Halls, Carter Gillette scored three TDs, two on long runs, while Matt White added a 48-yard TD run.
