The Southern Christian Athletics Varsity football team got their first win in program history this past Thursday, Oct. 8. In their first road game, the Southern Chistian Patriots won 35-8 against East Central (Moody, Alabama). Southern Christian gave up an early eight points; however, that would be the only points East Central would score due to a tough defensive effort highlighted by seven tackles from sophomore Josiah Frick and six tackles by senior Jackson Washburn. Senior quarterback Daniel Adams had a phenomenal night on the ground, leading the team with 131 yards rushing. Senior Silas Frick also had a great night with two TD’s while his brother Josiah Frick just had to one-up him with three TD’s. “I am so proud of our effort especially after being down early,” said Southern Christian head coach Mike Adams, “but I am most proud that the referee told me after the game that our team had displayed the best sportsmanship he’s witnessed in his 11 years of officiating”. The Patriots will next play on Oct. 16 at 7 p.m. in Alabaster, Alabama versus Trinity Chistian.
