Lebanon head football coach Will Christian said it best after the game in his postgame interview. He mentioned the quote of “not everything is bad in 2020” after his team won their third district championship in four years, throttling the Glendale Falcons 52-18 on Friday night at ‘Jacket Stadium.
“Winning district championships are a special deal,” he stated. “ They aren’t easy, and we are fortunate to win three out of the last four years. I am proud of our kids and excited for our community.”
The ‘Jackets played their most complete game of the season with a dominant performance from the defense and handled their business on offense per usual with 192 yards and four touchdowns coming from senior fullback Drew McBride.
“Super proud of us defensively,” Christian said. “I thought our plan was spot on, and we gave them some things, but we took away things that they wanted to do.
“I don’t think not only will Drew McBride get a good night of sleep tonight, but the kids who attempted to tackle him all night will too. I am proud of that senior. He is a great kid, and I can’t say enough good things about Drew McBride.”
The high-potent passing Glendale offense threw for just 123 yards in the contest and 148 rushing yards.
Lebanon’s offense produced 410 yards on Friday, with junior quarterback Peyton Mitchell going 3-5 with 56 yards and a touchdown through the air. Senior Antonio Rogers had 30 yards rushing while Isaac Ledbetter had 59 yards.
