The Redwood varsity football team finished this season with a record of 3-7, while also losing their sole playoff game on Nov. 11 by a score of 0-42 against Granada High School. With the varsity team finishing last years’ 2016-2017 season with a record of 9-3, as well as making it to the second round of NCS playoffs, many players attribute the change in pace due to their youthful team.
With only 14 of the 40 players on the team being seniors, many athletes within the program including senior Mason Cohen attribute this losing record to the age of their team.
“With our team graduating 19 seniors last year, a lot of young players had to step up and play a role on varsity this year. Unfortunately, a large majority of our team was too young to match up with senior dominate teams such as TL,” Cohen said.
However, with the junior varsity team finishing with an overall record of 7-1, many varsity players including junior Alex Aguero are excited for what the future holds.
“The JV showed a lot of promising talent this year. With a large number of these players moving up to varsity next year, I’m excited to see how these players will contribute and benefit our team,” Aguero said.
