Tristen Newsome stepped up to the plate in the quarterback position and matured every week. Magee’s powerful defense held strong all year.
Coach Jones stated “I thought we played extremely hard. Enterprise is a very good team and we could not catch the break we needed to get in front. While it wasn’t the result we wanted, I am proud of the this team. They worked hard all year and did everything we asked. We had a great group of seniors who I know will take the lessons learned in football and be successful people in life. We have a lot of talented players coming back and the future is bright. We will go to work today at getting better because our goals are to win championships.”
