Friday, Oct. 23, Graves County varsity football team played Muhlenberg County at home. The Eagles won 35-6.

Freshman Jayden Barnett said, “I really think we played as a team and our offensive line blocked great for the running game. Our defense stepped up in the second half  and the energy on the side lines was great. It was an overall great performance by all the players.”

“I feel like the team is a lot closer than we were last year, we have a stronger family now especially with everything going on right now,” said junior Kaiden Stimson.  “We’re ready to play. We are really trying to fix the week spots and improve the strong spots that we have already and just play like it might be our last game because who knows it might be with Covid going around.”

Sophmore Jack Cope agreed: “I really think our passing game has really improved. John Ben has gotten way more comfortable in the pocket. He’s able to move around a lot more and throw it whoever he wants to. We are going through a lot of our plays. We’ve got some new stuff we’re going to try to put in and get to work on that. Just talking to one another, knowing our assignments.”

Graves County will play Marshall County at Graves on Friday, October 30th at 7:30 pm.
