For the Wellington 7th grade team, 2014 had little go wrong

They had great skilled players, great line, great depth, great work ethic, and great attitudes. And they won every game except one by at least 20 points.They are your 2014 Pioneer League Champions.So what will the future look like? We have been here before, great Wellington Middle School teams which for whatever reason can’t achieve similar success in high school.“I don’t think there are any guarantees,” said Wellington seventh grade head coach Mitch McComb, who is in his seventh year. “But I like the depth of this particular group. In other classes I coached, I may have had three or four standout players. This group has a lot more ‘good’ football players.”The Knights had 33 players out this year – a tremendous number for a middle school team which usually averages 20 to 25 football players.But the key ingredient was their depth and diversity. McComb had good players in every position and had people to sub in for those players.“I can see this being the kind of class during their senior year with 25 players,” McComb said. “But they have to stick with it.”One thing about it, future years would be hard to top 2014.The Knights started with a 36-16 pounding of Mulvane. (see stats below).They whipped up on Clearwater 44-6. Played their only close game with Winfield – winning 12-6.Then they ran through three victory yawners: 40-6 over Eldorado; 38-8 over Rose Hill, 38-8 over Circle.And that set up a showdown with Arkansas City for the Pioneer League Div. III title in the season finale. If the Knights won that game, they would be undisputed champions.The game had the look of a showdown of epic proportions. Ark City had dropped one game and it was to Winfield, the same team Wellington beat earlier in the final second. It was sure to be a barnburner going in.It wasn’t. Wellington 44 Ark City 6.“Honestly, looking back, my biggest surprise is Winfield got that close to us,” McComb said.That game defined the Knights season in week #3. The two teams were knotted at 6-all with 7:30 to play in the fourth quarter. Winfield had punted and pinned Wellington at its own 8 yard line.It turned out to be the drive of the season. The Knights would go on a 16-play jaunt that included 12 runs to the right and four to the left. And with 4 seconds to play, quarterback Zander Vargas ran a naked bootleg to the left and scored from the 5 with no time left on the clock.Now that is about as exciting as you can get.Vargas was 18 of 30 for 269 yards passing and 444 yards rushing as quarterback this season.“He is very coachable and a good leader,” McComb said. “He never panicked under pressure and is football smart.”And he had a bevy of running backs to back him up. Hunter Greenlee was the right halfback, who had 446 yards on 46 attempts for a 9.7 yard average.Isaac Hilt was the “B” back or fullback. He had 394 yards for a 9.16 average. Then there was Blake Rausch, who would get 265 yards. Gage Cunningham had 113 yards off the bench. In all there were 11 runners for the seventh grade team and 10 would score.“My biggest problem was trying to get them into the game so they all had carries,” McComb said.The wide receiving corp was led by Silas Popplewell who had 12 catches for 234 yards and three touchdowns.The offensive line was exceptional as well. From right to left there was Kyler Henry at strong tackle, Dominic Dvorak as a strong guard, Luke McComb as center, Jacob Soria as quick guard, and Ken Farley as quick tackle. Kaden Young and True DeJarnett came in as reserves.You would think this was enough to play defense. But McComb had six players on the offense and six players on the defense that played just one way.Running a base 4-4 defense, Hilt was Wellington’s top tackler. As a eagle safety he would get 21 solo tackles and eight assists.In total, 11 different defenders got 10 or more tackles during the season.Everywhere you looked the stats were nasty. Wellington would recover 10 fumble recoveries, three forced fumbles, three interceptions and two defensive touchdowns.Except for the Winfield game, the No. 1 defense was done by the fourth quarter.The group is also close and had great work ethic.“It got boring sometimes in practice,” McComb said. “There wasn’t a lot to fix.”Was there a weak link with the 2014 seventh grade team?“Oh, they weren’t always the best tacklers,” McComb said. “But still our No. 1 defense was scored on only twice this season.” 54McComb12 17Fairbanks50 2 TeamScoreTotal YardsRushingPassingRushesPass Att. 3 1 10 3Cunningham1171118 64Kotchaver20 29 14Soles822 4 ClearwaterW 44-632926960444 of 6 4 32Greenlee464469.763R Follow us on Twitter. 3 3Cunningham281134.0412B 13 14Soles1090.91B 2 1 27Garton31 2Vargas3018269314 10Long13 76Young30 3 60Love361 3 15Goodrum448 32Greenlee2131 7Popplewell1251 8 No. NameAtt.Comp.YdsTDINT2pt. 11Buckman34 Rose HillW 38-830827731342 of 4 No.NameAtt.Yds.Ave.TD2pt.Postion 11Buckman240 Close Forgot password?

Report Reply 0 replies · active 302 weeks ago +1 Vote up Vote down Crusader4Life · 302 weeks ago It was a great season for the boys. I have to say though with the blowouts there were at most of the games, the coaches should have put some of the second and third string kids in more often than the last few seconds of the 4th quarter. Felt like blowout stats were more important than kids learning the game by getting playing time. That isn’t good football at this grade level in my opinion. Report Reply 0 replies · active 302 weeks ago -5 Vote up Vote down For What it’s Worth! · 302 weeks ago I’ve never understood why people can’t get it. You commented that we will wait to see if that kind of success follows them to high school. Success at the middle school does not guarantee anything. You play only other 7th or 8th graders. In High School, you play 4 years worth of the town’s best players!! It’s the All-Star Team. I am so tired of hearing parents talk about the success their child had in middle school. It isn’t even close to the same thing!! Report Reply 0 replies · active 302 weeks ago +9 Vote up Vote down Dj88 · 302 weeks ago The junior class now were pioneer league champs also back in 2011 and now there’s 9 that play high school football. So the important thing is to keep these kids out. As far as 7th grade team 2nd and 3rd team boys played off and on the entire game and Definately a lot in the second half not just last few seconds of the game. Also what outsiders don’t understand is that grades ,behavior in class, and work ethic at practice and showing up at practice effects playtime . The stats kinda prove that by how many of these young men scored touchdowns 10 find another program that 10 different kids have scored touchdowns in 7 games! At any level high school or college probably NFL . Great job coach Mccomb. Report Reply 0 replies · active 302 weeks ago +4 Vote up Vote down JC85 · 302 weeks ago Dj88 has it right. Just look at the stats! Look how many kids got tackles or at least in on tackles. You can’t look at the score and tell which kids got to play. Congrats on a perfect season boys!

COPPER BANDITS STEAL 1,000 METRES OF CABLE IN BIGGEST HEIST YET

first_imgA highly-oranised gang of roaming copper bandits has stolen one thousand metres of high grade Eircom phone lines.More than €10,000 of cabling has been stolen in biggest raid to date.The raid, which took place at four different locations, happened last weekend.In what is one of the most serious attack ever on the communications system in Donegal, cable worth more than €10,000 was taken on the Milford to Carrigart road at four different locations. The robbery is the latest but most serious incident which has seen copper cabling stolen on at least a DOZEN different occasions over the past four years.Eircom engineers told the Tirconail Tribune that sophisticated cutting equipment would have taken hours to cut down the cabling.In one instance close to Cranford some 500 metres was taken: further down the road 250 metres were cut out and a stay across the road to stabilise the system was also slashed to pieces in what is described as a highly dangerous operation for any passing motorists.Elsewhere near Sweeney’s Filling Station at Devlinreagh a further 100 metres was removed while close to the junction with the road into the Harry Blaney Bridge a further 150 metres was taken. Eircom officials say this is the most serious incident yet and phone subscribers are struggling in many isolated areas to keep in touch with their families.There had been a noted decline in cable theft but this returned in July with another spate of robberies.A total of 1,500 metres of cable was taken during different raids at a number of locations including, Fanad, Drumbarnett,  Glenveagh, Drumkeen, Mongorry Hill and Rahan on the outskirts of Letterkenny.Only a year earlier the copper bandits struck three times in four daysin the community in Fanad.While it is claimed there is an active Garda operation ongoing, thepublic seems not to be aware of this and the thefts continue unabated. Some now are questioning the extent of the investigation as more and more people continue to find themselves cut off for periods of time because of the thefts.COPPER BANDITS STEAL 1,000 METRES OF CABLE IN BIGGEST HEIST YET was last modified: September 5th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:CarrigartcopperGardaiMilfordtelephone cable stolenthieveslast_img read more
