Starting Out Strong Written by 9th Grader Hunter Ferguson

This year the LDNE Football Team is made up of 14 players. According to the rosters, they will be outnumbered by every team they play. In the first week, only 11 players suited up.Their starting quarterback, Chevy Henneman, and running back, Marcus Hegy, were both injured. Hopefully both of them will be back and running next week. Even though the numbers are low and injuries are hurtful, the Cougars started out their first game with a 40-14 win against Parkview Christian. The whole crowd went crazy every time a touchdown was scored and the band played as loud as possible. Their next game will be against Humphrey St. Francis in Humphrey at 7:00 PM on September 5th. This will be a tougher game. The Cougars will surprise a lot of people this year, and they will fight until the end. Please come out and support the Cougars every Friday night. They deserve that with all of the work they have put in. Thanks for reading and supporting our Cougars!
