Coach John Robinson looks on as the team preps for a game. The Varsity Football Team has held a mostly successful season so far, starting with the opening game win. This loss only occurred during the last 30 seconds of the game.

On a cool night in Dayton the Varsity Football Team took on the Trotwood-Madison Rams in SHS’ third non-conference game of the year. SHS got off to a fast start, pounding the ball down the field to take a seven to nothing lead. Then, on the next drive, they returned a Trotwood punt for an 80 yard touchdown.

Sophomore quarterback Jake Borman, playing in only his third game as a starter, got off to a hot start, completing a 30 yard pass to end the half with us up 27-13. The team went into the locker room with loads of confidence after a solid half of football.

The second half did not go as smooth for the Aviators, as they gave up their lead, and the score was 33-30 in favor of Trotwood.  Although the aggressive game style worked extremely well against one of the best defenses in Ohio, the Aves could not pull out this game. The final score ended up being 33-30.

Even though they did not come out with the win, SHS held onto a lead against the defending Division III State finalists.

They hope to avenge their loss at Princeton High School on Fri. Sept. 19. This is the first of seven Greater Miami Conference (GMC) matchups. These games have a bigger impact than non-conference games, so if the Aves can perform well, they should be considered for a high seed in the Playoffs come Nov.
