Titusville enjoyed their best season since 2016 with six wins. Unfortunately their 6-4 record meant that their playoff fate would be decided by a bunch of old folks in suits and not on the field.
On Sunday the D10 decided. The Rockets are out.
Friday they knew they had to win to put themselves in the discussion. And they did with a tough win over Corry 28 - 21.
“We had opportunities early on (in the year,)” Reynolds said. “Defensively speaking against Sharpsville, we had structural issues we needed to fix. Had those happened preseason, we win that game.” Reynolds, after every loss this season, blamed himself and the coaching staff for not having the kids prepared enough.
“Additionally during the LeBoeuf game we were rolling early on, committed a turnover and made a bad decision on a fourth and one that led to a score… Once again, we protect the ball and we win that game. This was still a learning year for both our kids and staff.”
McDonald had 1,041 yards passing and 12 touchdowns and added another 325 on the ground. He was also a solid defender with 37 tackles and three interceptions.
JJ Miller led the team with 91 tackles. Senior Nate Stearns had 73 with Brett Schmidt close by with 71.
“I want to... thank all of our athletes, families, and supporters. We had a great season, and I am proud of all that our team accomplished,” Reynolds said. He added a thank you to his seniors for their leadership and dedication. For the underclassmen he hopes to improve on what they are built already and has already come up with the team mantra for next season - “#LeaveNoDoubt24”
