This month in football, the Woodstock Wolverine football team started off their season with a scrimmage against the River Ridge Knights on Aug. 11. The team defeated River Ridge by a large margin; 40-7. With the team excited over their astounding victory, they prepared to face their next opponent. The Friday after the win, the Wolverine football team faced another pack of Wolverines from West Forsyth. Woodstock lost to West Forsyth 34-14.

“I think we still have a lot to work on, but we are looking promising and looking forward to an amazing year,” said junior running back Ryan Martin.

Against River Ridge, senior quarterback Garrett Bass led the Wolverine Squad. Bass threw for 10 completions in 16 attempts for 214 yards and four touchdowns. Other offensive threats against the Knights included senior running back Donovan Grey, who ran for 88 yards in just nine attempts averaging almost ten yards a run. Also, wide receiver Louis Hall had 87 yards on three catches, and two of those three were for touchdowns.

When the Woodstock Wolverine pack faced another Wolverine team of West Forsyth, they fell just short. Garrett Bass threw for 21 completions in 42 attempts for 242 yards and two touchdowns. Victor Glover led the rushing game with ten yards in five attempts. Noah Frith had the most receiving yards with 100 yards, but Louis Hall led Woodstock in receiving touchdowns with two.

The defense was great against West Forsyth showing up to rush the quarterback, and coming away with four sacks in the game. The defense was led by middle linebacker Wes Killgore who had 15 tackles and 1.5 sacks. Defensive tackle Latrell Bankston and safety Andrew Bartolero both showed out as well with each having 12 tackles. Bankston had 1.5 sacks with Bartolero adding a half sack of his own.

Despite the early loss, players still seem optimistic about the season.

“I think the season is going to go well. We have a good team, and I feel like the offense we run is going to get some touchdowns,” sophomore David Spence said, “I’m just here to play with my brothers. Everything is going to turn out good.”

Wolverine of the Month: Hunter Ongeri, OT

“Hunter is like the leader of the offensive line and he is a great athlete. His offensive line had to protect Garrett on over 40 throws and West Forsyth did not sack Garrett once,” said sophomore quarterback Shane Zachos.

Hunter is loved by all of his teammates, and is a leader on and off the field. Congratulations to Hunter Ongeri for being the Woodstock Wolverines football team’s Wolverine of the Month.
