Van Horn football Brings Home First Win of the Season

09-2-16_drb-15-editedAfter a disappointing 2-0 start to the season, the Falcon football team made it to the win column in the game against Sherwood on September 2.

Scoring first, the Falcons made their mark with a 20-yard touchdown pass from quarterback John Fenton (11th) to receiver Evan Neal (11th).  Evan, who played receiver on offense and safety on defense, also ran back a punt return for a 64-yard touchdown.

Freshman running back Devonte Telar made two rushing touchdowns for the Falcons.  The final score was 48-22 in the Falcon’s favor.

With Coach William Harris as the new head coach of the team, the Falcons are transitioning to new leadership.

“He knows what he’s doing,” Evan said.  “He likes to put the team in good positions.”

“We’re young and inexperienced,” Coach Harris said.  “We only have five seniors, so it’s a rebuilding year.”
