The Kennesaw Mountain Mustangs lost October 16th against Hillgrove in a hard-hitting contest. The score was 42-6, causing the Mustangs to fall to a record of 2-6 overall and a 1-3 record within the region. The defense struggled to contain the high-flying Hillgrove squad for much of the night, and the offense was never able to overcome its early blunders. Although the outcome was not favorable for the Mustangs, there were a couple positives that can be seen as stepping stones for greater success in the future.

Senior Brycen Jones, number 21, is a terrific player and showed it on Friday night. He made numerous tackles and was all over the field. He was utilized on offense, defense, and special teams, demonstrating his pure athletic talent and endurance. In addition, from the sideline it was clear he was an active leader in attempting to keep morale up and inspire his fellow teammates.  In future games, watch out for his much-needed impact and motivation.

Along with Brycen, sophomore kicker Baylor Cantrell also stepped up. He kicked two great field goals in the first half, showing off his effective mix of power and accuracy. With a couple more years to grow and learn as a player, expect to see great kicks from Baylor in the coming seasons.

The next Kennesaw Mountain Mustang game is at McEachern High School on Friday, October 23. Come join the student section and cheer your Mustangs on!
