Taking a Bite Out of HISTORY

Taking+a++Bite+Out+of+HISTORY

As the Crown Point High School football season comes to an end, the dogs have yet again made history. For the first time since 1988, 35 years, the team made it to state, getting the opportunity to play at the Lucas Oil Stadium, where the Indianapolis Colts play. Even though the team could not pull off the win against Ben Davis High School, losing 38-10, they held their head up high, knowing that they made lasting memories and made history. 

“I definitely think that this season was a memorable run. I think that people will tell stories of this season for years to come,” senior Jeffrey Meschede said. 

“It was a great honor to be recognized by the state officials, it felt great,” Meschede said.

Although the team didn’t win state, they didn’t end up losing overall. Meschede won the Phil N. Eskew Mental Attitude Award in Class 6A Football. 

“It was a great honor to be recognized by the state officials, it felt great,” Meschede said. 

During their Regional Championship, Penn Kingsman took the lead of 6-0 early on, but the dogs immediately responded and took a 20-13 lead in the first half. They would continue to hold the lead, winning the championship 34-33. 

The semi-state game was a whirlwind with Westfield taking the lead. But, again, the dogs fought, and they were able to secure the win 38-31 and make it to state. 

Throughout the entirety of the season, the players were able to make connections and have fun, while also trying to play the best that they could. Having practice every day had its difficulties, but it was all worth the hardships when the dogs went undefeated for the second year in a row.

“It really does feel great to go undefeated for our second year in a row. It has felt unreal to go to semi-state and state for the first time since 1988. My absolute favorite part of the season was going to the football field every day and showing up for my teammates.
