Cougars win day game to open their season
Seton Catholic football is so special, it has its own day.
No lights on the home field, so when the Cougars are home, they pretty much own the Clark County high school football scene, often as the only game in town on Saturdays.
This season, they opened the Saturday schedule with a victory.
The Cougars had two defensive touchdowns for the first time in program history and recorded the first shutout for the program as well.
“We’re a much faster defense,” Seton Catholic coach Will Ephraim said, comparing to seasons past. “They were flying around. That was so fun to watch.”
Griffin Young and Eli Volk each had scoop-and-scores, returning fumbles for touchdowns.
On offense, Ephraim noted the play of freshman running back CJ Hamblin, who led the team in rushing.
Defensively, the coach said he impressed with the linebackers, for their relentless pursuit.
Before the game, the Cougars dedicated their performance to Neil Brislawn Sr., and his family. Brislawn, a Seton parent and friend to the community, died Aug. 21.
“It’s a privilege to play today,” Ephraim reminded his players. “Let’s give (the family) something worth showing. Let’s play for somebody other than us.”
