Friday Night Lights went a little bit differently this year with the season starting in the Spring, fewer games, no fans, and games not always on a Friday. In addition to those changes, the team was surprised with new jerseys and ended the season 4-1.
Senior Quarterback Logan Williams, with 7 touchdowns, 752 passing yards, and 350 rushing yards, didn’t take his last season lightly.
“Going into the year we didn’t know what was going to happen, so everyone on the team put their all into the offseason and it ended up translating in a positive way going into the season,” said Williams.
Favorably for the Pirates, the winning season was rewarding in lieu of the circumstances, especially for the seniors.
“It [High school football] impacted me in many ways. I feel like the things that have been drilled into my mind by coaches over the last four years were only to make me better and now moving on will be a lot easier,” said Williams.
Pirate Football is to return to the field for a regular fall season next school year with a majority of the team returning. At the end of the season, the team celebrated several all conference players.
