After a perfect season, the seventh grade Jefferson Falcons football team was awarded its trophy by Mayor Eric Wilsusen at the Town Council meeting on April 3, capping off a great year.
The boys were nothing short of dominant all season, racking up a 10-0 record leading them to the Morris County Youth Football League Championship. This is not the first breath of success these young men have had. The Falcons have been on top for five years, ever since coming together in third grade. Their record is 41 wins, 4 losses, and a tie – including three undefeated seasons in four years.
“It feels good that we were able to work hard as a team to earn a championship,” said Jeff Evans. The players are a very tight-knit group, always hanging around together, and that team chemistry shows on the field. Evans considers his teammates “like family, on and off the field.”
The Falcons are working to become a dynasty and carry their success further in their careers. The next goal is to cap off their dominance in eighth grade and then pursue great things in high school football.
