Jacob Braden and Ben Rhoades made All-District team for the 2013 season.

“Jacob and Ben were both players that our team looked up to and respected,” said Head Coach Dustin Robinson. “Jacob played defense for us but you couldn’t tell it because he was everywhere on the field. We put a lot on his shoulders on the defensive end. Jacob is a player that you will never question his effort.”

Robinson went on to explain how Rhoades is a special player.

“He is one that you will always know who he is by the end of the game,” he said. “If Ben is not scoring, he is usually doing something to create for someone else. He makes everyone around him better and leads by example.”

Robinson said he looks forward to next year with these two special players returning.
