Junior Varsity: The Path to Success

Starting the JV season coming off months of summer break, the team was excited to dominate the field. There were weeks of practice with the team looking good. Unpracticed players were getting used to the high school football experience. The team was ready.

Eventually, it was time for the fight and the team was ready, or so we thought. We went into the game ready knowing what we were up against, unfortunately losing the game 42-21. The team was disappointed but took it as a learning experience and knew we had to fix something and the team worked hard the whole week. As the next Thursday came, the team had lots of energy and were prepared to win. The game came quick with the whole team having a bad taste in their mouth after losing the first game of the season.

Coach Darrell Davis said, “Be prepared to fight, we must hit first, we must play physical.”

That is exactly what they did, winning the game 20-0. For the next three weeks, the team went on winning, knowing the hardest game yet was coming up. Thursday night on Oct. 5 2023, Zephyrhills High School came to the Cypress field for a battle that they were prepared for but not ready for, sadly losing the game 16-0. The next Monday, Cypress knew they needed to work even harder. The coaches worked nonstop, putting in new plays and doing hitting drills, noticing that the team could be more physical.

Game day, they were prepared and knew exactly what we needed to do. They knew the new plays and drills in the back of their minds, and knew their assignments. The team was on fire, the team came out and “smacked them in the mouth,” said Coach Davis.

Cypress ended up shutting them out, winning 35-0. The team was so excited, knowing they had to keep it up for the very last game of the season. They had a wonderful week of practice with the whole team hyped up, knowing they were going to beat Wiregrass ranch and that they did, winning 35-0. The season was over, but the training was not. Soon, the spring season would arrive, and the grind would start again. But for now, the season was officially over, and the team was ready to get after it in the off-season, showing up to spring football and summer workouts, hitting the gym every time they got that chance, knowing that they are growing for the upcoming season.
