Despite the losses suffered so far this season, FPCA football is charging ahead. In their third loss this season, FPCA fell to Hilton Head Christian on Friday night 48-3, and are at 0-3.

Although he is still waiting for his first win, head coach William Roberts is optimistic.

“Even though we are 0-3, I do see improvement.” Roberts said. “We are very young and inexperienced at each position.”

He emphasized the need for the Highlanders to trust each other.

“We are learning to play together as a team and be there for one another, learning to be my brother’s keeper,” he said.

While acknowledging that they are taking their lumps, Roberts praised his team and their grit.

“The team played hard all game. Steven Young and Christopher Dennis played well for our offense. Ben Satele and Tre Davis were strong on defense. Also, Davis had a strip and a touchdown return on defense,” Robert said.

The Highlanders will be back in action Friday against Trinity Christian in Dublin.

Middle school
In its inaugural season, the Highlander middle school football team played a controlled scrimage against Savannah Country Day on Saturday. Inexperience and size were the factors that led to the young Highlanders ending the scrimmage scoreless.

Dwarfed by the Savannah Country Day team, the Highlanders struggled to gain yards and defend.

Roberts started the feeder program for the varsity team to identify and train future FPCA football players.

The team is coached by Chris Garrett.
