John Carroll Catholic is hoping to kick their second season under head coach Mickey Groody into overdrive this Friday when they host the Falcons in a game you can watch on CW34 at 7 PM. The Golden Rams have one of the most talented backfields on the Treasure Coast, while Jensen Beach is packed with ultra talented athletes on both sides of the ball, and would be a tough test for any team.
"They are very similar to us in a lot of ways, including a lot of their guys go both ways," says Groody. "And for us being a small 3A School that's one thing we kind of have to deal with on a daily basis, trying to figure out how to rest guys, how to give guys rest so they can play in the 4th quarter,"
"We can only do it for hard work, and through the coaching we have," says defensive end Casen Brugnone. "Especially here at John Carroll. It's helped a lot, and everyone has bought in."
Watch all of the action between the Falcons and Golden Rams this Friday night starting at 7 PM on CW34. We'll be live at John Carroll on Friday morning for a special pep rally, and at 5 PM on CBS12 News.
