JV football ready for a win

Carlmont’s junior varsity football team is off to a 2-0 start after defeating The King’s Academy and Gunn High School.

“Things are looking up,” said Shelby Rebholtz, a sophomore on the team.

Carlmont’s first game against The King’s Academy was a success, with a final score of 64-0. Their second game against Gunn High School was somewhat more difficult than they thought. “[It was a] bigger challenge than we expected… we powered through and achieved our goal,” Rebholtz said.

“We went in a little over-confident at Gunn, but we came back in the 4th,” said sophomore Chris Jabs.

The team is bonding well. “We got a lot of freshman here playing hard,” said assistant coach Pete Lotti

Lotti was also enthusiastic about Carlmont’s first home game. The Scots will play Aragon High School on Sept. 21.

“It’s going to be exciting: new field, lights… It’s going to be great for the students and the community,” added Lotti.

The team is practicing hard and studying their opponents. “We’re going to be watching some game (tapes of Aragon), and hopefully come up with a good game plan,” said sophomore Aaron Karpie, who is confident in Carlmont’s potential.
