Rivalry Game: Soddy Daisy Vs. Red Bank

The Men of Troy played an intense game on Friday, September 10th against Red Bank. It was a devastating loss against our rivalry at 46-14 with our two touchdowns being scored last minute in the 3rd quarter. Both touchdowns were scored by Tanner Whittenbarger. The first was an 8 yard run and the second one was an 80 yard run. The game began with a tribute and a moment of silence for the tragedy of 9/11 and another for the two Soddy Daisy students who passed away in recent days. 

Football player Donovan Sullivan shares why he believes the Trojans took on an enormous loss that night: “Practice execution equals game reality.” The Trojans just did not practice how they wanted to perform, and therefore did not play at their best. Coach Raborn believes that another way the Trojans can improve is on their attitude and drive to be better. “We need to learn how to play with more passion and enthusiasm,” He said.

All in all, the Soddy Daisy football team suffered a great loss from their rival, but are ready to improve and bring their best to the next game.
