Trojans celebrate Homecoming with win over OV

A Homecoming victory helped the Fruitport Trojans remain on track to wrap up a share of the Lakes Eight Conference championship and secured a state playoff berth for the Trojans. According to coach Steve Wilson, his team has only begun to reach its goals. "Our kids played well,' said Wilson, whose team is now 6-1 overall and 5-1 in league games. "We got everything we wanted out of them. Homecoming is always special, and we've won just about all of them.

“Now we want to win out, we want to host a playoff game, and we want to advance in the playoffs. That’s our goal. To make the playoffs isn’t a goal, it’s an expectation.”

The Trojans have lived up to expectations this year thanks to a dominating running attack and a swarming defense.

That ground game piled up 363 yards against a short-handed Orchard View squad on Friday, including 144 yards on just eight carries for fullback Logan Six.

Six gained most of those yards on one play — an 81-yard scamper midway through the first quarter that put the Trojans on top 14-0. Six credited his offensive line for making the play happen.

“It wouldn’t have been there without great play by the line,” said Six, who also made a game-high 14 tackles from his linebacker spot. “The hole was wide open. When I cut back through the middle, I didn’t want to get caught, so I cut back to the right side a little bit.”

One game at a time.

They're so far over the horizon right now, we don't even need to engage them yet.

We'll see what their thoughts are as we get closer to November, but for now, we gotta slay some dragons.
