Jayvees get win, but lose quarterback / October 07, 2021
Halifax County High School jayvee football picked up an 18-6 win over Jefferson Forest on Monday. The jayvees are now 3-1.

Coach LeVar Medley said he was extremely proud of the team’s performance but also heartbroken over quarterback Titus Tucker suffering an injury as time ran out.

“He’s just a talented young man, not only in football but he’s a heck of a basketball player too,” Medley said. “A lot of the air went out of our sail when we lost that young man, with the potential to become a great leader. He was playing a really good game before he got hurt.”

Speaking to the entirety of the game Medley said, “Just an overall total team victory.”

Arious Sweeney punched in two scores for the 12-6 halftime lead. Halifax scored again in the third quarter.

The Comets’ defense did an excellent job of holding JF’s offense in check.

“Overall I’m very proud of the kids because Jefferson Forest came in running a single-wing type offense. It was pretty much the mentality of shoving it down our throats.

“What I’m so proud of is that our young men stood up and fought — it was far from perfect — but I love the effort of the fight in our kids, especially defensively because we figured some things out on the fly and they adjusted well. We began pursuing tackles very well as the game went on.

“I can’t explain in words how proud I am of this team” Medley said. “We had some guys that grew up during that game and start to figure it out. As a coach I just hope we get more guys to figure it out.”

The Comets play Magna Vista at home on Thursday. Game time is 6 p.m.
