CV Beats Rogers Despite Mistakes
Youthful exhuberance led to youthful mistakes, but it couldn’t hide the potentional on Central Valley’s young football team.
“We only had four of 22 players where it wasn’t their first start,” said Bears coach Rick Giampietri of Thursday’s 24-14 win over Rogers. “You don’t know what’s going to happen.”
What happened was more than 200 yards in penalties and four fumbles that dulled CV’s attack.
However, it couldn’t dull the sheen on the offensive debuts of junior Garrett Graham and sophomore Tyree Clowe, in particular.
Graham, at tailback, carried 13 times for 158 yards and two touchdowns.
“I wasn’t expecting it,” he said. “It just happened. I was expecting to play fullback.”
Clowe, doubtful until Thursday afternoon that he would even play, came up big on both sides of the ball, including a touchdown pass reception.
“Tyree had a lower back sprain,” said Giampietri. “When he said he felt fine we played him on defense. As he loosened up he played offense. That’s a pretty good combination in the backfield.”
Senior Nate Bartlett got the start and a solid effort at quarterback.
The win was important prior to future games against favorites Gonzaga Prep and Mead in successive weeks.
Giampietri is convinced this team, with Graham and Clowe in the backfield, can ultimately run the ball against most teams in the league.
If they eliminate the mistakes.
“We’re a young team, it’s going to take awhile,” said Graham. “They were mental mistakes, but we came back from them.”
