Homecoming Shutout: Steers win over Midland Greenwood Rangers
The sport of football has several clichés. The cliché to sum up the Graham Steers’ 17-0 homecoming victory over the Midland Greenwood Rangers according to Steers head coach Kenny Davidson is “smash-mouth football.”
The Steers entered homecoming weekend looking to erase the memories of a rough September that saw the team outscored 149-80, with decreased scoring outputs each week. The team faced plenty of challenges going into the game.
Homecoming week already presents its own set of challenges with increased distractions throughout the week. Adding to the week’s difficulties was the absence of starting quarterback Ty Thompson who missed the game due to injury. Senior Ashton Day took over the starting spot in Thompson’s absence. Although Day was a backup to Hunter Lanham for three years, Friday was the first time Day saw significant time during a varsity game at quarterback.
