We Are The Champions!!!
It’s that time of the year to pause, reflect and give thanks to all that’s important in your life. As a High Point Midget Football player, parent, and fan you have a lot to be thankful for as memories were made again as the players were legendary and history has been written.
Last year it was the snow at Maple Grange Field, this year it was the cold frozen field with the bone chilling wind at Wallkill Valley Regional High School where High Point made their appearance in the NJYFL Championship games.
High Point’s first championship contender was at the Super level where High Point’s Super Red faced off against Vernon’s Super Gold. High Point struck first as they rumbled the ball down the field on the back of Trevor Gruber and then delivered their first strike with an 5 yard TD run by Nick Douma in the 2nd quarter making the score 6-0. In the 3rd quarter Vernon answered back with a rushing TD making the score 6-6. On the next possession High Point commanded the ball down the field again with Trevor Gruber ripping off notable power runs up the middle of the field only for the drive to be capped off by Daniel Delima with a 1 yard QB sneak making the score HP 12 Vernon 6. Then with 2 minutes to play in the 4th quarter Vernon tied the game at 12. With less than two minutes to play High Point had the ball on their own 35 yard line needing to move the ball 65 yards in less than two minutes in order to achieve victory. On the 5th play of the drive High Point’s Nick Douma broke a 37 yard gain putting Vernon on their heals. High Point quickly went into their hurry up offense when they ran a reverse opening up the outside for Nick Douma who scampered his way to the end zone behind his convoy of bone crushing blockers to score the game winning touchdown making the score 18-12. That wasn’t the end though as Vernon still had one last chance with a fresh set of downs and 41 seconds left on the clock. Vernon took to the air only to be shot down 4 plays in a row by High Point’s impressive defense resulting in High Point’s Super Red defeating Vernon’s Super Gold 18-12 and becoming High Point’s first championship team of the day!
As the day started to warm up and field tried to thaw out for the next game between High Point and Sparta at the PeeWee level High Point’s play was scorching hot right from the start while Sparta’s play was lukewarm at best. High Point struck first with a powering 34 yard touchdown run up the middle by Brendan Hall making the score HP 7 Sparta 0. On the next series Sparta went 4 and out putting the ball back into High Point’s possession. High Point wasted no time getting the ball back to Hall who scored his second TD of the game on a 28 yard sweep making the score High Point 13 Sparta 0. High Point’s defense shut Sparta’s offense out once again and got the ball back and began working it down the field. Ryan Kinkead topped High Point’s 63 yard drive off with a 28 yard TD pass to a wide open Noah Cruz making the score High Point 19 Sparta 0 at the half. High Point didn’t let up there as they returned to the second half and unleashed the running fury of Brendan Hall who punished his way off tackle for a 37 yard TD run, his third of the game, making the score High Point 25 Sparta 0. On High Point’s next offensive possession they got creative with a 40 yard end around by Noah Cruz which setup their next strike which was a 3 yard TD run up the middle by Connor Lake making the score High Point 31 Sparta 0. Throughout the entire game High Point’s defense remained stout as they gave up only 2 first downs the entire game and flexing their defensive muscles. High Point capped the game off with an 85 yard gazelle like TD run by Connor Milks making the commanding final score of the game High Point 37 Sparta 0 and giving High Point their second championship victory of the day!
What a remarkable and memorable accomplishment by an inspiring and exceedingly talented group of athletes. High Point was the only program to bring two teams to the championship games this season and both teams capitalized on their opportunity as they both brought home a championship which is an amazing way to finish the 2014 season!
Congratulations to the players as all their hard work and dedication has reaped it’s reward. Congratulations to the coaches as your tireless preparation and planning has been notable and commendable. Congratulations and thank you to the parents as your sacrifice and devotion has been noteworthy and rewarding. Congratulations and thank you to the cheerleaders for all your support throughout the entire season and especially throughout the cold post season games as your awesome cheerful spirit was well received and much valued. And congratulations to the fans as your undying support has been appreciated.
Another great year for the High Point Midget Football organization!
