Don Lugo Football has not gotten off to a great start and is 0-5 at this point. Five games into the season, football has been struggling and according to many people they are losing hope for the team. But in fact, there is still league that is to be played which are the last three games against teams that are in Lugo’s division.

What people don’t know is that these teams in Don Lugo’s league, are also doing very bad and have had a bad start to their season as well. The record combined with all of the teams that are in the division is 4-19, making the last 3 games still very winnable. The main problem that Lugo Football is having is still having hope after all of the games that they have lost which have mostly all been blow outs.

“As a captain and someone that the team all looks at, it is really hard to keep everyone’s head up especially when we aren’t putting up any points on the board almost every game,” Senior Luke Kemble said. Lugo Football has only scored twice which was against El Segundo in week three. Trying to keep your head up during these times and zone out all the outside talk from other people can get difficult.

Luke said, ” The main problem that we have is people on the team get affected by what others have to say about them and causes a lack of motivation and almost no point to play.” Having this problem and lack of motivation is one of the hardest things to deal with in sports. This is one of the biggest problems that the football team is having and they are trying to figure out a way to improve and focus on themselves and what they can do to get better.
