This Friday, the first football game of the season started off with a fall sports rally to hype up the team before their upcoming fall season. The Don Lugo football team started off their season with a disappointing 3 point loss on their home field to El Rancho. 

The loss didn’t come without a fight with quarterback Kalib Pacheco throwing for 225 yards and 4 Touchdowns on 67% completion rate. Pacheo states , “My personal goal is to make more than 20 touchdowns for the season” With his performance this Friday, he is more of a quarter done achieving that. He has plenty of time as the team has 8 more games within the season allowing him to throw 2,225 yards to complete his goal of 2,500+ yards this season.

Wide receiver Gavin Hrynezuk,  who had a standout game on Friday finished the game with 10 receptions and 109 yards. At the start of the 4th Hrynezuk completed a spectacular diving catch for a touch

down which started a comeback that unfortunately fell short. He states he has a goal to win league MVP which seems very possible following his performance on Friday.

With the addition of a whole new coaching staff this year, the team seems to have a new winning attitude. While interviewing Hrynezuk and Pacheo they both stated the coaches have incredible chemistry with each other. While looking at the stats this new change has caused major improvements for the team. Lugo attempted 8 more pass attempts than last year, completing 35% more of the passes and scoring 25 more points. The massive improvement shows that the play calling has taken a massive leap from the previous year.

Don Lugo is preparing for their game on Friday 8/25 against Los Osos. Line backer Shane Biggs is sad to miss the upcoming games against Los Osos and Hawthorne  He provided a much needed solution the the opposing run game.
