Porter’s Chapel Academy Junior High football finishes their season with an undefeated 7-0 record this year after defeating St. Andrews 26-14 earlier this week.

Head coach Blake Purvis called the plays for the young team that blew out most of their competition.

The Eagles biggest win came against Franklin in a 42-14 victory. PCA also had two forfeit wins on the season which helped pave the way for an undefeated season.

Many of the Eagles put up impressive stats for the team during the five games they were able to play this year.

Quarterback John Wyatt Massey finished the season with 8 passing touchdowns and 1 rushing touchdown. Brayson Morson also had 8 touchdowns all coming from running the ball.

Taylor Osbourne was Massey’s key target as he caught 3 touchdowns and rushed for 1.

Jase Jung led the defense for the Eagles as he racked up 5 interceptions and returned 2 of them for touchdowns.

Overall, the Eagles averaged 32 points per game offensively and only allowed 13.4 points defensively.

Warren Central High School football player Tevin Bell finished his senior season as one of the best cornerbacks in the city.

Although the Vikings only played eight games on the field this year, Bell still managed to put up impressive stats.

During the the 2020 football season, Bell had five interceptions on the Vikings defense and became well known for his ability to shut down any wide receiver who lined up against him. He also had eight pass deflections along with 16 tackles on the year.

With his great athletic ability, Bell is the player his coaches turned to for a big play.

“Tevin is the type of athlete you want to build your program based on,” said Vikings assistant coach Ced Jackson. “Hardworking, determination, versatile, respectful and most of all, coachable. His passion and love for the game and his team could never be questioned, and it was an honor to be his coach and watch him grow as a person.”

Bell really showed off his talents when the Vikings played against Madison Central where he caught two big interceptions in the 8-0 victory for Warren Central.

He has not announced his future plans but scholarship offers should be rolling in soon for this outstanding athlete.
