In My Own Words: A Junior High Football player talks about scoring a touchdown

In My Own Words

In this installment of In My Own WordsKaden Swope talks his fourth quarter touchdown against Elizabethtown in a recent Junior High Football game. 

"The thirty, twenty, ten, touchdown!" The excitement in the announcer's voice was obvious.
But after all, I did just score a touchdown.


We were playing Elizabethtown on Wednesday, October 4 in a Junior High football game. Almost immediately, it looked like this was going to be an easy win for Lampeter-Strasburg. Etown threw an interception to our defensive back in the first play of the game. He nearly returned it for a touchdown.

We scored on that drive and stopped them for a three and out of their next drive on offense. After multiple drives, the game was at halftime.

My coach told us that we were doing a great job, but we could also be doing little better on defense. I ran the ball a lot during the second half of the game.

At the start of the fourth quarter, the score was already 35-0. We were crushing them.

About halfway through the fourth quarter, I was getting the ball on a counter play and after I cut up the hole, I saw nothing but green. I went all the way for a touchdown.

After another three and out for Elizabethtown, we ran the clock out and won the game 42-0. It was a complete shutout. It was definitely a game to remember for the Pioneers.
