As we write the last chapter and close the book on the 2012 Admiral Football season, the highlights contain many positive reflections and encouragement for the future.
Before the season even began, everyone knew that the Admirals faced one of the toughest schedules in Tennessee. Now, after the fact, a recent analysis determined that in Division I, Class AAA, the “Toughest Schedule” in Tennessee based on Opponents’ Success was…in the #1 slot…Farragut High School. Still, the team did not back down from the strength of its competition. During the course of the regular season, the Ads earned quality wins over state-ranked teams from McMinn County and Catholic High Schools. The team engaged in extraordinary, fierce battles against state-ranked teams from Oak Ridge and Bearden. The 2012 Admirals were the first team in many, many years to score 41 points against defending state champion Maryville. And, in the final accounting, four of the team’s losses were decided by only 7 points or less.; and, those four losses were decided by a total of only 17 points.
As the regular season statistics are penciled in the history books, we can proudly see Farragut Admirals all over the District 4-AAA Leaderboard:
Passing: #1 Bryan Phillips
Receiving: #1 Thomas Barnett, #5 Christian Jetton, #8 Jake Bruce
Rushing: #2 Jackson Fain
Kicking: #2 Jonathan King
Defense: #3 Ryan Glintenkamp
To the 2012 Farragut Admirals we say “Anchors Away!” to an amazing group of seniors. Student-athletes who will not be defined by a Won/Loss record but who will be remembered as tenacious competitors who never said quit. These young men set sail toward very bright horizons.
And, to the 2013 Admirals, we say “Anchor Down!” The Ads will return a veteran group of football players, including: Phillips, Jetton, Glintenkamp, Farner, Rodriguez, Dunn, Gilliam, White, Partin, Williams, Suadi, Brabson, Farmer, Coffey, Al-Hussein, Saah, Hillencamp, Eggert and many more talented athletes that are certain to build on the legacy and tradition of Farragut Football.
