Before we start the Semis and Finals we need to finish the quarter finals !
Come watch the “Situation” everyone is talking about…..3/4th grade OSU vs Army, Thursday 5:15 pm field #7. Coach Shane Pinchot vs Coach Dave Ball
Situation- Lights went out at 9:15pm. The 3rd 4th OSU Buckeyes were driving down 7- 12 to Army and runner dove for the end zone. Ball crossed but his knee was down and the ball was marked at the 1 foot line. Lights went dark ..
Fast forward to Thursday Finals. We need to determine a winner before we start our semis and final rounds. We will do our best to replicate the situation for both Teams.
Situation- it is 2nd down, one foot to go OSU down by 5 pts, 2 mins left on the clock with both Teams having 2 time outs remaining. You have 2 plays left. The clock will start hen both Teams are set. What offensive play would call? Defensively, what do you expect? Do you call time out? How do you defend/stop the opposition?
Share your thoughts. What would you do? What advice would you offer? Only one will advance. Come watch!!

And for the 5th/6th grade Titans, Dawson Johnson's hustle and determination helped define the season.
In the regular season finale, Dawson's "never give up" attitude sparked a wild 4th quarter comeback victory.
He started off the 4th quarter with diving flag pull that saved a touchdown inside the five yard line. The Titans team defense made three consecutive stops and rallied with a TD to cut the Chiefs lead to 20-19.
With under three minutes to play, the Titans trailed by one without the ball. In big moments, the stars shine brightest. Dawson intercepted a pass and returned it for a TD to give the Titans their first lead of the 2nd half. Moments later, the Titans celebrated the win and now have momentum heading into the FNL playoffs.
Dawson's leadership was evident all season long. He helps with the defensive assignments and has a burning desire to compete. He doesn't tolerate complacency and strives to make his teammates better.
Off the football field, Dawson is an honor roll student, soccer all-star, and completes dozens of community service hours helping Coachella Valley non-profit groups.
Dawson Johnson is deserving of the Spotlight Player of the Week.
