Fruit Cove Middle School flexes their strength against the Sebastian Middle School Eagles football team.

On Thursday, October 18th, Austin Reed (#7) and the Sebastian Middle School Eagles football team faced the second place, 6 – 1 Fruit Cove Middle School Flyers football team.  After the Flyers jumped out to a 7 – 0 lead in the first quarter, the Eagles played hard and did not allow another point until the middle of the third quarter.  The Flyers finally wore down the Eagles defense and added an additional three touchdowns to end the game with 26 points.  The Eagles refused to give up gaining a 5 yard touchdown run by Andre Robinson with time expiring in the game.  Austin’s two point conversion pass was dropped in the end zone after an elusive scramble and great throw to his wide receiver.  This play has been included in the following videos.  The final score of the game was 26 – 6.

Austin played quarterback, middle linebacker and special teams during the game against Fruit Cove Middle School.  There is also a video featuring a great blitz rush by Austin causing the quarterback for Fruit Cove to rush his pass and throw an interception to linebacker Sebastian Jones.  I have also included a video of one of the best crack-back blocks I have seen in youth football.  This occurred in the third quarter when running back Andre Robinson reversed the field and Thomas Adkinson (#77 – Red) assists the run blocking with a crack-back block and absolutely crushes #64 for Fruit Cove.  The next game for the Sebastian Middle School Eagles football team is this Thursday, October 25th @ 4:30 p.m. at Landrum Middle School located in Ponte Vedra, FL.

The Pacetti Bay Middle School Wildcats football team take down Austin Reed and the Sebastian Middle School Eagles from St. Augustine

Well, this certainly wasn’t the result the coaching staff, Austin Reed (#7) and the rest of the players from the Sebastian Middle School Eagles football team from St. Augustine, FL wanted following their game against the Pacetti Bay Wildcats football team.  The 34 – 0 loss dose not show the fight the Eagles put up against their cross county nemesis at Nease High School Stadium, the former home of Quarterback Tim Tebow.  Austin played quarterback, middle linebacker, and special teams during the game.

Highlights included in the following videos are a kickoff team coverage where Austin runs over the return blocker and runs down the field to make a tackle, a first down pass to Andre Robinson and a nice run to pick up a first down where Austin lines up at running back in a power formation.  Other strong performances in the game were provided by Martrell Storey, RB (#9), who gained significant yardage as running back and Terrance Lovett, OL/DL (#55) who had an exceptional game blocking at left offensive guard and anchoring the middle of the defensive line.  The next game is schedule for Thursday, October 18th against the Fruit Cove Middle School Flyers at Plantation Park in St. Johns, FL.

Sebastian Middle School loses a tough game to Buddy Taylor Middle School from Palm Coast, FL

Last Wednesday, October 3rd, Austin Reed and the Sebastian Middle School Eagles (St. Augustine, FL) lost a tough fought Homecoming game to the Buddy Taylor Eagles out of Palm Coast, FL 24 – 12.  Austin started Quarterback and Middle Linebacker for the game.  After receiving a hard hit to the under part of his elbow in the second quarter, Austin was knocked out of the game on offense, defense and special teams.  He returned to the game late in the third quarter on the defensive side of the ball at Middle Linebacker.  Quarterback Trevor Stevens stepped in to replace Austin on offense and did a great job under the pressure of the Buddy Taylor run and pass rush.

The next game is schedule on Thursday, October 11th against the wide open passing game of the Pacetti Bay Wildcats Middle School football team to be held at 5:00 p.m. @ the Nease High School Varsity Football Stadium located off Highway US 1.  Austin is scheduled to start at Middle Linebacker and Quarterback for this game.

Austin Reed and the Sebastian Middle School football team loses to Indian Trails Middle School (Palm Coast, FL)

For the fifth game of the season (held on Wednesday, September 26th), Austin Reed and the Sebastian Middle School (St. Augustine) Eagles football team ran into a very physical Indian Trails Middle School (Palm Coast) Mustangs football team with the game being held at Matanza’s High School in Palm Coast, FL.  There is not a whole lot to report about the game that was heavily dominated by Indian Trails who finished the game with a 41 – 0 win.

Austin played quarterback for the complete game managing excellent ball control for a Sebastian running game that was unable to get in the end zone.  Austin also played middle linebacker, long snap on the punt team and played on both kick-off and receiving special teams.  The Eagles now fall to 2 -3 on the season looking forward to a home game on Thursday, October 4th, against the Buddy Taylor Middle School Eagles (Palm Coast) at Joe Pomar Field in St. Augustine.
