Summer conditioning ends as the Fall football season begins for the Sebastian Middle School Eagles football team

The fall season for the Sebastian Middle School Eagles football team begins on Thursday, August 1st, with all the other teams from the St. Johns County Middle School Athletic Association.  With the start of the season just days away, it’s time to put behind us all the off season training activity that Austin Reed put in for strength, skills and conditioning to enhance his game on offense and defense.  There were hours each week put in to strength training at the gym, weekly quarterback skills training with Coach Steve Harden from St. Augustine High School, and other speed, agility and conditioning training sessions each week of the Summer.

Below are two videos featuring Austin’s quarterback training with Coach Harden at Plantation Park in Fruit Cove, as well as a video from the Donovin Darius NFL Youth Combine held at Everbank Field in Jacksonville, FL.

With Spring football well in the past, Austin Reed looks forward to the Fall season…

The Spring Jamboree is long in the past as Austin has been preparing strongly during the off, Summer season.  Since we never gave a recap on the St. Johns Middle School Athletic Association Spring Game for the Sebastian Middle School Eagles football team, we would like to play a little catch up and feature a few plays in Sebastian’s close loss to the Pacetti Bay Middle School Wildcats football team.

Sebastian Middle School loss a close Spring game on Saturday, May 18th, by a score of 22 – 18.  Failure to convert on extra points and the inability to stop the Wildcats from reaching the end zone with less than one minute to play hurt Sebastian’s chances for the win.  Down by 4 points with less than 50 seconds to go, Austin Reed, Quarterback, drove the team, on three consecutive pass completions, down the field from their own 20 yard line to reach the Wildcats 15 yard line.  With one play left, the Eagles were unable to get off a final pass for a chance to win the game.

Featured below are a few of the notable plays for Austin Reed.  We have included two offensive plays where Austin completed two very well thrown balls during the game, as well as two defensive plays with Austin playing middle linebacker.  On one hit, Austin makes a ball jarring hit on a tight end releasing off  the line attempting to catch a well thrown ball.
