SALTILLO – One opposing defender stood between West Point running back Kadarius Forside five yards away from the goal line in the Green Wave’s opening offensive drive. The senior either could make an agile move around the Saltillo defender or lower his shoulder pads and make contact. He chose the latter.

The West Point defense is getting back into the swing of things. After getting gashed for 43 points in a district opening loss against the Oxford Chargers, who are No. 1 in District 1-5A as of Thursday, the Green Wave are washing away opposing offenses.
In the past three games, which were all wins, West Point (6-3; 3-1 District 1-5A) has pitched a shut out and held opponents to an average of nine points per game. The most points were given up to Center Hill – 21 total – in a 56-21 win by West Point.

His arm cast was removed the same morning as the game. An injury that he had dealt with for more than half a season after a preseason intra-squad scrimmage was no longer a worry. But Riley Pierce had a full plate in front of him as he was baptized in fire, learning the varsity-level quarterback skills on the fly.

With a new scoreboard and video board at McCallister Field, it was a no brainer for the high school and its organizations to find other uses outside of football games.
West Point High School Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) director Austin Baker and Central School assistant principal Brad Cox saw an innovative way to spread the FCA message and reach out to the community.

Hebron downs perfect Central

PHEBA — Nothing much can stop Hebron Christian’s Collin Moore on a Friday night — not even a broken rib.
Despite the nagging injury that occurred earlier in the season, a resilient Moore was in the opponent’s backfield constantly, and when his number was called on the offensive side of the ball, he delivered.
Eagle Head Coach David Foster joked after the game that if Moore weighed 40 pounds more, he would probably be outlawed. In short, Moore was a headache for a previously unbeaten Central Academy in all four quarters.

LAKE CORMORANT — The West Point Green Wave (6-3; 3-1 District 1-5A) has seemingly found its groove … and senior running back Kadarius Forside has done the same.
Forside rushed for three touchdowns in West Point’s 35-6 win over the winless Lake Cormorant Gators Friday in Lake Cormorant.
Forside scored touchdowns on carries of 47 and 8 yards to help West Point build a 28-0 lead at halftime of the District 1-5A game.

Injured Wave teammates not forgotten

When the West Point Green Wave enters the football field it is together, no matter the circumstances. And even before the game begins the team goes through a ritualistic dance.
After West Point tears through a paper sign designed by the cheerleaders and have locked arms around the 10-yard line, the team begins to sway from side-to-side, simulating the motions of a wave. It is done prior to every game.
The meaning behind the swaying is more than just pregame intimidation or the cool factor. It is about brotherhood.

Change of perception

Respect is earned on the gridiron. It is not handed out or given away without a cost.
The price is summed up with wins, hard-fought battles and effort at the completion of a game. And with respect being a perceived notion, for many, it can be difficult to change. For some programs, it can be an even more daunting task than many would want to take on.
However, the Oak Hill Raiders in the past three seasons, led by 12 seniors, have tackled this task.
