PREP FOOTBALL – West Point passes first test beating Curry 21-7 in jamboree game


CURRY – In the famous words of UFC ring announcer Michael Buffer, “It’s time!” But instead of strapping on gloves in the middle of the octagon, the West point Warriors and the Curry Yellowjackets are strapping on helmets and pads for one of the last fall jamboree games before the season officially starts.


The Warriors had an impressive outing in the jamboree but also found room for improvement as they move forward and get ready to face Hayden when they open the season August 29th.


The varsity Warriors played the entirety of the first half and racked up some big numbers on the ground as well as through the air Thursday night against Curry, easily securing a 21-7 victory.


Kobe Smith carried the ball 11 times for 32 tough yards and was rewarded for effort when he found pay dirt on his fourth carry, scampering in from 27 yards out. He also had a stellar 40 yard touchdown run that was called back due to an illegal block in the back.


Senior quarterback Bryant Farley also did his part in the 14-0 first half varsity showing. He tucked the ball under his right arm 10 times for 83 yards helped in part by a 44 yard run on 2nd and 24 following a holding penalty. Farley was also 4 for 8 for 66 yards.


Cameron Moore added a 27 yard touchdown run.


West Point was also very solid on defense, forcing two fumbles. The first was recovered by Kyle Butler, who also recovered a fumble on offense and the second was covered up by Delton Cook.


Jacob Perez also picked off a Yellowjacket pass and Trent Campbell notched a sack.
