The junior varsity Tarpon football team improved to 2-0 in district and 5-2 overall as they defeated the Grulla Gators last week, 26-0.

On defense, the Tarpons were led by Cesar Herbert, Issac Martinez, Christian Hoshino, Luis Villareal, and Luis San Juan who ended the game with an interception. The blocking of the offensive line of the Tarpons led to several scores in the game. The line consisted of Ruben Silva, Cesar Manzano, Kevin Martinez, Fernando Rivera, Frank Alvarez, Issac Martinez and Juan Herrera.
