II semifinals. Key players: • Randy Schroeder: Quarterback is back, looking to improve on last year's 22 touchdowns and nearly 2,000 passing yards. • Demitri Allison: Senior will be Eagles' top receiver while also helping out at defensive back. First-year SouthLake Christian head coach Geoff "Bub" O'Donnell hasn't had much of a learning curve since taking over the program, having been the Eagles' offensive coordinator the past two years. "The transition hasn't really been much about coaching, but learning to be an administrator," he said. "It's been a challenge, but I knew that coming into it." Running the…

If I could describe the last game in one word it would be FINALLY. Finally, the offense started to click and play up to our potential. Finally, the Storm did not turn the ball over in the redzone. Finally, the Storm team played as a team. Scoring came quick and swift for the Storm offense who was held to a minimal 14 points last week versus Cabarrus. The Storm threw for over 300 yards and ran for around 100. The receivers did a great job of picking up YAC(yards after the catch) Saturday. The running backs did good when called upon and kept the offense balanced. The key to success, however, was the offensive line, who gave me plenty of time to throw and opened up great running lanes. The defense only allowed 6 points, and the coaches did a great job play calling. Although it was a solid game…
The outcome of the past two games was not what we wished for or expected. Versus Tennessee we gave up a quick 27 points and three fumbles. Despite the early adversity, the Storm regrouped and the defense shut out the Silverbacks for thirty-four minutes. The offense scored 25 points but came up short on the final drive. During the Asheville game, neither team gave up and the Storm once again came up short on the last drive. Although the Storm lost two games in a row, there is a lot that can be learned and a lot to build on for upcoming games. Even though in both games the Storm got off to a bad start and found themselves behind, they did not stop fighting and clawed their way back to put themselves in positions to win the game. When everything is going great and you are leaving teams eating…

The Lake Norman Storm defeated the Cabarrus Stallions 14-6 in a hard fought win. Although the Storm came out with the win, there are a lot of improvements that can be made. On the positive side of things, the Storm had no problem moving the ball and had a good mix of run vs. pass. Rushing for close to 80 yards on 13 carries, and throwing for close to 160 yards on 15 attempts, the Storm's offense marched up and down the field with ease. However, the woes came inside the redzone, where the Storm turned the ball over three times. A fumble and turnover on downs halted the drives three times within the 20 yard line. Had the Storm been able to capitalize in the redzone, the score would have been different. Although they came out with the win, the Storm have many improvements to make and are looking…
