Lake Howell football has come to an end. The Hawks ended the season with a record of 3-7. Lake Howell students are very proud of the team and how well they stuck together, even through tough times, which included 3 games that were barely lost in overtime. The boys ended the season with a very close game against the Oviedo Lions but came up short.
Ashlee Trenholm (Senior): “I attended almost every game last year and almost every game this year, and the spirit and fight in this team is exponentially higher than last year’s team. The homecoming game against Oviedo was one of the best football games I’ve ever attended. We just barely lost and, if you ask me, the refs blew it for us.” The Hawks lost 35-30 and almost scored a touchdown on their last drive of the game.
Kenyonta Skinner #13 (Senior) was the team’s leading scorer but got hurt halfway through the season. His recovery has been going well. The game against Oviedo was also senior night, and Kenyonta came in the game with his injury for one play. He managed to score, but the touchdown was overturned due to a flag on the play. “During the play I felt my knee bugging me but, as weird as it sounds, I had never felt so ready for a game in my life.”
Chase Bennett #19 (Junior) had over 200 all purpose yards and a touchdown, “As proud as I am of my performance. The disappointment in the loss is greater. I’m still very thankful for this team and very proud of the season.” Chase Bennett played his best game of the season against the Lions.
Overall, the students of Lake Howell are very proud of their team for sticking it through together this season and working their hardest.
