The Palisade Football team elected new captains this year. With being Junior Keden Everett, Junior Vincent Johnston, Junior Kaleb Reed and Senior Kaleb Wells. We had the opportunity to Interview a couple captains of the team about the football game. “We played tough and all the effort was there,” said Keden Everett. The game was focused on effort for the Bulldogs and they showcased that against Roosevelt. The matchup was rough, but Palisade showed up for the fight. The turnover we turned into a touchdown was my favorite part of the game” said Marcus Royster. There were many highlight pieces of the game but this shows from palisade defenses focus on the game in the second half. “Mistakes were made but we learned from them” also said by Marcus Royster. Mistakes are always made in every sport, but the best thing a team can do is learn from them and come back better for the next game.
