This Cody Middle School football season started out with a snap (of some bones that is). AJ Bauster 8th grade, broke his arm, and, Grady McCarten 7th grade, broke his foot in the Powell scrimmage this past Saturday the 7th of September. Both of them are out for the whole season as of right now. The score was not kept during the scrimmage. Hopefully this strain of bad injuries will not persist. There are two games in the first official week of the season. The first being at home against Lovell, A teams only on Thursday Sept. 12 at 5:00PM. The second in Worland against Worland both A and B teams will be playing on Saturday Sept. 14th at 9:30AM

The coaching staff this year consists of: coach Jake Tuten, the offensive coordinator for 7th grade, coach John Corbin, the offensive coordinator for 8th grade, and coach Jake Williams, the defensive coordinator for the 7th grade. Last but not least coach Rodney Miears, the defensive coordinator for the 8th grade. After being asked if football is worth the risk, Jace Jarrett says that ”Football is fun because of the risk!“. AJ Bauster, ”Yes, if you love it and love to play it is worth the risk, as long as you realize there is a risk and are ok with it.” Grady McCarten also agreed saying ”I would still play football with the risk of getting hurt.“ This Thursday there was a game against Lovell. Only 7th and 8th grade A teams played. The scores were Cody 22- Lovell 20 in the 8th grade game and Cody 44- Lovell 20 in The 7th grade game.
