Football Rocks fall to Male

The Rocks’ season came to a close in the Class 6-A, Region Three final at Male.

“We’ll go back to work and we’ll go back to work hard,” Trinity head coach Bob Beatty H’03 told The Courier-Journal.

Signature victories this season came over Carmel (Ind.), Cathedral (Ind.) and St. Xavier. Fans will also remember ESPN coverage at Marshall Stadium.  “My teammates and I played our hearts out,” slot receiver Drew Chandler said of the loss to Male. “Even though the game didn’t go the way we wanted it to, I still love each and every one of them.”

Trinity’s 2014 season looks very promising. The 2013 squad included nearly 50 juniors and 50 sophomores, many of whom started or gained valuable playing time.

The JV Rocks were undefeated against the same schedule played by the varsity. The freshman team notched impressive victories against teams from Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio, with an average victory margin of 31 points.
