Looking to Throw

WITH JACKSON LUNSFORD in pursuit, Orrick’s Blake McAfee attempts a halfback option pass during the Bearcats' Nov. 8 season-ending home loss to North Shelby in the District 2 8-man football playoffs.

ORRICK – After Orrick’s 54-6 Nov. 8 loss to visiting North Shelby in the District 2 playoffs, Orrick coach Matt Hertzog is looking to the 2020 season.

“Sometimes, you’ve got to pick yourself up, dust the dirt off and keep moving,” he said.

The Bearcats (7-3) will look to keep moving with the loss of six seniors to graduation next spring: Aaron Brooke, Sam Kaczmarek, Blake McAfee, Gabe McAfee, Devin Opoka and Seth Sloan.

“They will be big shoes to fill,” Hertzog said.
