Fort Hall Little League football
The Fort Hall Braves got their first win of the season defeating the Pocatello Raiders 6 to 0. “I got so excited for the boys I forgot who scored the touchdown,” said Coach Eddy Kniffin. Russell Bache, Zade Larkin, Shilo Edmo, Andre Sanchez, Juan Sanchez and Javon Kaiyou played very tough and the rest of the boys followed. “They have been working hard and deserve the win,” he said.
The Fort Hall Warriors lost a close battle to the Aberdeen Tigers 12 to 0. Kniffin said the older boys just need to put a little more effort into it. After going 4 and 2 last season they feel as if they show up they’re going to win but that isn’t the case. They are going to win some games this season and learning to be a winner takes time and effort. “And that is what our program is about,” Kniffin continued. “Learning the game of football and all the life values that go with it.
