On September 17, the Flying L’s took on the Olympic Heights Lions in an away game, blowing them out 40-0. 

Head Coach Richard Dunbar felt his team did exactly what they needed to do.

“Olympic Heights is a great team, don’t get me wrong. They are very well coached and athletic in a lot of places, but we’re good, too,” Coach Dunbar said. “I think we were the better team and the boys did exactly what they should’ve, which was to go out, execute, and perform at a very high level.”

Coach Dunbar also gave his thoughts on the Flying L’s first Thursday game and how they are preparing for the short break.

“It doesn’t matter if it’s a Friday, Saturday, Monday, or Thursday game,” he said. “Got to prepare for every opponent, it doesn’t matter who you are. We will play to our strengths, put the athletes on the field, and see what they can do.”

Sophomore quarterback Jadyn Glasser talked about his work ethic going into the game.

“We went into the game knowing we were going to beat the team, so we just went in, executed, and made it look easy.”

Glasser also gave his outlook on the season ahead.

“I think we’re going to do well, we have a couple hard games coming up soon. However, I think we’ll have a good shot at the playoffs.”

Coach Dunbar also spoke about the game against the Western Wildcats, which was marked as a loss due to the cancellation of the game in the second quarter due to lightning.

“Western is a powerhouse. For the boys to come out and perform the way they did, and still have it credited as a loss, that’s what you hate and don’t want for them,” Dunbar said. “However, to see the guys perform the way they performed against a team like Western, it’s good for me to see.”
