All good things must come to an end, and so was the case for the Saint Joseph Indians’ Football team two weeks ago. The team fell to a 6-6 Logansport, losing by 29 points as a wrap to their season. Ending their season with a 3-8 record, the Indians were fortunately able to go through an entire season despite the current pandemic. 

The season consisted of 1,620 rushing yards gained, with 5.6 average rushing yards, and 1672 passing yards gained, and an average. In total, the team had 3,295 yards gained during the season, and averaged 19 points per game. The team’s leader in rushing and receiving was Asante Anglin, with a combined 1,337 yards. Anglin also led the team in individual scoring with 78 total points and 13 touchdowns. The team’s quarterback, Matthew Eck, led the team with 1,512 passing yards, 2 touchdowns, and 12 points in individual scoring.

The special teams personnel was led by Alex Ortiz in Kickoff Return yards with 218 yards total. The blackshirts defense was led by Mattux Tarwacki with 35 solo tackles, 12 tackles for losses, and one two point conversion in a playoff game against the Clay Colonials. 

All in all, the Indians’ season did not produce the desired results of the players and coaches. However, the team was grateful for the opportunity to play a full season and be able to enjoy the sport they love.
