Thayer High School’s Junior Varsity had an undefeated football season. The boys went 7-0 on their games. “It has been a while since this has happened,” said Marc Pitts THS Principal.

“The biggest game this season would have to have been when we versed Liberty,” said Coach Eric Metcalf. “We were down 20-8 at halftime, when we put Jayce Haven (a freshman) in as quarterback. The team then went on to victory when they tied up the game with 50 seconds left and then they went for a 2 point conversion to put them up 2,” said Metcalf.

Some of these players play both JV and varsity. Metcalf said the main boys who play both are Jayce Haven, Logan Doss, Bobby Dale, all are freshman and Cody Brosh who is a sophomore. Metcalf said many other boys assist in playing with the Varsity team.

“I am very proud of this team because the players could come out and adjust to  play a different position every game.The boys work very hard to fight against and for each other,” said Metcalf.

Arthur Tate said ” This season went by really fast but we had the best season possible.”

“The JV players practice against their varsity team which helps them prepare to play better teams, and have more competition,”said Tate.

Jayce Haven said, ” This season was a blast and getting to see how different JV and Varsity games were is what helped me the most on JV.”

The Bobcats played Houston, Liberty, Mountain Grove, Cabool, Ava, Willow, and Salem this season. Their future is looking bright for the 2018 football season.
