BAY MINETTE, Ala. — The Bay Minette City Council honored the undefeated Baldwin County High School Junior Varsity football team. The JV team ended the season with a record of 7-0 after beating Foley and Robertsdale twice, as well as wins over Gulf Shores, Spanish Fort, and Daphne.
Mayor Bob Wills presented the team with a banner to hang at the school which highlighted its perfect season. He thanked the team for working hard and for representing the school and community in such a great way.
Coach Nathan McDaniel said the team is primarily comprised of freshman players, as well as some sophomores.
“We are extremely proud of our JV kids for the hard work that they put in this football season. JV football can be challenging because these kids play on Monday nights and have to be back on Tuesday for the biggest practice day of the week for varsity,” McDaniel said.
"They did an incredible job this year of giving our varsity team a great look of the upcoming opponent every day at practice. This is an incredibly selfless group who wants to win above all else. Positions, status, and stats do not matter to them as long as our team gets the win. The majority will be sophomores next year.
"We will have a very young varsity football team but the future is very bright for BCHS. Varsity coaches also coach the JV team and McDaniel said he is, “Very proud of those guys for investing in all of our football players, not just the ones who play on Friday nights.”
