The Sedro-Woolley High School football team was hoping for a shot at playoffs, but two key losses ended the dream.

“I am disappointed with how our season is ending because we had high hopes this year,” said Sedro-Woolley senior receiver Ethan Doctor.

The 2021 football season has been up and down for the Cubs, who are now 6-3 and lost three consecutive games. The three straight losses were a low point of the season, but there have been other bumps in the road for the team.

“Injuries have caused multiple players on this team to be unable to play in games,” Doctor said.

Many important players on the team were knocked out of games for multiple weeks resulting in lineup changes. Besides injuries, COVID has played a big role in limiting the Cubs season.

“Covid has caused us to miss a week of practice and a game,” said junior cornerback Jakai Jordan.

Sedro-Woolley was scheduled to play Archbishop Murphy on Oct. 1, but the game was cancelled due to covid reasons. The game was rescheduled for Nov. 5, the last game of the season for the Cubs. And when that date came the team pulled out one last victory in a 15-7 win against Archbishop Murphy.

The season has seen its ups and downs and it has been disappointing at times, however, the players still look back on the season with some positivity.

“Although I may be disappointed in how far we made it this year and how we have played in these last games, I am also very grateful to have played with such a great group of guys,” said senior quarterback Tyson Brown. “Every single one of them wants to be there and everyone tries their very

best every play. The difference between us and other teams is we are all great friends and when the times get tough, we pick each other up instead of putting them down.”
