Solomon Patton:

"My first game against Foley High School went well. We came out and jumped on them fast. They had a pretty young defense and we got the ball first and coach called an 18 sweep and I ran and got the ball from the quarterback and put my foot in the ground and my wide receivers threw some good blocks and I just took off and made one defender miss then went to the house for 85 yards to make it 7-0. We stopped them and got the ball back and on 2nd down I caught a bubble route then ran for 27 yards for another score 14-0. They really started playing and our defense was not playing good. Foley ran the ball the entire time maybe passed it a couple times but not much and they just started scoring so we went back and forth. With like four or five minutes left our other wide out caught a slant and we got up 31-29. Then they got to the 40 yard line and tried to kick a field goal and there kicker missed and I thought he was about to make it because he can really kick.
