On Saturday, Sept. 10, during the 51st annual Holy Bowl, Jesuit High School Sacramento’s varsity football team defeated cross-town rival Christian Brothers High School 21-7.
Jesuit quickly asserted themselves late in the first quarter with a touchdown to start off the scoring. By the fourth quarter, the Marauders were firmly in the lead.
“It was a tough game,” said Head Coach Marlon Blanton. “It was a tough, competitive game. We fought, they fought, and we came out victorious. Proud of the way our guys played; we made too many mistakes and if we eliminate our mistakes I think our team is going to be really good. But anytime you win the Holy Bowl it’s a great win.”
Running back Jagger Shaddix ’23 contributed one touchdown and 17 yards on six carries. He praised the team’s defense while noting the need to play better.
“I’m happy we got the win, but we could’ve played a lot better,” Jagger said. “We have a lot to work on, but I felt like we played really good defense, so I’m glad we got the win.”
