XENIA — The Troy High School freshmen football team used a power offense and opportunistic defense and special teams to overpower the Xenia Buccaneers in its first road game of the year.
Good line blocking and strong running from Kobe Feltner, Shane Shoup, Jayden Culp-Bishop and Garrett Jones helped Troy to cruise to a 58-30 win. Despite losing teammate Sam Jackson to varsity play, Troy, directed by quarterback Jacob Adams, used a mixture of power rushing and speed to keep the Trojan offense humming most of the afternoon.
Although the defense struggled to contain the big play at times, it, along with special teams, supported the winning effort with two interceptions, a fumble recovery and a blocked punt. The Trojan freshmen are now 2-2 on the year.
