The boys junior varsity football season is coming to an end with a current record of 2-5-2. They have one last game left against Fairfax High School.

Coach Moss has been coaching the J.V. football team for 19 seasons here at Venice. When he started, there was a larger coaching staff, but those numbers dwindled and now there is just Moss and an assistant coach.

“I just teach them the skills necessary to win and put them in the right place to make the right play whether it’s making the tackle or coverage that’ll lead to an interception,” said Coach Moss.

J.V Captain Lynale Moore is an athlete that starts on both defense and offense. He starts on offense as running back and on defense, he’s a safety.

” I know I can contribute to the team as I continue to improve every day on the field,” said Moore. “We just have to learn the plays, get stronger, have discipline and dedication in everything we do.”

Jaheem Jillette, who plays corner, safety and starting quarterback, is confident in the team’s progress.

“ We can win the last games on the schedule as long as we continue to get stronger, play more aggressive and make plays,” said Jillette.
