(Lakewood Ranch, FL)- The LRHS junior varsity (JV) football team ended their season 1-7.  

“I feel like the season went pretty well,” said head coach Alex Michaud. “It didn’t go as well on our overall record, but we got better every single week.”

Michaud is thankful for the help of his second coach, Joseph Cuervo.

“Coach Cuervo helped out tremendously throughout the whole season,” said Michaud. “Without him, I don’t know how we would have gotten through this season.”

Michaud listed both the challenges and positives of this season, though he believed that overall, it was a great season.

“Some of the difficulties were only having two coaches, but the positives definitely outweighed the challenges,” Michaud said.

Throughout the season, Michaud has had the opportunity to grow with his team and help the players reach their goals by moving some up to varsity for the last two games of the season.

“Coaching football means the world to me,” remarked Michaud. “There are a lot of life lessons within the sport that I enjoy being able to teach the players.”

Michaud loves being a part of the players’ growth, both on the field and in life lessons.

“It’s exciting to see these young kids learning and growing each week,” said Michaud.

It was a goal of Michaud to improve the team’s legacy and reputation. In doing so, he created a family between the players and coaches.

“I love seeing the brotherhood that has been created between the players,” said Michaud. “As they continue their time in high school, as well as in the future, I hope they remember everything they have learned.”
