Great game Milton. Enjoy your bye week and then go get Lassiter and Walton. The TV production gave more screen time to the announcers than the actual football players! Are ya kidding me!!

Lassiter at Milton really looks like a great game next week. This just in…Lassiter can play a little defense and run the ball too. Aside from 1 long run of around 65 yards, Jones was held in check. Stopping 2 good backs could be a bit tougher then stopping 1 though. Will be fun to watch.
