Cougar youth gridders finish unbeaten

The South Decatur Cougar youth football senior team completed a perfect season by defeating Madison 57-8 Saturday for the championship.

The Senior team, composed of fifth and sixth graders from South Decatur, went 7-0 on the season, out-scoring their opponents in a combined season total of 252-52. This is the Cougars’ second straight championship, also winning last season’s title over Milan. They have a two year record of 14-2.

“This team really came together and played as close to perfect as you can play,” said head coach Troy Meadows, “especially in the championship game. They played great defense all season and put points on the board when they needed. It was a really special season. I am proud of the way the boys improved at every practice.”
