Brashier provides an variety of sports that students can play, but Brashier lacks in sports like football, lacrosse, track, and tennis. However, being limited to these sports has not stopped Sophomore Hunter Dorris and Sophomore Isaiah Mccullough from playing a sport they love.

“Playing for another school is a lot harder than people would expect because you have to build a position for yourself with a new group of people and earn their respect,” says Dorris.

Dorris and Mccullough both play for the Woodmont Varsity Football team, Dorris is tight end and Mccullough is a linebacker. Both of them enjoy playing for Woodmont and would really like to join other sports at the school and attend other pep rallies.

“I didn’t do anything else with the school last year, but this year I want to run track,” says Mccullough.

The two  face the struggles of having to manage two sports since they both play basketball for Brashier as well.

“A lot of students need to understand how hard it is to attend one school and still be respected at another,” says Dorris.

Although Dorris finds it harder to make yourself a part of the team, Mccullough sees differently.

“I would definitely recommend it, especially if it’s a bigger school.  You feel the vibe of a big school and you can get  recognition from bigger colleges for scholarships,”  says Mccullough.

Both Dorris and Mccullough work very hard to have a spot on the Varsity team. The two believe that it’s better for Brashier to stick with sports we have and not have football team for now.

“First off, we don’t have enough students to have a full defense and offense, so we’d be a very small team. We also would have to have a lot more money to put towards the team,” says Mccullough.

    I play tennis for Hillcrest, so I can understand the fact that you have to make a name for yourself since many people don’t know you.
