Four local youth are dominating the football field in Cornwall’s minor football spring league.
To ease travel issues coach Clint took a risk and drafted the four South Dundas kids, Brody Fairbairn, Charlie Gould, Aden Casselman, and Spencer Barclay, and now it is paying off in spades for the team.
Brody Fairbairn started the season on defence, but an injury to their team’s starting quarterback gave him a shot in the spotlight, and he seized the opportunity.
Fairbairn ran with it, going undefeated during the regular season 7-0, throwing for four touchdowns, and running for four.
Casselman and Gould (the two-headed monster ) are a force to be reckoned with on the line both playing defence and offence.
Gould is turning into a QB’s nightmare and a threat as a wide receiver.
He is using his hands of gold to catch touchdowns, and then on defence he is driving opposition QBs to the ground, averaging three sacks a game.
Aden Casselman is the second half of the two-headed monster on the defensive line. Casselman is always coming from the opposite side of the line to give the running backs and QBs no back door when Gould is coming for a sack.
Casselman is averaging a sack and a half per game with his famous bull rush style. He also prides himself as an offensive line man, filling holes to give Fairbairn time to make a play.
The fourth of the South Dundas group is the youngest of the team, but you wouldn’t know it by his fearless running style.
Spencer Barclay is often taking on kids two years older and twice his weight, darting and deeking would be tacklers, leaving them to wonder how they missed him.
The galloping ghost also lines up at WR to catch first down passes. The boys and their team now face their toughest test of the year.
Their 7-1 record earned them a bye to the final coming up this Sunday, June 24th. No doubt the local Cornwall youth will not want the hardware to leave their city.
