Girls flag football season begins

Jupiter High School’s girls flag football team has entered their 2024 season starting off with three wins and five losses.

They are currently working on flag pulling techniques to help stop opposing offenses from scoring. However, the team excels in reducing the amount of time the quarterback (QB) has to throw the ball,

“We need to work on flag pulling because many of the times we’ve gotten scored on has been because we missed [flags],” Carson Proctor, junior, said. “We’re good at rushing and limiting the time the QB has on the play.”

This year, a new coaching staff was brought in with Josh Brooks as head coach, leading the lady warriors.

“I love the new coaching staff. It’s a good change,” Gianna Granda, junior, said. “He’s brought a lot more positive energy to the team than in the past and it’s made [football] more enjoyable for everybody.”

Kaitlyn Marcoullier, senior, feels that Brooks does a good job at letting the girls have fun, but also controlling the team’s rowdiness. 

“[Brooks] gives a good balance of fun and competitiveness and gets us to focus in when we need to, which is something we need to work on,” Marcoullier said.

Compared to last year, Proctor thinks the defense has improved on not giving up the deep ball as easily.

“We are protecting the space behind us while on defense a lot better than last year by holding a deeper line and using different safety formations,” Proctor said. 

The team still has high hopes for performing well in the rest of the regular season and in the postseason.

“We’ve had a couple of tough games but we’re gonna come back stronger for the second half of the season,” Marcoullier said. “If we do well the rest of the season, we’ll have a good chance to make the playoffs.”
