Eagles Host Little River/ Academy

by Mike Organ

Lexington will host the Little River/ Academy Bumblebees Friday night in a matchup of Green and Gold teams. Academy fell to Lexington’s district rival Rogers last week 56-33. The Bees fell to Waco Reicher 34-21 in the opening week’s action.

Academy has six offensive and six defensive starters returning from a 3-7 team. All three wins came in district action that included state-finalist Cameron. In the offensive, starters are offensive linemen Chad Lunde, Kevin Abercrombie, and Jessie Valero. Quarterback Grant Glendenning did not start last year but is being counted on to provide the leadership needed from the position.

Lexington won last year’s game 33-0. The Bees have always been a tough game for Lexington as they seemingly play their best against the Eagles.
