Team: Centura

Head Coach: HC Larry Baker:Team chemistry and work ethic – these kids are willing to grind extremely hard and have done so all summer. When we have gotten in spots of adversity, like having 10 fumbles in our first game, there was no panic – no finger pointing – no blame – nothing but an extreme confidence that we would win. When (in Centura’s opening win) Kimball took the lead with six minutes left in the third quarter, our kids had ZERO fear that they were going to lose the game. That comes from a solid belief in their coaches, in each other and in themselves. That belief is not born, it’s earned and they’ve earned it. Lastly, what’s worked these first two weeks, is that we have been able to run the ball and we have been effective at stopping the run.

We’re Better Than That: Coach Baker: It takes years to build a program and make it your own, and one of the things you have to do is build a cohesive staff. Cory Bohling, Scott Korinek, Roger Wooden Jr., and Chris Bode have done an amazing job in giving a 12 month commitment to Centura’s football program. We have good kids at Centura, and the 44 members of this football team will do what they are told to do, they will work as hard as they are asked to work. The important piece is to have a coaching staff that can tell them the right things to do and build positive relationships with them. This group of coaches has done that; therefore, the kids are more prepared on game day.

Team Leaders:

Jose Guzman is our starting QB and strong safety. Jose is a returning All-District player, a fabulous athlete and QB, he’s a do-it-all guy from the locker room to the weight room to the football field.

Kaleb Johnson is our starting Mike Linebacker and tailback. Played most of his career at offensive tackle and D-end, last year becoming an All-District player. Kaleb hasn’t missed a 6 a.m. workout in almost two years.

Peyton McCord is simply a football playing Jesse – he’s absolutely as tough as they come, a great wrestler, a great student and National Honor Society member and can flat find the football on defense as he was an All-District player last year.

Justin Lindell is 6-3, 245 pounds and one of the five fastest guys on the team. He is a force to be reckoned with on both sides of the ball.

Willy Packer at running back is a 13’6” pole vaulter having a great season on the football field. And, with a name like Willy how can you go wrong?

Centura Football Team Moves to 2-0

The Centura football team has not been 2-0 since 2003 and after a convincing win on Friday night vs. the Wood River Eagles, Centura has erased the long drought.

The Centurions defeated the Eagles by a resounding score of 53-6, making it the first time Centura has topped 50 points since 2000. The first half started out well with Centura building a 23-0 lead on the feet of Jose Guzman and Kaleb Johnson, both scored rushing touchdowns and Johnson added an interception return for a touchdown in the 1st quarter. Wood River did respond with a touchdown pass and the score was 23-6 at the half.

Centura came out on fire in the 2nd half scoring 30 points. Johnson added two more TD’s on the ground for the Centurions and Sophomore Noah Wooden added an interception for a TD and a long TD run.

It was a great night for the offense and defense. Centura had three 100 yard rushers on the night. Wooden had 105, Johnson had 104 and Guzman had 103. The defense held the Eagles to under 100 total yards, making it the second straight week they have held their opponent under 100 yards.
