This weekend Centennial hosted their annual homecoming festivities and the entire weekend was a huge success! Throughout the week, students participated and showed their school spirit by wearing creative outfits and decorating the halls to reflect various time periods to match the theme, “A Wrinkle in Time.” The midweek celebratory activities carried over into the Homecoming Parade on Friday afternoon that was packed with floats of Centennial’s athletic teams, clubs and junior knights programs that passed out candy to families lined along Scott Rd.
All of these activities led up to the Centennial Knights Homecoming game against Dunwoody where the Knights earned a victory for all of their returning fans. From the start of the game, the Knights offense came out and were firing on all cylinders against the Wildcats. Cal Dickie started off the 49-6 route on a six-yard touchdown run in the first quarter, but Max Brosmer led the high scoring attack with six touchdown passes on the night! Both Richard Shaw and Drake Mason connected on two of those scores apiece while Freddie Fairley and Rekevian”Rock” Mathis each hauled in one touchdown pass. Shaw looked special as he turned multiple short passes into long yardage gains and Mason showcased his ability to go up and catch the football over defenders on fade routes in the corner of the end zone.
The high powered Knights offense was aided with good field position thanks to the exceptional work of their defense that was led by Sylvester Mathis and Kevon Angry. Angry came up with a huge interception just before the half to stop one of Dunwoody’s only true chances to score. Mathis name was called all night as he made tackle after tackle to stifle the Dunwoody running game. This win sets up the Knights in the position they hoped to be in the region standings after a 0-2 start.
This upcoming week could be the toughest test that the Knights have faced since their opening games against Warner Robins and Roswell. When Centennial travels to Johns Creek, the Knights will take on a team that they are tied with atop the region standings where both teams sit at 5-0. This game will determine the number one seed for Region 7-AAAAAA heading into the state playoffs. Be sure to come out and support the Knights by purchasing tickets to the game on our website.
