Manassas Mutiny, a traveling team of the Northern Virginia Youth Football League, started the season strong by defeating the Fredericksburg Colts, 40-6 in the season’s opening game Saturday at Parkside Middle School.
The team, historically known for their strong ground game, did not disappoint; thanks to a solid offensive line and outstanding performances by the quarterback, Kendall Davis and running back Ricky Slade Jr.
The team has also successfully incorporated an array of offensive plays through the air as well.
Davis’ strong, accurate arm, along with precision route running by the wide receivers, enabled the Mutiny to keep the Colts off balance on defense.
Defense has always been the foundation of the Manassas Mutiny, and they continue to shine, holding the Colts to only a single score.
Steady pressure by the defensive line and numerous blitz packages by linebackers, kept the Colts’ quarterback on the run all day.
Future opponents are sure to have their hands full throughout the season with the Manassas team's linebackers' ability to threaten multiple interceptions.
Special teams made their own contribution with a kickoff return for a touchdown, and quality kick coverage allowed them to win the battle of field position as well.
The Manassas Mutiny Pee Wee Youth football team is made up of local area youth between the ages of 10 and 12. In 2009 they traveled to Florida and earned 3rd place in the National tournament. The 2011 Manassas Mutiny are looking forward to a successful season, and plan on returning to Manassas with the title of National Champions.
The team is now accepting sponsorships to help with funds for new equipment and travel expenses. For more information on helping this youth program please contact Coach Ricky Slade at email@example.com. Your support will be appreciated.
