Larchmont Charter football has bounce-back season, fundraising

The Larchmont Charter School (LCS) middle school football program finished its Foundation for Interscholastic Youth Athletics (FIYA) League schedule 3-4, narrowly missing out on the playoffs.

Not in picture: Wyatt Greenwood, Jacob Milder and Justin Halprin.

However, under the direction of second-year coach Avery Watts, the team of LCS eighth graders showed marked improvement, competing in the seven-on-seven middle-school league.

That improvement starts with actual wins — the Timberwolves had three more than they did in their winless 2018 FIYA campaign, with quarterback Reece Frankel and wide receiver Finn McConnaghy leading a potent offensive attack that, among other results, led to a 33-0 win over Everest Value School back in early October.

Other standouts for Timberwolves Football included Faleb Lindo, who was among the FIYA leaders in sacks, and Samual Hahn, who was one of the league’s most effective blockers.

Next year’s LCS middle school football program promises to be even better, with LCS Selma campus’ explosive 7th grade team finishing 4-2-1 and advancing to this year’s FIYA playoffs.
