Davison Igbinosun, Jaden Stewart, Ashan Harris. All key contributors to the 2021 Union football team.
With their significant stats gone from the roster in 2022 – like Stewart’s nearly 1,300 passing yards, Igbinosun’s combined 1,300-plus rushing and receiving yards, and Harris’s 88 tackles, with nine for a loss – a bunch of talented players who were behind them last year will try and pick up the slack.
The Farmers are nowhere near short of athletes, it’s a matter of having them see more snaps than they did last year.
But there’s also a bit of hunger. Last year, Union was considered a favorite in the North 2, Group 5 sectional playoffs, but their season ended prematurely when a number of COVID cases on the team prompted the school district to forfeit the game.
Forget the controversy that ensured. The team is focused on taking care of business this year.
