Raines to visit Trinity.

9 · 02 · 22

Last week was filled with excitement as the talent of Northeast Florida clashed tremendously. From running backs stretching the field for long productive runs to linebackers intercepting passes and returning them for touchdowns, the highlights from last Friday night were nothing short of sensational. Each week, the most competitive game will be chosen to receive the JEAG Sports game of the week spotlight but  as we all know, there is always an exception to the rule. As we get deeper into the season, the match ups just keep getting better. This week, the Trinity Christian Academy Conquerors will host the widely known Raines Vikings in a 7:30 pm match up. What makes this match up so special is the fact that both of these teams have a Times Union Super 11 selection player suiting up in their uniform. 

Trinity Christian Academy- Treyaun Webb

Webb is a 4 star running back with super star quality. He is a patient runner with good speed and the ability to finish strong plays. Last season, he finished with 148 carries for nearly 1,200 yards and 11 touchdowns. Last week against a highly talented Ed White Commander team, Webb carried the ball 18 times for 189 yards and 3 touchdowns. With his size at 6’1, 210 lbs and a resume as impressive as his, it’s fairly easy to tell that this season is going to be one filled with explosive highlights.

Raines- Kenton Kirkland

Kirkland is the type of defensive back that might get bored on that island all by himself. Standing at  6’2, 180 lbs, he has the potential to make it hard for opposing Quarterbacks to gain confidence, while making it easy for them to stay away from his side of the field. The highly recruited cornerback has long arms, good recovery speed and is not afraid to step up to the challenge and make tackles. Being athletically gifted and having what we call “grit” are two assets that Kenton Kirkland can bring to the table that just can not be coached or taught. With attributes like these, it’s obvious he will be a key focal point for the success of this Viking defense.

Last week, Trinity Christian found themselves in the midst of a slug fest with both of their talented running backs, (Webb and Rogers) rushing for nearly 200 yards and 3 touchdowns each. However, their defense was tested, giving up 40 points and nearly 350 yards rushing but still coming out on top. Raines was in a nail biter as well picking up the 19- 13 victory over Monsignor Pace led by Junior running back Mark Miller as he made his presence felt rushing for 118 yards and 2 touchdowns on 18 carries. Both of these high-powered programs started the 2022 season 1-0 and unfortunately for one, the streak will come to an end.
