One major contributor to the Titans’ success has been senior linebacker Carter McManes. He’s among the team leaders in total tackles (36), tackles for loss (5) and had an interception on the season.
After a season-opening 18-0 shutout win over Westminster, Blessed Trinity went on a two-game losing streak. However, the Titans have rebounded with two consecutive victories over White County (30-0) and Woodward Academy (27-17) last Friday.
“Carter has been the emotional leader of our football team this year,” head coach Tim McFarlin said. “He’s a kid who refuses to be outworked in practice, the weight room or a game. With our team being so young this year, it was critical that we had someone step in and lead by example. Carter has been that guy.”
Off the field, McManes has shown strength supporting his mother through cancer treatments. “Carter hasn’t lost his focus or expected anyone to feel sorry for him,” McFarlin said. “He’s an exceptional son, student, teammate and football player.
The Titans will return to action on Oct. 11 at Decatur.
