The Havelock junior varsity football team practices just like the varsity team, getting the same instructions from the same coaches.

No wonder they’ve had the same success as the varsity team.

The Rams capped their second straight 10-0 season by beating West Craven 68-6 Thursday at Havelock High.

“It’s a tremendous accomplishment for these kids and to this coaching staff,” Havelock coach Bob Sabdo said of the perfect season. “These kids are coached by the best coaches in North Carolina, in my opinion. They all get equal coaching in the varsity and the JV.

“These kids came in, bought in right away, worked hard and didn’t complain. We set the goals high here at Havelock. We’re expected to win conference championships. We’re expected to go undefeated. That’s hard to do when you have 14- and 15-year-old kids playing on a Thursday night and they’ve got to get their school work done, too.

“It’s a testament to the kids, their effort, to their practice ability. Obviously the coaching is second to none, but these kids were able to take what they were given and apply it.”

The Rams were never threatened against West Craven. Quarterback Travis Sabdo threw 12 yards to Christian Crowe for a touchdown less than two minutes into the contest. He then threw a 46-yard bomb to Shondel Granison two minutes later, putting Havelock in front 14-0.
