10/25/14 FINAL GAME OF OUR SEASON LTI vs. Capstone Lynden........LTI 8-0 WON!
On the final game of the season LTI players battled some rain and a very muddy LMS football field but Comes out the winner over a very good LYNDEN Capstone team. ALL LTI Players played a big part in the victory today! The game was ball control and field position. Capstone held the ball for most of the first qtr but our LTI D put up many huge defensive stops. LTI players kept capstone from scoring on that long first drive and each time they held the ball. This was the first time Capstone was shut out all Season. One of the Biggest plays on D was a well executed D coverage and Safety by Gavin to give us the 8-0 lead with minimal time left on the clock. BIG LTI PLAY MAKERS on D today were Matt, Taivin, Ryan, Kaleo, Zach Gavin, Roman, Isaac, Kaleo, Zach, Lincoln, Riley, Eli, Lane, Tyler, Luke S, Blake, Briggs, Clayton, Kai, Coleson, Luke W, & Isaiah. On Offense LTI played a classic old school game of straight ahead on the ground football. We had huge Blocks and Runs by every player on our TEAM some great second efforts by our ball carriers Taivin, Kaleo, Gavin, Ryan, Matt, Colson, were HUGE.....Did we mention our Blockers. LTI players learned over the season that a block on the outside/inside is just as important as a run a pass a catch. In the old days they called a game like this smash mouth football, today this may not politically correct and is NOT how we teach the game to be played well Kinda. We do teach players to be the hammer and not the nail. As the season moved forward all players were able to figure out what this really means! GREAT GREAT WORK TO EACH OF OUR PLAYERS! and TO THE MANY PERSONS WHO HELPED OUR PROGRAM EACH WEEK!
FINAL SEASON RECORD 6-2 with our only losses to the first and second place Teams.....
We Wish Each Player The Very Best As this Season Ends And The Next Begins What Ever They Choose To Play
Coaches Nyles, Mark, Lloyd, Aaron & Rick

|progress. LTI held a very good team to their lowest point total of the season as well as giving one of ferndale the most physical game that they have played to date per their coach.
| Capstone was held to 7 points the second half to go with LTI's 6 . A huge shout out to our players for their hard work and commitment. Todays LTI's big hitters were Taivin, Ryan, Luke W
