The Flying Fluco varsity football team took the field by storm in its home opener against Spotsylvania Friday night (Sept. 2) when the Flucos went all the way for a touchdown on their first snap.
The Flucos went on to top the Spotsylvania Knights 26-13 in the team’s first successful game after a winless season last year.
After the opening kick-off, the Flucos had the ball on their own 23-yard line. Senior quarterback Mark Grooms ran right on a keeper. He picked up a couple of nice blocks, broke a couple of arm tackles and then simply ran away from the Knights’ defenders for the score. Junior Ethan Graves kicked the extra point and the Flucos led 7-0 after 22 seconds of play.
