Knights Take Down Brandon Eagles Amidst Late Flag Football Season

Varsity Flag doesn’t just want to win, they want to win tenfold.

The Knights easily sailed past the Brandon Eagles in the regional semifinal game, outscoring them 42-0.

Varsity dealt with practically no issues throughout the entirety of the game; with constant barrage through the yard lines, they instantly led ahead with 14-0 in the first quarter.

The Knights continued with notable success far into the fourth quarter. Minutes before the end of the game, quarterback Haidyn Spano (’25) intercepted the ball from the Brandon Eagles. The maneuver gave the knights another touchdown, pushing our score to a commanding 42-0.

The player of the game, according to MaxPreps, was wide receiver Tammy Jerson (’24). Jerson worked in solidarity with all on the team, carrying plays and making touchdowns through the entire game. With the help of Spano (’25) and the rest of the team, the Robinson Knights were able to take down the Brandon Eagles with ease.

“Now, towards the end of the season, (our team) has built this great bond,” Spano said. “So, we were able to push through and continue to win.”

With Varsity’s States Final growing near, one would expect the anxiety to rise, but the team manages to keep their cool amidst the Spring-heat and general tension. In fact, the team pride themselves on garnering as many points as possible.

“Even if the team we’re playing against isn’t the best, we have to make sure we’re at as close of a lead as we can be,” Spano said. “We have to continue to be disciplined within our team.”

About the Contributors
Jordan De La Cruz
Jordan De La Cruz, Staff Writer
Jordan De La Cruz is a junior at Robinson and a staff writer for Knight Writers. This is his first year on the staff. A true artist, De La Cruz partakes in many artistic hobbies including playing drums, guitar and even painting. "Anything creative I love to take part in," De La Cruz said. With an affinity for editing videos and having already written a few full-length stories, De La Cruz's passions for newspaper extend beyond the class. He felt joining newspaper would benefit his interests and wanted to expand his already formidable writing abilities. "As a writer I felt like this would be a super fun way to expand my influences with writing but also with the video editing," De La Cruz said. "I already have a good past in video editing that I think doing more of it would be great." While De La Cruz enjoys the opportunity to express his writing abilities, video creation is another thing that drew De La Cruz to newspaper. He looks forward to making content for the ongoing "Man on the street" videos under the Knight Mic series. De La Cruz looks forward to being able to build on the foundation left by previous classes and hopes to expand the coverage of Knight Mic videos beyond pep rallies and RHS sporting events. "I'm excited to be a host, be able to put my charisma on the screen," De La Cruz said. "Just being able to make videos with two friends of mine, I'm really excited." Never staying in one school for long, De La Cruz looks forward to finishing his final years at Robinson and leaving his mark on the school as a Knight Writer. "I used to move every year, but this is the only time I'm going to be able to finish the next three years at the same high school," De La Cruz said. "I'm super hopeful ... [that] I'll be able to have some sort of mark on the school." (Profile by Yesenia Rosario)
Keirra McGoldrick
Keirra McGoldrick, Opinion Editor
Keirra McGoldrick is senior at Robinson and the Opinion Editor of Knight Writers. This is her third year on staff and her second year as an editor. McGoldrick, as an editor, must provide a sense of direction and help for those coming into newspaper who may not quite know what they need to be doing. She must also make sure that all stories written by staff writers are up to par with that of the standard for the newspaper. “I edit all the opinion stories and make spreadsheets for opinion writers," McGoldrick said. McGoldrick may like writing in journalism, though nothing trumps her love of photography. She lists photography as one of her favorite hobbies and pass times outside of journalism. “I like photography," McGoldrick said. "I take pictures of anything I find interesting." Though McGoldrick has to keep up a balance of her academics and the needs of newspaper, she hopes to have enough time to join the photography club.  She wishes to do this in order to interact and convey her love of photography with other like-minded students at Robinson. Being the academic achiever that she is, McGoldrick keeps up with all of her classes. The two of these classes that she holds closest to her heart are journalism and history. However, she probably favors journalism a little more because it has her favorite teacher, Ms. Webster, who leads her to improve herself in all manner of things, especially photography. Outside of journalism, one of McGoldrick’s pastimes is to listen to music. As we know everyone needs a little bit of music to pull them through a slow school day, or just a slow day in general. “I like R&B and pop," McGoldrick said. “Taylor Swift, Kendrick Lamar, Ariana Grande, etc." High school isn't all McGoldrick has mapped out to do. Seeing as she is an academic achiever, McGoldrick already has plans for her future. She plans to keep her academic streak going through college. “I plan on going to university and majoring in criminal psychology and then after I graduate from normal college, I’m going to go get a PhD,” McGoldrick said.
