The perfect season


Tyler Gottfriedt rushed for 374 yards and eight TDs. He also caught 22 passes for 659 yards and 10 TDs. He had 1033 total yards from scrimmage and 18 TDs. He had two interceptions, one for a score and had a fumble recovery for a score.

Three Ram defenders had over 100 tackles. Clayton Peterson led the way with 129 tackles, 31 for loss. Ryan Skowronski had 111, 22 for loss. Gottfriedt had 108 tackles with a team-leading 33 tackles for loss. Mason Cameron led the Rams with three interceptions, one for a pick six.

“We have a lot of supportive parents that make things easy in terms of holding the kids accountable in life, in school, and on the field,” Coach Cloe said. “There is a reiteration at home of what we teach as coaches, and that makes our job easier.

“To be able to primarily focus on the X’s and O’s of football is a blessing and it pays off for our team success as a whole,” Cloe said. “We don’t get caught up in individual accolades and that is a great attribute for a team. Nobody cares who scores on this team, as long as we accomplish our goals, and I think we have done that for the most part this year, and the past 3 years collectively.

“We want to thank all that support JFL in terms of helping us raise money to do what we do,” Coach Cloe said. “We also want to thank the fans for coming out to support us. To have what we call a community in the truest sense is a blessing as well, and we have that here in Shelbyville. I think our kids are fortunate for that.”
