Ahead of the Chelan-Omak contest on October 24th, GoLakeChelan Dave Rogge talked with these 3
Members of the Chelan Goats.
Eli Jenkins, the Senior Quarterback and Defensive Back for the Goats has had a great season so far. And clearly worked his magic again on the Omak Pioneers last Friday Night by contributing 105 yards passing and another 61 yards rushing. In the previous weeks loss against Cascade, he rushed for over 100 yards and passed for over 150. He lead his offense over 300 yards in the Goats 47-0 defeat of the Pioneers. You can tell from Eli's interview that he is a team player and his outstanding performances have come through the efforts of the other members of his team.
Anthony Padilla, is one of the Goats stronger Offense and Defensive Player. Tony, a young man who as a freshman wasn't sure he wanted to play football at first, but made the decision to play because a lot of his friends were playing. For the Goats, that was the beginning of something special. Tony was originally out of shape and struggled in practice each and everyday. Now 4 years later,Tony has become very special. His strength is unchallenged and with the development of his body and mental aspect of the game, Tony has become very quick. Although we do not know just how many tackles Tony has made, we know you hear his name called with most every tackle at the line and down field. Tony has grown in so many ways and hopes to keep football in his life after high school if the opportunity presents itself.
