Last Saturday, the Arapahoe Warriors’ varsity football squad travelled to EchoPark Stadium to take on the Rock Canyon Jaguars. They struggled against the home team in a bitter 38-17 contest. This marks the beginning of a transitional season for the Warriors, with former QB Connor Desch being replaced by Junior QB Kevin Lukasiewicz.

Although the Warriors were soundly beaten, they showed potential to improve team chemistry and had a strong passing offense. Senior TE Jake Groth led in receiving, with 135 yards and Arapahoe’s only passing touchdown.

Looking ahead to Friday’s matchup against Heritage, Arapahoe will need to focus on dramatically improving both their defensive line and secondary, which allowed 217 rushing and 249 receiving yards respectively last Saturday. The historic rivalry game will kick off at 7pm on Sep. 8, with the Eagles hosting the Warriors at Littleton Public Schools Stadium.
