The Falcon football team, led by 11 experienced seniors, is eyeing a state run this season.
Rockwood Summit football’s Alex Armstrong describes last year's season-ending loss to Webster Groves as a horror movie. “It’s like a movie where the one team has the last-second drive to win the game and they don’t win. It’s the most painful feeling, you don’t sleep, you don’t want to go to school. The only thing to get rid of that feeling is to go out and work,” he said. The Falcons ended the 2011 season on a last-second two-point conversion to tie the game. They were stopped with less than a yard to go. “It makes every bit of effort, every last push, every step you take that much more. You don’t want to be at the chance to go to the state playoffs and be stopped by a yard,” Armstrong said. (See more photos from a recent Falcons practice …
