Five TDs for Chief Kanim Hawks’ football star Jacob Belcito

The Chief Kanim Middle School seventh grade football team met its counterpart at Twin Falls Middle School on Friday, Sept. 23.

Chief Kanim earned their first win of the season, 34-6. The Hawks offensive line helped pave the way for an effective ground game. Jacob Belcito got the fireworks started early with a 70-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, then ran the ensuing punt back for a 55-yard return and another TD. Belcito added three more touchdown runs in the game.

The Hawks’ defense finished the job, led by Jack Strobbe, Baily Mullen and AJ Archambeau. Stars in the game included Belcito with five touchdowns for 140 yards  and eight tackles; Mullen with six tackles and two sacks; Andrew Lewis with 60 yards and six tackles; and Jake Brady, who went three for six attempts with 30 passing yards.

Coaches Chris Blake and Paul Dobberfuhl were proud of the boys' efforts.
