Coral Glades football is in great hands with Rocco Casullo as their new head coach.
Despite getting off to a 0-4 start, Casullo says their record does not indicate how they are playing and what they hope to accomplish after only meeting for the first time as a team just two months ago.
“We have been in our first two games,” Casullo said. “Our defense is really good while Corey Grant continues to run the offense as a leader. We have a very talented JV team, and we are building it from the bottom up.”
The defense allowed only 14 points in regulation in their first game before falling by a touchdown in overtime. They followed that up with a strong effort against Deerfield Beach High School. Jefferson Sainsaus, Jordan Ulysse, and Keyshawn Sinfort combined for 25 tackles, five sacks, six tackles for a loss, and two forced fumbles against the Bucks.
Coral Glades was then beaten by Miramar High School 61-0 and lost 35-0 against Everglades before their bye week.
“Our practices have been very productive, and the execution is getting better each week,” Casullo added.
They are set to play another formidable opponent on Thursday in Cypress Bay High School at 7 p.m. The Lightning are 4-1, with their only loss against Blanche Ely High School. Cypress Bay won their only meeting last year, 35-8.
