When the Hampshire Jr. Whip-Purs joined the AYF for more competitive rivalries, some doubted us, claiming we were all hype. During Week 3, many in the region started to Believe the Hype!
Our new league, American Youth Football took notice of the Jr. Whip-Purs program in Week 3, as our teams put Hampshire squarely on the map playing against and going toe to toe against the nationally ranked Prospect University.
While the final scores for the younger teams reflect blow outs, they're nowhere near reflective of what actually transpired on the field. During the 6U game, our organization's youngest players played hard against the far bigger boys from the land of cheese. They made some great defensive plays, consistently putting pressure on the opposing quarterback, and even getting in a few sacks. If it weren't for a few missed tackles, the score would have been far closer.
10U Purple showed that being runner-up for the 2021 State Championship was not nearly good enough, as they took on the 2021 AYF National Champions. With the score of 0 - 0 at the beginning of the 3rd quarter, Prospect U finally broke through with a sweep to go up 7-0. But that only made the boys in purple angry. The famed Purple Curtain locked them down for the balance of the game while the Offense scored two unanswered touchdowns to go up 14-7. An interception in the 4th quarter slammed the door.
The big boys on 13U Purple got some payback for the littles, blowing out the other side 36-0 to extend their regular season record to 3-0 on a rain soaked Sunday afternoon. They dominated both sides of the ball from start to stop, giving their opponents a very long ride back to Milwaukee. Hampshire High School is going to be very happy to have these boys on their roster next season.
Each week we see improvements at every level. Its time for everyone to Believe the Hype. We are Hampshire!
