It has been a crazy year in general, let alone for the Ste. Gen Dragons. After a slow start, they bounced back and finished the season strong, and accomplished a win in the playoffs before losing to undefeated Kennett. Throughout the season, the Dragons’ defense showed their heart. One variable that can be associated with that was the play of senior Chaytin Lea.
Lea played 6 games for the Dragons and had 7 tackles on defense. He contributed a huge 45-yard pick-six this year as well. It is unknown whether or not he will continue his football career in college, but we will be seeing him on a playing field again.
