Ending the season without a title is never easy but for the 2020-2021 Ste. Gen Dragons, you can’t say they didn’t play their hearts out. After starting the season 0-3, the Dragons came back to win 3 of their next 4 and also won a playoff game. Landon Rose played a big part in Ste. Gen’s success this season on the defensive side of the ball.
Rose contributed 27 tackles for the dragons with 3 of them resulting in a loss of yards. Football is something that has been a part of his life for a long time and this turned out to be the last season he will lace up his cleats.
