The lord botetourt cavaliers are considered one of our area powerhouse football teams. Senior defensive lineman noah overstreet and junior offensive lineman jesse hanson look to continue the tradition of success at lb. 01-0520-24 36-4255-1:041:17-1:26 in 2015 the lord botetourt fooball team was searching for its first state title. Sophomore noah overstreet was already showing out, logging 3 solo tackles, and one assist. Freshman jesse hanson was on the sidelines, watching his future unfold with every snap. Nat pop the loss that december day didn't define these players, two years later they are among the biggest, strongest, quickest, and toughest boys in the area, with scholarship offers pouring in on both sides of the ball. Sot football is a way of live for these guys since they were young, but in different ways. For jesse, it was his brother's influence, and botetourt bred, that got him involved. J- ive always lived in botetourt, my brother played before me so he always played football and at six years old i started playing and have always loved it since. Noah, whose dad played at virginia tech, has coached him nce he was young. But it was wrestling that caught his attention most. N- my first year playing football i didnt like it at all. I played football and wrestled, i didnt like them at first but i grew into them. I wrestled until my freshman year of high school and didnt want to lose weight and we already had a good heavyweight so i decided to stick with football and lift weights year round. From being in the state finals to a first round playoff loss, jesse and noah experienced the cavalier rollercoaster ride. Head coach jamie harless says its something his guys think about a lot. H- ill be honest, a lot of what is inside of them is stowed away, we had some embarrassing moments, compared to what were used to. And you know when you have that it doesnt feel good. And when you dont feel good about yourself you have two choices, you feel sorry about yourself or analyze what went wrong. And you fix it. A lot of it has been the kids fixing what they felt liek what was wrong and what i felt. N- we certainly came in with high expectations, but we had to keep working hard ane beleiving we could make it to states and i feel like thats what helped us get there. And this year we have a lot of guys who believe we can do it again and we got this. J- when i got here as a freshman, we ahd our first season where we went past our second game in the playoffs and first time in the championship. For me in my team this year and the next, we win one and bring home the ring. The future looks bright for both jesse and noah, the pair has several offeres to play college football. However, the focus is on the high school football sesason ahd. N- im most excited about being able to lead the team more, come out with flags, and come do handshakes at the start of the game. J- right now with the season starting im just trying to focus on being the best high school football players i can be, taking the team to playoffs and then a championship. Just focusing on winning every game ahead of us. H-with those two kids, and the opportunities they have been given and worked for, they have open a door for a lot of other kids. Theres going to be a lot of kids coming through here that are very similar to jesse and noah and i think becuase of them popping the cork on the bottle, coaches are going to come in here and say you know lb has some kids, kids we can recruit. Among all the pressure, both guys have eachother to lean on for one more year. J- since freshman eyar, we always headbutted against the line. Hes dt and im ot, always going against eachother making eachother better, its definitely nice to have someone else with d1 offers going against you in practice everyday. Later this year, the sun will set on lord botetourt's 2017 season. But the history jesse and noah have made together, will forever be part of cavalier stadium. Overstreet and hanson feel confident about the season ahead for the cavaliers. Lord botetourt opens up the season at home friday against harrisonburg. Brooke leonard, wfxr sports.
