JF's Cupit is week 12 honoree

Cavaliers running back rushes for 208 in win over Salem

SALEM, Va. – The stakes rise in week 12 of the high school football season as the playoffs begin. The players who make a difference in the go-or-go-home situations are honored.

Friday night in Salem, Jefferson Forest needed a go-to guy, and they got him in running back Keenan Cupit.

The Cavs junior back rambled for 208 yards and 2 scores and was a mainstay on defense as Jefferson Forest ended Salem's 3-year stranglehold on the Division 4 ranks in the state.

It was JF's first ever victory over perennial power Salem, and advances them into the 4D region semifinals.
