East Noble Middle School FOOTBALL
ENMS Football 2021
Both the ENMS Knights teams have wrapped up another great season. The 7th grade team ended the season with a 6-2 record, which they will look to build on next year. The 8th grade team beat DeKalb in the NE8MS Conference Championship game by a score of 34-12, winning the conference title with a 7-2 record! In two years of middle school football the 8th graders were 14-3. Thank you for the hard work and memories, and good luck at the high school!
