"Put his team on his shoulders performance of the season"

Savannah Country Day’s Barry Kleinpeter willed his team to a win in a 31-24 overtime victory over visiting Savannah Christian on Nov. 5. The game was played in ice-cold, windy conditions and Kleinpeter had just two completions for 8 yards in the first half. Kleinpeter, who has signed to play at New Hampshire, finished the night completing 7 of 18 passes for 154 yards, including 137 yards and three touchdown passes in the fourth quarter and overtime. He also ran for 40 yards, made several key punt returns and made an interception to ice the game in overtime.

Kleinpeter's Family Tradition in Athletics

Sports has been a focal point of Barry Kleinpeter's life from the start — and the Savannah Country Day quarterback has carried on his family's tradition with pride since he first donned shoulder pads as a second-grader playing for the Islands Pirates. The family tradition of athletes stems back to his grandfather who was an outstanding pitcher at Savannah High. His father was an Ashley Dearing Award winner. We look forward to watching Barry' as he continues his career playing football at the University of New Hampshire. 

 

Football Headed to GHSA Sweet 16

Savannah Country Day was looking for a spark. Stratford Academy had marched 88 yards in nine plays for a touchdown on its first drive and connected on a 53-yard touchdown pass on its second to put the host Hornets on the ropes Saturday night. The Hornets had a couple of costly drops on their first two possessions and seemed lifeless, trailing 13-0 late in the first half. That's when Barry Kleinpeter, the heart of the Hornets team, made a play that changed the momentum of the game. After a rugged 16-yard run to covert a third down, the senior quarterback rolled to his left toward the SCD sideline — keeping his eyes peeled downfield for any kind of opening. Just when it looked like he would run out of bounds, Kleinpeter let fly with a difficult throw across his body, delivering a laser over a pair of defenders to the back of the end zone where Keith James made an impressive 22-yard catch for a touchdown. The play woke up the SCD sideline and fired up the Hornets, who played with a renewed spark in the second half en route to a 21-19 win over Stratford in the first round of the GHSA Class A Private playoffs. The Hornets will travel to Holy Innocents to play on Friday at 7:30 PM in the GHSA Sweet 16.
