Varsity Football Remain Confident
The Vikings Varsity football team dropped to 3-3 on the year after losing to Dallas A+ Academy by a score of 52-26. The Vikings were shorthanded for the game, but still managed to have quite a few bright spots. The team’s leading rusher, Draylyn D, carried the ball 13 times for 54 yards, and a TD. He also had a 60-yard kickoff return for a TD. Doyle capped off his day with a passing TD to Earl W. Senior captain, Evaristo C, had his first career TD on a 66-yard run in the 3rd quarter. Dami O, the team’s second leading rusher, led the defense with 11 tackles.
Despite the game, it was a positive trip for the football program. The team got to tour AT&T Stadium, which is home to the Dallas Cowboys. On Saturday, the Vikings attended the nationally televised Baylor vs. Texas Tech football game, which was also at AT&T Stadium. The Vikings hope to snap their three game losing streak this Friday, when they play at 4:30PM against KIPP Northeastern. Come out to Viking Field and show your support for your Varsity football team!
