History Being Made

The Varsity football team is only three games into their young season, but the Vikings are giving us plenty of reasons to believe that this team is special. For the first time in school history, the Vikings have started 3-0. Any time you make school history, you know something special is happening. Lets look a little deeper. Through the first three games, the Vikings have outscored their opponents by a combined 113- 20! The Vikings aren’t exactly squeaking by the opposition. They are DOMINATING them in all phases of the game. They have combined for 15 rushing touchdowns through 3 games. They have an identity, led by Senior running back, Draylyn D, who has 12 rushing touchdowns in the same span. Their defense has been stingy, allowing less than 7 points per game through the first 3 games. They are getting pressure on the quarterback and creating turnovers. They have tremendous Senior leadership with a number of 4 year Varsity players on both sides of the ball. Another reason to be optimistic is the fact that the Vikings have played 2 of the first 3 games on the road so far this season. With 6 of their remaining 8 games coming at home, the Vikings are set up to break more school records. It’s easy to get excited, but this team isn’t taking anything for granted. They are staying focused and disciplined. These two things are the foundation of Coach Bagot’s philosophy. The Vikings are home for their next game on Friday, September 18th. Kick off is set for 5:00pm. Come and show your support for your Varsity football team. Go Vikings!
