When the football team was faced with limited out-of-town scrimmages due to weather complications, they prepared in the comfort of their own territory, managing their situation with fun and hard work.

The team was scheduled to travel to Hutto, Tx., and only traveled out of town once to Tucson, Az. As of Oct. 5, the team stands 0-0 district,  3-1 overall and is going strong. They have played Mayfield 28-10 win, Salpointe Catholic 42-27 loss, Canutillo 37-14 win, Hanks 58-14 win.

“I think we are getting better as a team,” wide receiver and free starter Cauy Oropeza said. “We never quit and we play great games together.”

Football offers players valuable life lessons and great memories.

“It brings us all a lot of joy and laughter,”  defensive end, defensive tackle Sean Garcia said. “ With the hard work we are sure to pick up another win.”

Despite all of the responsibilities that come along with being on the football team such as maintaining grades and attending daily practices, for some, there is no room to stress over the game.

“I’m too young to be stressed out,” quarterback Raymond Montez said. “I enjoy it a lot. It’s fun.”
