For the first time since fall of 2015, the Vikings scored over 50 points in a game, making it a memorable night for spectators and players alike.
According to Head Coach Nelson Gifford, the Vikings brought a new energy to celebrate their seniors and make their single home game as special as possible.
“I was very, very happy to see so many guys get an opportunity to play, see them support each other, even when things were a little rough in the beginning,” Gifford said. “They continued to stay positive, continued to stay supportive, and it was beautiful.”
“We only have two more games left. It is crazy to think how short this season is, and I just want this to be as special as it can be for all these guys.” — Nelson Gifford, head coach
Senior guard and defensive end Jackson Bundy reflected upon his final year playing high school football and the team’s win against Milpitas.
“I just try to take it all in,” Bundy said. “It was our one home game this year. Football has meant a lot to me this year. … This is probably gonna be a night that I remember for the rest of my life.”
