The varsity football team beat Park View High School 35-28 at home on Friday, Oct. 25 in its senior night game. 

“The only thing that kept Parkview in the game was our own little mistakes. When we eliminated those, we couldn’t have lost,” running back and defensive lineman Niko Economos (5) said. 

Following the game against Paul Public Charter with a score of 48-12, this win concluded the football season with a record of 6-2.

“This season was quite a ride, and I definitely think we finished a better team than we started,”  wide receiver and defensive back Neel Mandapati (21), a senior, said. “It took a special group of players this year to stay hungry for wins throughout the season, and I’m incredibly proud and fortunate to have played on this team.”
