On Friday, September 15, the Flint Hill Varsity Football Team defeated Paul VI along with massive support from the Flint Hill Community. Crowds of Huskies and Panthers alike came together Friday night to support the teams. The Flint Hill Community demonstrated their spirit in the form of white-out attire, roaring chants, and signature husky pride for which the school is known.

“Everyone was so vibrant and excited to be there,” said SCA president, senior Leyla Ebrahimi. “I feel like many of the new students were able to participate in something for the first time. It was a great way to bring everyone together.”

Even the players themselves felt the night’s high energy.

“I thought the game was high powered and energetic,” said Justice Ellison, a sophomore on the team. “We had a lot of intensity on the offensive and defensive side of the ball. We made a lot of mistakes as far as our alignments, but overall we played well and fought hard to pull out the W.”

Being the first game for the team, the pressure was high; yet, the team was still able to triumph over PVI with an impressive 22-point lead. Neither the Varsity Football Team nor the Flint Hill Community disappointed. Coach Verbanic, the coach of Flint Hill’s football team, was especially proud of the players.

“As a coach I am motivated by the players,”said Verbanic, the coach of Flint Hill’s football team. “We are trying to be the best team that we can be but also learn how to be better young men by truly understanding that the team comes first way above the individual. When I see our players work hard, do things the right way for their teammates, act the way they should in school, and just be great people, it motivates me to try to do the best I can for them.”

“I thought it was a good learning experience for us,” agreed Miles Thompson, a junior on the team. “It was only our first game so we made a lot of mistakes, but the fact that we made so many mistakes and were still able to win pretty decisively makes me excited for the rest of the season.”
