Football Looks to Extend Season

After overcoming the criticism and predictions that Campo would place last in league, and might not even win a game, the football team has finished their regular season on top with an undefeated 10-0 record.

The team is now pursuing new goals, that of winning their first playoff game in hopes of playing after Thanksgiving break in the NCS Championship.

Kevin Macy, football coach of 16 years, said “this is not one of our biggest teams. Surprisingly, they’ve had great chemistry and they work well together.”

Macy thinks highly of his players. “Griffin Piatt has been the biggest playmaker this year. Vince Grazziano is the most physical player and Karl Thorton was strong in the playoffs. The offensive line has held together well,” Macy explained.

Griffin Piatt said, “everyone gives 100% to stimulate real game experiences. We put a lot of hard work in during the season, but we also faced some adversity. Winning 10 games made the effort pay off.”

Senior Vince Grazziano added, “we’ve showed everyone wrong. We have something going for us this year.”

With 17 seniors on the team this year, they are hoping to extend their season as far as they can. Piatt said, “it’s definitely going to be weird for the team to end, we’ve been playing together for so long and gotten closer together, but the fact we know we’ve left behind a good season will help us.”

Grazziano said, “it’s good, but, it’s bittersweet. You know it’s good that you’ll have these memories for the rest of your life but you don’t want it to end.”

As playoffs approach, Macy said, “I wouldn’t call Moraga a football town, but this might keep some boys playing football in the future.

The varsity team is ranked third in Division 3 and will face Hercules, seed 13, this Friday at 7:00 pm.
