Football Closes Out Season with Perfect Game

The varsity football team beat rival school Miramonte by a score of 44-0 on April 16th at Miramonte High School.

The Campo football team ranks 1st in the North Coast Section for Division 2 and 91st in the state, far ahead of Miramonte’s 52nd and 516th rankings, respectively.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s football season was significantly shorter than usual with only 6 games total. Prior to their matchup, Campo had gone 5-0 while Miramonte was 1-4 for the season.

Despite Campo’s higher rankings and undefeated status, varsity football coach Kevin Macy still considered Miramonte to be formidable opponents.

“The 1st 5 games were extremely dramatic and the coaches were worried about going into the final game of the year. We were confident that we could pull out some type of victory but we wanted it to be clean,” said Macy.

According to varsity football player junior Hudson Reicher, the team “had no expectations coming into the game” and rather focused on performing to the best of their ability.

Thanks to the significant lead they garnered in the 1st half, the Cougars played 1 of their best games of the season. Senior wide receiver Maxwell Weaver led the team, earning a .692 completion percentage, his best of the season.

According to Reicher, the Cougars played perfectly on both sides of the ball, as well as with a lot of passion and aggression.

“Weaver had a couple huge plays, and being able to run out the entire playbook on offense really helped us win,” added Reicher.

Macy similarly attributes some of the team’s success to Weaver’s stellar performance.

“Maxwell Weaver had the most explosive play of the night chasing down a deep rainbowed pass from [senior] Jacob [Griessel] for a 91-yard touchdown,” he said.
