Whoever said all good things must end wasn’t wrong. To conclude a stellar, undefeated regular season, the Braves faced off against Evanston at home, the last regular season home game the senior players will ever compete in. Of course, with a playoff victory already behind them and another ahead, the seniors would play again at home, but against Evanston they enjoyed the spotlight of senior night.

“It’s just another game and another Friday night,” said Hazen Erickson about his last regular season game of football. Erickson went on to talk about his favorite memory in football that happened his junior at the hotel after winning state where he enjoyed his time with the team after a fun long season. He hopes to do it again soon. “I hope I can keep continuing playing football after high school in college, but even the thought that my high school football season is coming to an end is pretty sad but the time spent with my team and coaches was amazing!” said Erickson.

“I don’t really want too think much about it being my last ever regular season game. I just want to stay focused on our main goal as a team this season to win state and be able to have that memory forever!” said senior Bryson Jenkins.

Many seniors let their beating of the Evanston Red Devils 63 to 0 on the Braves senior speak for itself and the season they’ve put in.

On that night dedicated to honoring the seniors, RJ Cazier tied the school record for career touchdowns at SV. “I couldn’t have done it without everyone on the team, the line for blocking, and it’s just a cool achievement that happened from what’s happened the past few years,” said Cazier.

The seniors don’t want to end their season with  a loss and will need to win two more games before turning out the lights on their time at Braves Field.
