The SVHS varsity football team tackled the competition, bringing home a win against rival Justin Siena, in their riveting senior night game. Although the Dragons had their homecoming game after the senior night game, the latter was focused primarily on giving thanks and appreciation to the seniors who have taken the time out of their lives to play the sport they love.
  Many of the players on the team felt a sense of nostalgia and sadness after they realized they had just played their last home game. Senior starting quarterback, Trent Garrett, explained, “It didn’t hit me until the last minutes of the game, I sat on the bench and thought ‘Damn, it’s really over.’”

  Senior starting running back, Ryan Sherwood stated his feelings after the win against Justin, “It was really fun beating them, especially since they are our rivals.” Sherwood expressed sadness but is glad the season is coming to a close, because the sport is physically demanding.

  The football players also conveyed appreciation towards their head coach, Bob Midgley, who has been in the Sonoma Valley football program for 29 years. Senior Evan Raffaini commented on Midgley’s influence, “I’m going to miss his yelling and inspirational after game talks that would hype us up for the games to come.” Raffaini is excited and ready for the next chapter in his life, and thanks the football program for playing its part in it.

  While the varsity football team’s season might have been a disappointment based on record, they consider themselves winners in their hearts, with the bonds and friendships they made throughout their time playing on the gridiron.
