Angel Solis, one of the football team’s captains, having a hard time going through these losses points to the fact that “having chemistry was the biggest issue. The team was separated into two parts which made the team not function to its best abilities.” Even throughout all these problems he nominated Kevin Corona as MVP and Carlos Lopez as the most improved player in the team.

The Coach of the football team, Christopher Lyke, was also interviewed and he also had ups and downs from the team.  One season low was that players were not getting along with each other. Even with this altercation the team had very good moments one of them being that “the team was putting up a fight every game and building on from last year and not quitting.”

Their endurance led to them being more confident, proving that even though they had a bad season they can always turn things around and make things better next year.
