Dedicating time before the start of the game to sing the national anthem, the Giants line up on the field’s sidelines.

On Sep. 2, varsity football dominated in their first home game of the season against tough competition: Rancho Cotate, a team they had lost to 42-14 in 2022. 

Large contributions were made from all players, most notably with senior receivers Van Hampton and Jackson Walker, who connected with junior quarterback Kody Vasquez on many instances, leading to key touchdowns. 

Approaching halftime, the game was tied 14-14, leaving fans and players anxiously anticipating what would happen next. Starting strong in the third quarter, Redwood scored a crucial touchdown, causing them to take the lead 21-14. 

However, after struggling to defend Rancho’s agile quarterback, the Giants saw themselves down 34-21 with only two minutes left. In those two minutes, the team did the impossible: they scored two crucial touchdowns, one with junior Sean Cunneen running the ball in and the other with a crisp pass to Walker, leaving only 11 seconds on the clock. Securing up the victory with a clean kick, senior Wilson Schwartz put the team ahead by one point and demonstrated the team’s calm performance under intense pressure.

Overall, the boys’ outstanding comeback may be the opening to an equally impressive season. Support the boys by watching their next game against Enterprise at home on Sep. 21 to see if they can pull out another victory.
