The football game takes the field for their game against Little Miami.

The Knights football team has reached the third round of the playoffs and is looking for a big win against rival Winton Woods. They previously lost to the Warriors during the 2021 playoffs last year. This time, they hope to take down Winton Woods and advance.

“We are feeling really good about Friday,” said starting quarterback Will Kocher. “ We have prepared so much and are ready for whatever they throw at us.”

The players have been waiting for this moment since they lost against the Warriors during the Homecoming game. This match has been marked on their calendars.

“I’m excited to get some redemption,” said Kocher.

Not only are the players excited though, but also the Red Sea student section is. The “red sea” is ready to show out for the Knights this Friday.

“We know the atmosphere is going to be wild and we’re looking to thrive off that energy,” said Jay Holubetz, a starting running back for the Knights. “The hype around this game is on another level so us players are really locking in this week and trying to drown out the noise.”

Now that the moment has arrived, the players are ready to go out on the field and give it their all. This is what they’ve hoped for ever since they started playing football. This game can result in the team going home or getting closer to the state championship.

“We’re absolutely pumped. We have been dreaming of playing in a game like this since we were little kids playing on the same youth team,” said Holubetz.
