NORTH VALLEY MILITARY INSTITUTE - The NVMI high school football team won against longtime rival Animo Jackie Robinson High School on Friday, September 17th, 2021. NVMI scored 32-0 in the massive home game victory.
NVMI and Animo have a deep rivalry that is longer than most player's memories in their football careers. The Hawks lost to Animo in the city football championship two years ago.
"It was heartbreaking," said Dr. Mark Ryan, the superintendent of NVMI. "It was the highest scoring football game in California Interscholastic Federation history. We lost in the last seconds of the game."
Players were surprised that they managed to keep the team from scoring at all and were proud to be part of Hawks football. The seniors were really excited in the days leading up to the game because they wanted to get "revenge" for the championship loss two years ago.
I am ecstatic of how the team played, Coach Aguliar said.
The Hawks football team went on to win against University Pathways Public Service Academy on September 23rd, in a score of 34-28.
