Delayed departure thanks to Hermine. Overnight on Eye Street. 22 hour bus trip. Arrival at 5:30am on gameday. Heat. The 2015 7A Florida Runner-up awaiting. One word through it all, EMBRACE. The Gonzaga Football Eagles earned the first win of the year on September 3 at Viera HS with a tremendous display of focus, determination, and togetherness.
“It was pretty simple for the Viera Hawks on Saturday night:
Too many penalties.
Too many turnovers.
And way too much of Gonzaga (Washington D.C.) running back Tyree Randolph.
The Eagles’ senior running back ran 33 times for 281 yards and four touchdowns – including two in the fourth quarter – as Gonzaga rallied for a 31-19 victory over Viera at Hawk Stadium.” —> read the complete article from Florida Today
On Sunday, the team and the staff attended mass and spent some time on the beach before heading home that evening.
The Eagles next game is Saturday, September 10 vs The Avalon School on Buchanan Field.
