Similar to last Friday night, the TigerHawk football team took to the gridiron short handed as seven starters had to sit out due to testing positive for COVID-19 or being traced to a student who tested positive. Despite the disadvantage, NFV made the most of it and was able to make it a competitive game against Independence.

“With so many kids out, we had a lot of kids playing out of their normal position,” said assistant coach Travis Wymer who hosted the Coach’s Roundtable film review session on Saturday morning. “It came down to the big play. That is what killed us.”
