The team fought hard this season. Even though their record didn't show it, they all gave a full effort and there's nothing else to say. There were life lessons in football that others sports or people couldn’t teach you. It taught you how to be not just a player, but a person too. After a rough start to the season Coach Raciti always told them, ”We will never be good unless everyone buys into the program”. The first game was a great example of their effort. The Falcons lost, but they did not give up till the end. The score was 40-7 , Alemeda, at halftime. The final score at the end of the game was 40-48. They had almost pulled off the biggest comeback in College Park history. That showed how much effort and dedication they put into the program right off the start. At that point the seniors completely changed their whole attitude. Getting on the right track was important helping motivating the team inot taking a “W” week two against Mt. Eden. The team's success was not measurable only with wins and losses..
The team had a tough schedule with new DAL additions Benicia and Las Lomas as well as local rivals Berean Christian and Alhambra. Having coached for 25 years,Coach Mike Huff completed his first season as a Varsity Head Football Coach for the Falcons. The team earned Coach Huff his first win week two against Mt. Eden. The team worked all summer, even in the scorching heat they pushed through and were ready for the season. They accomplished a lot more than just trying to win games.
They did not make league playoffs this year by a one game loss. That last game against Berean Christian, everyone gave it their all. Not one quit till the last buzzer went off. The seniors this year were a great example of how anyone can become a leader and showed the underclassmen how you can go from third string to starting team, all by your effort. Senior Nate Davila said, “The season wasn't as disatourious as the record may have seemed. I feel as though the coaches helped the players grow both as players and people. Against Mt. Eden which was our first win administrators and parents could hear the roar of the Falcon fight song.”
