The local high school football team are the top seed in the Northern Conference double-A varsity standings

The Nechako Valley Vikings are undefeated and are in it to win. The football team from NVSS played their last game on Oct. 18 against Kelly Road Roadrunners and were victorious.

The season which began at the beginning of Sept. 2019, has seen the Vikings win three matches to be the top seed in the Northern Conference double A-varsity standings.

They are now on their way for the B.C. Secondary Schools Football Association semifinal playoff and will be playing the Prince George Polars on Oct. 25 at Masich Place Stadium.

“We have played really well this year,” said Sheldon Brown, head coach of the team. “Our offensive and defensive line is a powerhouse.”

Brown said the offensive line is lead by Teancim Arnold and Patrick Vahi.

On the backfield, at full back is Garrett Dick, running back Bridger Jensen and receivers Connor Hoffman and Kam Shoesmith. The quarterback for the team is Kayden Young.

“The team goal is to win championships and move on to provincials. And hopefully make top eight provincially,” Brown said.

The team started training in the middle of July, he said, adding the team has had a core group of players practice the entire way through.

“We are happy that all that work is paying out,” said Brown.

If the Vikings win the championships, they will be heading for provincials on Nov. 8 and Nov. 9.

The head coach for the team is Sheldon Brown, Assistant Coach and Defensive Co-ordinator is Cam Brown, Offensive Co-ordinator is Allan Bieganski and the other coach is Russel Jensen.
