The evening of Saturday, November 24, 2018 at McKenzie Stadium in Vancouver did not end as the Puyallup High School Vikings had hoped.

The Vikings had a stellar season and were fighting their way to another championship. The  Vikings carried the lead into the second half when suddenly the top-ranking Union Titans scored three touchdowns, defeating the Viking’s 35-28 in the final minutes of the game.

The Viking team began training with coaches and volunteers for this year’s season back in January 2018. Their commitment paid off. The obvious physical agility, stamina, and strength the Vikings possess makes them true athletes, proven by their successful season. Through the many hours and days of training, practices, and games, the athletes created deep bonds of family and brotherhood that will last a lifetime.

To family, friends, school, and community these athletes are true champions.

“The Viking football program would like to thank the staff and students at PHS, parents and friends, and the community for their outstanding support throughout this season. When you make the commitment that our players and coaches made, and people respond as positively as they did, it makes for a pretty special situation.”
said Head Coach Gary Jeffers.
