Roanoke - This week's ABC 13 High School Team of the Week is the Northside football team. The Vikings play for a state championship Saturday in Lynchburg. 13-and-1 Northside won at Loudoun Valley 29-14 in the semifinals. And the Vikings will try and nail down their second state title in school history and first since 2009 this Saturday. Northside battles the team that edged Heritage, James Monroe, at noon Saturday at LU.
Sam Krizner, NORTHSIDE SENIOR TAILBACK, said "Our chemistry is really good, everybody on our team gets along real good. We can all joke with each other and everybody is really disciplined and everybody knows that for one person to do well the other person has to do their job. So it all occurs in a big machine, I guess."
