Altavista, Northside, Giles Football - Teams of the Week

Posted:

Salem/Lynchburg - We've got ourselves a Team of the Week TRIFECTA.

Area teams went 3-for-3 this past weekend winning state championships.  Altavista got it done in a big way, shutting out Essex 21-0 as the Colonels win their second state title in five years.  The Northside Vikings also won their second state title in five years, taking down James Monroe 24-10.

And Giles scored with one second left to force overtime, and the Spartans edge Brunswick 20-19.  Giles caps a perfect 15-and-0 season and wins its fourth state title in school history.

Jeff Williams, GILES HEAD COACH, said "Only way I can describe this game and how we won it is you just kind of had to be here to see what happened.  It was just unbelievable how it finished out for us."

Mike Scharnus, ALTAVISTA HEAD COACH, said "Don't know what to say.  It's an unbelievable feeling and I'm glad these kids, this 2013 team got to experience it."

Burt Torrence, NORTHSIDE HEAD COACH, said "You know when you're committed and you pay a heavy price, you know, you can acquire accolades such as this."
