Football Hopes to Get a Win Against Crespi for Homecoming

By Sarah O’Brien, Staff Writer

This year the Notre Dame’s varsity football team is hoping to take first place in Mission League. With a lot of new players contributing to the team, the Knights hope to improve their rank from last year, getting a better win-loss record.

Senior football player, Khalid Taylor says “We’re all really good friends and have a special bond. We want to work for each other.” Taylor has played football for four years at Notre Dame as both a safety and a wide receiver. His goal this year is to win a ring.

Sophomore running back, Mckel Broussard hopes that this season gives the team a change to win league and get his name out there to more colleges. “It’s more than just football, it’s a brotherhood,” he says about the team.

One of ND’s newest additions to the football team is sophomore transfer, Jeremy Barrett, who says his favorite part about the team is “the coaching staff is really great, they love helping us and making us better.”

After a tough loss against Chaminade last week, the team agrees that beating Crespi is at the top of their priorities as it is both Senior and Homecoming night. However, their biggest goal is to win league. Although it may prove a challenge, the boys are working very hard on and off the field so they can accomplish their goals.

Make sure to come and support the Knights as they take on Crespi in their last home game this Friday at 7pm. It’s a pink out so come out and support Breast Cancer awareness in your best pink attire.
