Our beloved Varsity Football Lopes’ had a historical season this school year, fueling vivid excitement across Avonworth. Mr. Johncour, the football team’s coach, was enthralled, exclaiming, ““It was in incredible season!”
Mr. Johncour was stricken with pride for how his players performed this year, stating, “To go undefeated in the regular season, win a WPIAL Championship, and then win the PIAA Semifinals game to go to Hershey for the State Championship game, is just an amazing experience, and an amazing ride.” Coach Johncour was thrilled to lead a team so successful, and to lead his players through a deep playoff run, to a WPIAL Championship victory and PIAA Semifinal victory, and all the way to the State Championship.
Mr. Johncour continued, stating, “And to play in Hershey was an amazing experience.” It truly must have been. To be on the state stage is no small endeavor.
Mr. Johncour also commented on the football team’s opponent. “Unfortunately, we faced an extremely talented team, called to be a ‘Team of the Century.’ And, we didn’t win that game. But, just an overall great, great, incredible year!” Humble words from Coach Johncour, exuding what true sportsmanship is all about.
Despite the loss, there is no reason to be down about the season as a whole. The record breaking year for our football team is an incredible feat! Coach Johncour, every football player, students, parents, and fans alike, should be proud of the history made this season!
