St. Viator alumni who graduated this past spring attended their first Bishop Gorman High School home football game against Mater Dei High School in California on Friday, August 24th. 
 

     Mater Dei was ranked as the #2 team in the nation and the Gaels were ranked #12. Unfortunately, the Gaels were dominated throughout the game and 42-0 was the final score in a tough loss for the Gaels. It was a highly anticipated high school football game and was televised live on TV.

       Cooper Boynton, a freshman at Bishop Gorman High school who graduated from St. Viator, has been at Bishop Gorman football games the past few seasons and was excited to see what the Gaels will bring to the field this year. Cooper described the difference between going to a Gorman game as a St. Viator student and now as a Gorman student, “As a Bishop Gorman student you know more people there which makes its more fun to watch”. Cooper also believes that the team will improve this season, “I actually think they did a good job considering they played the number 2 team in the nation.”

       Jamal Iwais, a freshman football player at Bishop Gorman High School and a graduate from St. Viator , described what it felt like getting to play for Bishop Gorman High School, “It feels good to play football for Bishop Gorman because of how good of a team it is, and it feels good slowly getting better at the sport. Also, it’s always nice to be part of something bigger than yourself.”  Interestingly, Jamal did not always want to play football, “I did not always want to be a football player when I was younger. I thought about it, but my parents always thought that football was a dangerous sport for me to play, so they wanted me to stay away from it. I played basketball until 7th grade and then did not play any sports in 8th grade. But this year in high school my parents finally let me play.”

    Parents also enjoyed going to the game and described their experiences going to games at their high schools compared to going to the Gorman games.  Shaynee Boynton said, “I loved going to my High School games, but the Bishop Gorman game was so much more exciting and many more people!”

     Another St. Viator and Gorman parent, Randy Boynton, was also excited to see the game, “I loved that there were so many people there and that it was going to be on ESPN.”

 Although the team tried their best and lost, many people came to support BGHS at the game and had a lot of fun.
