BVNW’s Offensive Line Coach, Tenny Dewey said the varsity football team had witnessed BVSW playing prior to the game. He said the team knew BVSW fought hard on defense and had a very unique offense.

“We certainly don’t like the final outcome,” Dewy said. “We had a lot of respect of BVSW coming into the game. We saw them physically pounding people on film and doing things they did to us. We had a pretty good idea that we needed to score some points to win. We got four touchdowns, but tonight that wasn’t enough.”

Dewey said that the first part of the season is over and that district play would begin, which will determine which teams go on to the playoffs.

“We’ll get a chance to play deep into November, which makes these next few weeks very important,” Dewey said. “It’ll be a bitter feeling tonight, but tomorrow we’ll come to work knowing there’s a chance for us to make state playoffs. To do that, we need to start focusing, have a great week of practice and get these next few games.”

BVNW’s Defensive Tackle, senior, Brian Ramsey said the team could have played a lot better. According to Ramsey, the team will need to get back to basics and will need a full week of practices before the next game.
