After a great start to the season and beating the Washington Huskies 37-31, which has not been done in many years, the Irvington Vikings pulled off a third straight come-from-behind victory. This gave the Irvington coaching staff a new sense of hope for plans to build a more competitive program in the future.
The Vikings hit a bump in the road on October 6th when, after racking up a 14-point lead against the American Eagles, the lead quickly faded in the fourth quarter resulting in a loss (28-58).
Irvington would like to recognize its outstanding players on this year's Vikings squad:
Week of August 28
#51 - Ernie Baung
Ernie led the defense with six tackles while anchoring an offensive line that paved the way for 265 yards rushing. He also played every snap of the game.
Week of September 11

Raeshawn was all over the field this week with 10 rushes for 109 yards. He scored three touchdowns, two receptions for 47 yards and an interception on defense.
