Congratulations to the 2018 WCAC Football Champions!

Dear Alumni, Parents, and Friends,

I can’t resist sharing with the entire Gonzaga community footage and coverage of last night’s unbelievable ending to the WCAC championship matchup between Gonzaga and DeMatha. Here's livestream coverage of the last 45 seconds of the game (courtest of  1st Amendment Sports):

And here are several news stories from around the country:
It’s being called the greatest high school football game ever played. Credit for that goes to our remarkable coaching staff, led by Coach Randy Trivers, who instills in our boys relentless determination and dedication.

And of course, I couldn’t be more proud of the boys themselves who, despite all obstacles, never gave in and perhaps proved that God is indeed purple with this miraculous ending!

Enjoy and Go Eagles!

All the best,
Rev. Stephen W. Planning, SJ
