We had a returning star to the roster, a safety and running back, Eric Meyreles, who had been out due to a broken foot. Eric gave an outstanding performance on offense with two big touch downs. His first one gave Yorktown the hope to break this game wide open and they did just that. The team ended up winning the game with 455 yards of offense and played some lockdown defense on Horace Greeley, allowing only two touchdowns. A lot of credit also goes to head Coach Mike Resicgno for pushing and working with the team in order to make them the best they could be. From an interview with MSG Varsity, Coach Resigno stated, “It wasn’t hard to call plays today. I wasn’t trying to pull a rabbit out of the hat. We had great balance in the offense and this is just a good program win for us.”
After a big homecoming win like this one, the Yorktown Varsity football team is now back in the class A playoff race. With a few more wins, they may be able to clinch a spot and bring home a big title so Yorktown can bask in its glory.
All they needed and got is a win
