HOMECOMING: A SPARK TO REKINDLE THE FIRE FOR THE PLAYOFFS! The YHS homecoming football game proved to be an Semotional and rewarding time. A great number of alumni and other outside friends and family were there to support the Yorktown Huskers bring home the win! The Crop, along with the YHS band and the returning 1996 Champions, gave the team the energy it needed to push through Greeley’s defense, stopping their offence like a wall. It was a day for the Huskers to show Horace Greeley their corn pride and strength! The game’s score ended in a booming 42-14 win for the proud Huskers. The game was greatly executed by the coaches and staff. Most of the credit goes to the players for pushing through and executing as told. A lot of credit goes to Ryan Baker, a junior Quarterback, for leading his team to victory. With 7 passes, 7 completions and 32 rush yards, he was a key player in this win over Greeley.
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

    The Homecoming – Review The play is mean, funny, dark, disturbing, and mysterious. It sabotages the family by recognizing it as the perfect unit for delivery of pain and humiliation, the perfect power field on which to destroy or infantilize one’s opponents (who are all the other family members). In early Pinter, say up through 1965 when The Homecoming was first performed in London, the turf war reigns supreme. Here we have a large home in unfashionable North London, inhabited by four men: Max…
