I am very very very proud of the kids. They play as a team with great skills. They will go far in life because of their ability to work together. Sometimes in order to gain you have to lose- be humble and learning how to become better. learning is a viture that every champions have in order to be successful. These kids have it and they are going to Florida.

I believe the Knights came into the new league blind to the talent that existed. They played three teams in their conference twice, including the MV Cougars, which lost to the last place team in the Sac-San Joaquin section. If they believed the MV cougars were good, what did they expect of the Galt Warriors? I cannot believe they were still invited to the national championships when the Galt Jr. Warriors showed they were by far the superior organization at the NYFL state championship. The Warriors averaged 46 points a game for the season and gave up 7, while the Knights averaged 23 and gave up 3. Good luck in Florida, you will likely need it if you plan to end your losing streak.

I keep reading all the hype about the Knights??? They were shown the door quickly by Galt Jr Warriors. The home town paper talked about all of the turnovers?? In reality they just got Spanked by a much better team! Can you say Over-Rated!
