Goddard’s running backs gashed Capital’s defense for huge chunks of yards last week, thanks in large part to the holes created by two-year starter Nicholas Luna and his teammates on the O-line.

Goddard is going to need his stellar performance and more if they are to avenge a 31-28 loss to Piedra Vista in a game they had won until the last seconds.
Luna has overcome the challenge of being injured at the start of camp this summer. Realizing this is his final season to play high school football has meant even more to him.

RDR: What does it mean to be a senior and wear the Blue and White for the last time this year?
NL: “It means that I’m trying to be one of the first ones to come out here and be a leader. If people have questions, they can come up to me, and I will help them out the best way I can.”
RDR: What does it mean to be a Rocket?
NL: “It means coming out here every day and grinding until 7:30 p.m., taking super cold icebaths until your toes almost pop off. We work until we can’t breathe anymore. That helps us in the fourth quarter when we look over at the other team, and they look tired, they’ll look at us and see we aren’t tired at all, and they’ll fear us.”
RDR: Do you have any personal goals this year?
NL: “I just want to be the best senior I can be.”
