Season opening victory over Mammoth

Julia Castiglione

Fresno Christian Eagles kicked off the Football season on, Aug. 18, against Mammoth High School on Eagle’s home field. Bleachers were packed with students decked out in Hawaiian theme apparel with Hawaiian shirts and leis to bring awareness to the victims of the Maui wildfires.

Game highlights

Eagles closed out the game by defeating Mammoth 34-6, setting the pace for the rest of the 2023 season.

Logan Scotts,’24, was able to pull off three consecutive touchdowns which were followed up with a touchdown made by Dylan Fittro,’25.

Gavin Hoffman,’26, opened the season starting for the first time as center.

“Highlight for the night was the hype feeling of being in full pads with a stadium full of fans,” Hoffman said.” The pre-game locker room pumps us up and it’s pretty epic.”

In full tacky tourist Hawaiian attire, leadership hosted hula hoop and limbo contests throughout the game to an energetic student section. 

Hula hoop runner-up, Jasity Wilborn, ‘25, hopes for a rematch in an upcoming game. 

“I can’t believe I lost to Donavan!” Wilborn said. “Such a fun night, my favorite highlights were the group-led chants and the yummy mac and cheese.”
