Good Luck, Knights!

Some say that the Wheeling Central Catholic High School Maroon Knights are the underdogs in tonight’s state Class A football championship game.

Perhaps, on paper. But as Coach Mike Young’s team has demonstrated several times this season, football is not played on paper.

There is, as one of our sports writers noted, “something special” about the Central team. It is a group of players and coaches who seem determined not just to do their best — but somehow, to go beyond that.

Good for the Knights, then, for proving some of the “experts” wrong. Good luck to them in trying tonight to do that one more time.
