For September 1st’s version of Friday Night lights, it was a historical night for the Coyotes who let a 7 point lead disappear in the first half. Regarding one of the night’s historical moments, defensive backs coach, Terrence Thomas stated, “I hope we could build a legacy.” For the first time in school history the Coyotes won their home opener when they finished off the Jurupa Valley Jaguars 28-14, at Coyote Stadium. In front of another healthy crowd, Indian Springs grows to a 1-1 record for the first time in varsity football history. For some, understandably, the historical context was nothing worthy of hanging their hat on just yet. When asked what their first home opener win means to the program, athletic director John Chamberlain simply stated “it means we are 1-1. It means we are undefeated at home.” It was however, to many faithful in the stands, a little more than that. The student body was able to be present for a win, for the first time, at the beginning of the year. For a school who generally does not travel very well, being given a win up front means that their season is still filled with hope and a high morale. It is still early in the season and by no means is this a sign of a San Andreas league title, which the Coyotes have never seriously been in the conversation for. However, a win is a win, but a win, especially early in the season, is a good start. It’s a chance to build and continue on with anything still on the table. With 8 games left in the season, a win in week 2 means that week 3 holds a chance for the Coyotes to go 2-1, another first. The Coyotes will attempt to build on this historical win next week vs Pacific. This game will be played at Coyote Stadium with a rare “away” home game for the Coyotes.
