"Down 11-0, the ever so gritty G-Men fought back, somehow finding the "refuse to lose" mentality inside of them, and overcame the deficit to score two second half touchdowns and then intercepted a pass in a late drive to stall any comeback hopes Valhalla had to earn the right to play for a NYS Class C Football Championship in the Syracuse Dome on Friday," said Gouverneur Coach Sean Devils on the Fans of Gouverneur Football Facebook page.
"This is the first time in GHS history that a our football team has ever made the State Championship Game, the first time a football team has won 11 games in one season, and only the second team in Section 10 to have made the NYS Final. I could not be more proud of our guys, unassuming, unselfish, hard working North Country kids that we are so happy for....and nobody is more deserving than them. I have said it numerous time...our fans, families, school and community is THE BESTyou deserve this as well, you are a part of it."
