Congrats to the Coach Atkins and Coach Stenstrom, their Viking players and fans, as well as to the 49ers!

A little background: last season, the Viking and 49er Jr PeeWee's met in the playoffs and fought to a tie in regulation play in a rainswept muddy slugfest in Santa Cruz. Although the Vikings beat RWC in the regular season matchup, RWC prevailed in overtime to take the playoff victory.

Those two teams, with many of the same coaches and players will this year seek the Peninsula Championship at the PeeWee level.

In a Pop Warner conference that stretches from Monterey to Daly City, to have local powerhouses Menlo Atherton and Redwood City compete for the JPW and PW crowns shows the quality and strength of their programs and speaks of the renaissance of youth football in the mid-peninsula area.

Great job, Vikings!

Saw the little kids team (mighty mites? play) at MA v SHP halftime last Friday - what a great show. Those 8 year olds could really play!

Good to see youth football make such a positive impact for the kids.

Great season, job well done by all the Viking teams. Football is the greatest of all the American games.

I played in this game back in 2011 we beat the Niners handily. It's so fun to read all these reports and comments 3 years later. I have moved and will be playing for Valor Christian High School next year. I wish luck to all my teammates from this memorable season and I hope to see you all again sometime. Again I thank the parents and fans for much of our success through junior league and although I missed my last year as a Viking, you all will be in my mind forever.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
