Football Preview: Warriors look to finish with perfect season


Brett Stenlund

Tonight’s matchup vs Smoky Hill is very big for the Warriors for more reasons than one.  First, and most importantly, Arapahoe is looking to put the cap on a perfect regular season for only the second time in school history (the last time was 1989).  Furthermore, it is senior night for the Warriors which is an emotional time for the players, their parents and the student body.

In Arapahoe’s 53 year history the Warriors have only gone undefeated once, in 1989, coincidentally the senior season of Head Coach Mike Campbell.  The Warriors are trying to make history by doing it for only a second time.  The anticipation for game time has certainly been building and everyone in the school is aware of what is on the line.

In addition, it’s one of the more memorable games for the seniors on the team. Senior night is something that can weigh heavy on players, especially those who might not play beyond high school.  We know the Warriors are going to be in the playoffs with a high seed, however this is the last time these players will put on this uniform, in front of their home crowd, in the regular season.

The 7:00 p.m. start at LPS Stadium is sure to be filled with emotion and excitement for everyone in the stadium. The senior night introductions will begin at 6:15 p.m.
