Charlottesville, VA (December 15, 2014) – Aaron Wyche photographed the 2014 VHSL 5A State Championship match between LC Bird and Tuscarora High School on Saturday, December 13th and posted this PHOTO GALLERY with 159 images.
After a historic season of tragedy and triumph, records and remembrance, the Huskies, with all their heart gave all they had, but fell short of the title to the Skyhawks by the score of 22 – 19. Much can be said for such a magical season, but in terms of this team and the support of the community, Coach Michael Burnett’s words resonate well:
“Our society places too much emphasis on scores and banner and rings. If we judged teams on character, commitment and what personal sacrifices they will endure for others, then these boys are indeed Champions. They not only made themselves and their families proud, but they made an entire community proud in the process. Regardless of the final outcome I have never been so overcome with pride.”
