The Monarch varsity football team gets pumped for their game at Levi's Stadium on Sept. 23.

For the first time, the varsity football team played at Levi’s Stadium, home of the San Francisco 49ers, on Sept. 23.  The team faced St. Mary’s of Stockton at the NFL stadium, which is in Santa Clara, a city located just outside San Jose.

The football team won with a victory of 54-14, keeping their spotless record of 5-0 at the time.

“Just playing in a NFL Stadium was great,” Assistant Head Coach Dean O’Hara said. “Everything was very professional.”

The ride up to Santa Clara was about six hours in a team bus.

“The ride up was worth and it was fun,” senior long snapper Connor Gallegos said.

Only half of the stadium was rented for the game, but the team was able to go into the home team’s locker room and use it.

For senior Tommy Brown, one of the varsity football team captains, playing in such a well-known professional stadium felt like a symbol of the team’s goals.

“It’s a lot of guys’ on the team dream to play in the NFL so this would lead us to what the future holds,” Brown said.

This was the team’s first time playing at Levi’s, but this was not the first opportunity they were given to play at a professional stadium. The team has also played at Angel Stadium in Anaheim and the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in LA.

“It was great just to play in an NFL Stadium,” senior varsity football captain Nikko Remigio said. “The hardest part was to stay focused during the long trip there.”
