We send a cheer up for Richmond’s Thomas Jefferson High School football team as the players head to the state 2A semifinals on Saturday, Dec. 7, against Stuarts Draft High School in Augusta County.
The team, under the leadership of Coach P.J. Adams, has worked hard this season, capitalizing on everyone’s strengths to garner an 11-2 record.
Stuarts Draft High, with its 12-1 record, may be a formidable opponent this weekend, but we believe the TJ Vikings have the focus and fire to pull out a win.
We hope to see the Vikings in the state finals on Saturday, Dec. 14, in Salem.
Until then, we hope the team hears the cheers and ap- plause from proud Richmonders that accompany them this Saturday.
