High school football fans across the northern part of Clay County are excited about the Northview Knights.

If you've been hiding under a rock, or just haven't been paying attention, here is what is going on: For the first time since 1958 a Clay County school has finished their football season with a perfect, undefeated season. This year, the Northview Knights went 8-0. Their last victim was Brown County, shutting out the Eagles 48-0 on Senior Night.

"Fittingly, it was the group of 14 seniors who all played high profile roles, not only ... Friday, but in bringing the Knights to the rarified air of an unbeaten regular season," wrote The Brazil Times Sports Editor Carey Fox in Saturday's newspaper.

As freshmen, these seniors were 1-7," Northview Coach George Gettle said in an interview with The Times. "It says a lot about this group of kids and all the hard work they've put in. for them to get to walk off the field undefeated -- this is a special group of kids."

Now, on to the Sectional, Friday night at Northview.

The Knights will play Franklin at 7 p.m.

Tickets are available at the Northview bookstore through Friday for $5 each.

For more information, call 448-2661, ext. 1205.
