The rain couldn’t dampen the enthusiasm on both sides of the football field as the Nyssa Bulldogs hosted the Vale Vikings.

While the game victory went to the Vikings, community spirit victory belongs to both Vale and Nyssa. A highlight for this football fan was halftime when the Nyssa High School band took the field.

As a former band member, it is awesome that Nyssa has a band program when so many schools have cut music education.
