Vikings playing for pride

(Continued)

And while tonight is seniors night, Luke pointed out that it will be 10 months before the Vikings are back out on Ned Whitesell Field.

“I know I’m going to miss it until next August,’’ said Cooper, one of eight defensive starters that will return for Danville. “I know that I need to work harder in the offseason to get to a place that I need to be for next year.

“As a team, we also need to work harder in the offseason to get ourselves better prepared to get back in the playoffs.’’

Tonight’s game will kickoff at 7 p.m. with the pregame festivities for the nine Danville seniors starting about 20 minutes before the game. Tonight’s game can also be heard locally on WDAN-AM 1490.
