It was a rough start to the season for the Lake View Chiefs, losing their first four games. Two of those games, the Chiefs were a touchdown away from winning. 

The Chiefs were able to turn it around and win their last two games by getting a big win against Brownfield 35-0 and winning their homecoming game against Fabens 28-8. 

"Well, we're very excited for our players and our community has always stood behind us," assistant coach Daniel Mejia said. "North side pride, is what we what we yell around here, and the kids played well, and they battled the whole game."

North side pride, for those who are on the outside looking in and have no idea what it means, for the Lake View community is its mantra, motto and way of life for the entire school. It’s what motivates the players, coaches and community to come out Friday nights and leave it all out on the field. 

"North side pride to me and I believe to the players is the parents, supporting staff and school administrators making our players feel special," Mejia said.

With two Ws in the win column, the Chiefs and the pride of the north side are looking to make it three when they take on the Hereford Whitefaces at home Friday night. 

The Chiefs are looking to go 3-0 and continue to show the rest of West Texas what north side pride is all about. 

"It's a good feeling, winning fixes everything it's a good shot of energy and that's what we need," Mejia said "The two wins have been really good to us, made the kids feel a lot more confident in what they're doing coming into our next home game." 

Lake View is scheduled to kick off at 7 p.m. Friday at San Angelo Stadium.
