Pushing for Playoffs: Photo Recap

Varsity football players participate in the first two playoff games of the CHSAA 5A Football Championship.

As the sun sets, the bright lights of Echo Park Stadium shine over the field while the athletes warm up before the game. With a “Ski Out” theme, Jags and fans alike dressed in snow pants, ski goggles and beanies in support of the team’s first Colorado High School Activities Association (CHSAA) playoff game of the season.

On Nov. 2, the varsity football team faced off against the Arvada West Wildcats.

As the game ended on the crisp 42-degree night, the Jags came out on top, winning their first round of playoffs with a total of two field goals and two touchdowns, made by varsity tight end Reid Finch ‘24 and varsity wide receiver Sam Cuthbert ‘24. 

“I am most proud of how much the team has grown from game number one to our playoff run,” varsity football head coach Kevin Meyer said. “I think we fought hard versus Arvada West and played through adversity throughout the game.”

The Jags finished with a score of 20-14 W. This win moved them onto the second game of the football playoff bracket.

For the third time in the last three years, the Jaguars stepped onto the field to prepare for their second round of playoffs. This year, the Jags fought against the Ralston Valley Mustangs at the North Area Athletic Complex in Arvada after their second-round playoff loss last year 24-17. against the Columbine Rebels Nov. 11 2023. 

Kick-off was at 7:01 p.m., with Ralston Valley kicking the ball off to the Jaguars to begin the game. 

In the first quarter, the Jaguars struggled to keep the Mustangs away from their touchdown zone. The Mustangs scored their first touchdown within the first 20 minutes of the game. They then scored two more touchdowns during the first half of the game, leading halftime into a score of 21-0. 

During the second half of the game, the Jaguars went scoreless until the fourth quarter of the game, with the first touchdown being a 75-yard pass by quarterback Gavin Neira ‘24 to wide receiver Micheal Thulin ‘25, making the score 42-7. With only five minutes remaining on the scoreboard, the Jaguars marked their final point and scored another touchdown.

The game ended with a Jaguar loss to the Mustangs 42-14.
