The Time of Vikings, Friends and Family

The true story of the 1984 undefeated 12-0 Vanden Vikings football team, SCAL and Sac-Joaquin Section Champions, ranked #2 in California by Cal-Hi Sports and a group of friends who in five years played on three undefeated teams amassing a 45-4-2 record. This true inspiring coming-of-age story follows how their small Viking football team became one of the best in California and the country. One of the teammates had something to prove to himself and the game he loved after suffering a serious head injury on the gridiron—he wanted to show he could play again and share the field with his friends one last time. Their inspirational comeback story is told in the book - "We Took Names: The Time of Vikings, Friends and Family"
