    "East opened in 1974 and we've been rivals every since," Jen Ford, secretary to the Henderson Athletic Director

    "From ball boy to water boy to manager to my second year as head coach, I've been around 30 years and we've always been very intense rivals," said Henderson headcoach Steve Mitten.

    The Warriors are 3-3 heading into Friday night's game, the East Vikings are 4 and 2.

    "They're an incredibly dangerous football team. They've got great speed, talent and are very, very well-coached," said Mitten."We have to work really hard to be competitive."
