This year didn’t come out of nowhere. When the Flames take the field against Pleasant Grove on Friday night in the Division I Sac-Joaquin Section semifinals, it will mark an occasion many coaches and players hoped to one day see. This squad has always had a unique mix of talent and camaraderie, as well as a history of winning, that made it destined for something special. Now, the Flames are a win away from playing for the section championship.

“Coming up through high school, and even since eighth grade, we knew when everyone was on varsity we would be good and it was either this year or never in my mind,” said Lodi senior star running back Jordan Perkins. “So we have just been trying to get it together and make history for Lodi High.”
