After 54 years I got to witness the end to one of the longest dry spells in high school football. As an alumnus from Paonia High School it was so sweet to watch the Eagles win a state championship game at home.
Congratulations to the coaches and players for all of their time, effort and hard work that they put forth in achieving this goal. This continues the great tradition of being a championship school and place for an education.
We, the state champions of 1959, welcome home the 2013 state champions. Once an Eagle always an Eagle!
