Adoree's accomplishments
During the game, Junior Adoree' Jackson accomplished the "unbelievable!" He scored on a punt return, a kick-off return and on a screen pass!

After the game, the Spirit of Troy played Conquest for any player who wanted to direct them. Trojan Candy took these three videos from across the field.

Saturday, November 12, 2016---Men's Water Polo vs. UCLA

Trojan Candy arrived fifty minutes early at the Uytengsu Stadium for the USC-UCLA water polo match. It was the last match of the regular season for my Trojans. UCLA was undefeated and ranked #1. They were riding a fifty-seven game win streak, and we haven't beaten them in two seasons.

The Stadium was filling up quickly. My sister Pat saved me a perfect seat to take pictures and videos.

Men of Troy
Our team warmed up.
Senior Salute
For Senior Salute, two Seniors were honored. Jon Walters was honored in Memoriam. Jon's younger brother James is currently on the team. FIGHT ON, forever, Jon! Senior and Team Captain Nick Bell was honored next. FIGHT ON, Nick!
The team huddled with Coach Vavic before the introductions.
