Congratulations to the Robertson High School Cardinal football team and coach Leroy Gonzalez for an amazing end to what started off as a difficult season.
The team began the season as an underdog, suffering a bruising 50-0 loss to St. Mike’s, and losses to Portales and Taos. Indeed, the Cards entered the playoffs with a No. 9 seed and a 5-5 record.
In short, Robertson wasn’t expected to get very far in the playoffs, and it certainly wasn’t predicted to walk away with the Class 3A state championship.
