So is that Pojoaque football team legit?
After Friday, the West Las Vegas Dons might be inclined to say yes.
The Elks ran their record to 6-1 with a 28-18 decision against the Dons at Perkins Stadium in the District 2-3A opener for both schools.
It continues a brilliant start for Pojoaque, which had been an also-ran in the district’s football race for years.
But it was a closer game than the final score indicated, and with 10 minutes left, the Dons trailed by a mere three points.
