(FOUNTAIN, Co., SHOT 10/1/2004) Many of the players on Fountain-Fort Carson High School's football team have family members in the military, a fact not lost in the locker room with a large American flag hanging from the ceiling and a small American flag decal on every helmet. Junior OL/DL Christian Arroyo (#63) gathers his thoughts and focuses on that evening's game before head coach Mitch Johnson's pre-game pep talk before they played seventh-ranked Mitchell Friday night under the lights at their home stadium. It was a big conference game for Fountain-Fort Carson, who moved up from 3A to 4A this year, and was also the school's homecoming game. The team lacks experience returning only two starters and fell in the game 19-7. Head coach Mitch Johnson explains the teams 1-4 record saying, "the kids don't understand that you can't win every game, only one team walks away a winner".
