Conqs Are Bowl Bound

Nov 13, 2013
The Conquistador football will continue their outstanding season for one more game as it was announced that the Conqs have accepted a bid to the Valley of the Sun Bowl in Scottsdale, AZ.  The bowl game is hosted by Scottsdale Community College and will take place on December 7 at 2pm.  Head Coach Gary Thomas is pleased about this opportunity for the Conq team.  “Our players and staff are excited to be able to continue our season into the month of December.  With so few bowl games offered at the community college level, we have a unique opportunity against a very worthy opponent.”  The opponent, the Fighting Artichokes from Scottsdale are currently ranked #4 and boast a 9-1 record, losing their first game of the season before going on a 9-0 run. Thomas is enthusiastic about the matchup, “ Scottsdale has had a tremendous season and I look forward to testing our abilities against them.  It’s going to be a long trip for us, but it will be a trip that these young men will remember and cherish for the rest of their lives.  Our preparation starts now…”
