A Redding High School football team is rewriting the history books!
Shasta defeated Marin Catholic 40-27 Saturday night in the Northern California Division 3-AA championship game at Thompson Field in Redding.
It's the first ever Northern California Championship for Shasta, a school that also captured their first section title since 1988 this season.
A couple Wolves spoke about the accomplishment with Action News Now.
"It definitely hit me this morning that we're the best in the North! It feels great and all the hard work paid off," said Detrius Kelsall.
"After the game we put on some music. We were all chanting and hollering and having a good time. We have another week together," said Troy Lyons.
Indeed they do.
Shasta turns its attention to the Division 3-AA state title showdown. The Wolves will face Bishop Diego of Santa Barbara Saturday at 6:00 p.m. at Santa Barbara City College.
Coaches and players began scouring through video of their opponent early Sunday morning.
It's one final game with a state title at stake.
"No matter how many people have the odds stacked against us, we're ready to go through that adversity and keep playing. We love the game and our bond as a team is as strong as one I've ever been on, it's remarkable," said Ian Garcia.
