NORFOLK, Va. - It had been a long time coming. The past two seasons, Norfolk Christian (5-2) didn't have Friday night lights when homecoming season arrived.  This year, they were back, and looked better than ever.  After not fielding a varsity football team the last two seasons due to low numbers in interest, Norfolk Christian alumni and students filled the Azalea Little League Complex and watched the Ambassadors dominate on both sides of the ball against Greenbrier Christian (0-7).

Albert Rice gave the Ambassadors a boost on the ground with three rushing touchdowns, and grabbed himself the honor of Homecoming King in the process. "I think the fact that we came out here and played hard in front of our home crowd," says Rice. "That gives you extra adrenaline no matter what. We just wanted to impress our home crowd come out strong, keep winning. We've got goals to reach."

One of those goals is getting another Tidewater Conference Championship and state title. The Ambassadors take on Portsmouth Christian next week.
